We are The Hub, in Bairnsdale, East Gippsland, Victoria - a space for community and education.

Recently, management of the Hub has been taken over by the Gippsland East Local Learning and Employment Network, [or GELLEN] - a non-for-profit organisation that works across the East Gippsland and Wellington shires, brokering partnership deals between schools, students and education facilities. 

Our members are passionate about giving our young people a better go. We contribute to the improvement of opportunities for young people by tackling regional issues in the complex process of getting young people into post-school education, training and work by addressing gaps in existing services or pilot self-sustaining new initiatives. [Individual and organisations may apply to be members of the LLEN - no membership fee is required.]

The Bairnsdale Hub is home to a wide range of arts and community groups - and we are looking to expand and become a thriving centre for community, education and innovation in Bairnsdale.

Are you part of a social enterprise, community group or do you have an idea for a workshop or class? We currently have spaces available for arts and crafts; cooking; and flexible spaces that could be used for dance, theatre, yoga, meditation, workshops, gardening, evening classes or whatever you can dream up!

We also have rooms suitable for meetings; corporate training sessions and events.

Visit our contact page to get in touch about future bookings, events and information.


AND! In early 2018 we will be launching an incubator at The Hub. The first of its kind in East Gippsland, the incubator will be a space for budding entrepreneurs to rapidly develop their ideas, network, develop business skills and access mentorship. Stay tuned for more details.
