South Hobart Community Centre

South Hobart Community Centre Exterior


The South Hobart Community Centre at 42 Darcy St, South Hobart is operated by volunteers from the South Hobart Progress Association.

The recently renovated Centre has air-conditioning, two toilets (one with disabled access), a kitchen with stove (oven and hotplates), refrigerator and a Zip boiling water unit. It also has folding trestle tables and stackable chairs available for use. 

There is level access to the Centre through the Darcy St playground and large sliding glass doors open widely to a covered outside area facing towards the playground. 

Hiring the Centre:

The cost of hiring the Centre is $25 per hour for casual bookings and $15 per hour for those making a recurrent weekly or monthly booking.

Note that the hire agreement (link on right hand side of this page) must be consented to at the time of booking. Consent is indicated by ticking the box on the online booking form. 

Because of the location of the Centre in a residential area the Centre may not be hired for a teenage or 21st party. There is also a finish time of 10 pm for any evening function.

Please be aware that the Association runs the Centre on a voluntary basis and while every attempt will be made to answer queries and confirm bookings in a timely manner an immediate response should not be expected. If you do not get a response to an online booking within 48 hours, please email the Bookings Manager, Emma Gunn on @email

The Centre was completely renovated with generous grants from both the Tasmanian Community Fund and The City of Hobart in 2020.  The Association is most grateful for the support of these two institutions.  We now has a magnificent Centre which caters to the needs of an ever-widening group of individuals and local groups.
