The Redbank Plains Community Centre opened in May 2018, co-funded by Ipswich City Council and the Queensland State Government. The Community Centre is managed by Multicultural Australia Ltd. The centre is a place of social connection and support with many activities available for residents and visitors.

Over the past three years, we have asked for feedback to understand the needs of the Redbank Plains community, to support work being done by the Centre, and to assess the impact of the Centre in the Redbank Plains community.

Feedback has shown that the Centre has established itself as a place of social connection and support, is responsive to community needs and is valuable asset to the community.
