City of Palmerston

The Heights, Durack Community Centre

Palmerston artists, crafters and hobbyists!
Are you looking for a space to spread out, make some mess and a bit of noise while you get stuck into your project? Do you need a bit more room for you and your friends to get together and stitch, paint, draw, print, write, practice, perform or dream?

Palmerston's first and only purpose-built art and culture space is located at 33 Packard Avenue, overlooking the lake in The Heights, Durack. This facility supports artists and creative enterprises and provides Palmerston residents with the opportunity to engage with and enjoy art.

The facility has high ceilings, plenty of cross ventilation and natural lighting. The art rooms open to a balcony, there’s a small kitchenette, storage space and the rooms themselves are specifically designed for art and craft activities. Hold a creative class or cultural activity, or use the space for your own personal art and craft activities.
