Our Response to COVID-19

We’re keeping our volunteers, staff, educators, students, and broader community safe.

The EcoCentre is adapting our programs based on expert public health advice. Until 13 April, almost all programs will be digitised (meetings) or postponed (events). If you've registered for any activities, we'll be in touch with you directly. 

Uncertain about your booking? Curious about home compost? Thought up a great tip for being actively green during quarantine? To help our staff work flexibly, chatting to us by email is best:

If you're self-isolating, take care of your mental health and wellbeing by remaining connected to nature. Try and find time to go for a walk by the beach, sit in your garden or on your balcony, or do some mindfulness activities in the park. Just remember to maintain recommended social distance of 1.5m. Stay green during quarantine!

Information and advice on Coronavirus (COVID-19) is constantly changing and updated here. If you are concerned, please contact the Department of Health and Human Services Coronavirus Hotline on 1800 675 398. 

Our planet still needs our care. We're still doing what needs to be done!

We pay respects to their Elders past and present, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and Elder members of our multicultural community.
