Eltham Community & Reception Centre

The Eltham Community and Reception Centre is the Shire’s premiere function venue providing a fully-accessible and functional community space. The beautiful and recently renovated building is set amidst lovely native grounds, retaining the unique character of the original iconic mudbrick building.

Refurbishment to the centre was completed in June 2017 and included accessibility upgrades, water harvesting, solar power, improved lighting, new amplifiers, improved foyer and commercial standard kitchen.

A landscaped amphitheatre provides a distinctive viewing area to enjoy concerts and performing arts activities.
