A new community centre, located on Macedon Parade in Wollert, is now open and providing much-needed services to this booming suburb and surrounding neighbourhoods.
Ganbu Gulinj Community Centre, which means “One Mob” in Wurundjeri language, includes a modern three-room kindergarten with space for up to 99 kids, two fully-equipped maternal and child health suites and a public community room.
The new $7 million community facility is part of Council’s long-term plan to provide residents with local access to key infrastructure and services.
With 76 babies born into the City of Whittlesea every week, Council is boosting construction of community hubs like Ganbu Gulinj Community Centre to provide additional kindergarten places and maternal and child health services in the city’s fastest-growing suburbs.
Council’s maternal and child health service is free for families with children from birth to school age and helps to optimise the health, wellbeing and development of children and their families. For appointments phone 9404 8888.
Ganbu Gulinj kindergarten is now accepting four-year old kindergarten enrolments for Term 1, 2021.

Ganbu Gulinj Community Centre was delivered by the City of Whittlesea in partnership with the Victorian Government and Lendlease.
