About the project

The Bendigo and District Aboriginal Corporation (BDAC) developed a property in Prouses Rd, Bendigo to cater for the future growth of BDAC and the community it serves. 

The Health and Community Centre precinct houses all of the services provided by BDAC in one location to ensure that the local Aboriginal community receives comprehensive and holistic services. Previously, services were located in three sites in and around Bendigo. The precinct includes a new kindergarten, djimbaya, which offers sessional 3 and 4-year-old kindergarten for local children.

This centre was previously known as Prouses Road Development.


As part of the 2016–2017 Children's Facilities Capital Program Major Grants, $650,000 was allocated to the project.
