About Us
The Clunes Neighbourhood House is a locally managed, not-for-profit community learning centre providing quality adult education opportunities for life long learning. We are located inside the Lee Medlyn Home of Bottles, at 70 Bailey Street, Clunes, and our phone number is (03) 5345 4078.

We strive to reflect the needs of the community to which we belong. We provide the opportunity for everyone to participate in learning not necessarily "to get a job" but to enrich their lives through finding out about the things that we need or just want to know. We provide a social connection for people who may not otherwise have local connections within the community and a safe comfortable learning environment close to home. We also work with many other organisations to provide access to other services.

We invite you to call in and have chat about the programs we provide or you would like us to provide.

Our Team
Clunes Neighbourhood House Inc. is an Incorporated Association managed by a local Community based Committee of Management employing a paid Coordinator and small team of staff. An integral part of our operations depends on our wonderful volunteers who assist and support many of our activities including the production of our Term Progammes and the Clunes Local Phone Book. They also make a major contribution to many of the day to day operations of the organisation.

As an Incorporated Association we welcome community membership. Being a member enables you to attend quarterly meetings and also to become a member of the Committee. We are always keen for participation from the community to reflect the needs of the community of which we are a part.

Learning for the Future
Clunes Neighbourhood House has introduced new training courses in Level I and II Food Safety. Find out how easy it is to study right there on your own computer or use our computer lab.

Mens Shed for Clunes
We are currently working on building our new Men's Shed for Clunes in our Community Space. Please visit the Clunes Mens Shed page to find out more.

Our latest Community Space resident Community Space
Community spaces & gardens provide common ground for communal activities and for growing plants that feed and heal and provide aesthetic pleasure. They are civic spaces where people work and recreate to nourish themselves, their families and friends. The gardeners' shared labor also builds a stronger sense of belonging to their physical environment and connection to other gardeners. Community gardens are the collective effort of people with the patience and determination to make things grow.

The Clunes Community Space is situated in Alliance St right opposite the CFA.

Since its inception the Committe has been working towards developing the site and installing a vegetable garden, fruit trees, tables and disability friendly garden beds.

A growing number of people have been gathering at the community space on Tuesdays. They are shaping the space into a versatile and productive outdoor hive of activity. New soil has been brought to the site, the garden beds are taking shape, and the communal campfire and pizza oven have been fired up for warmth and cooking lunch.

The wood fired pizza oven is available for community use.

No Membership Fees. The Wood Fire Oven & Gas BBQ available on request.
