About Us

The Business Centre acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land on which we meet and work. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.

The Business Centre is a community invested organisation that has been responding to the needs of entrepreneurs, businesses and governments for more than 34 years. We are a not-for-profit with the sole purpose of creating sustainability; in jobs, businesses, urban and rural economies.

Our strength has been built on our ability to develop long term relationships, listen and respond to our community, while adapting to a continually changing business environment. We deliver experience led advice, mentoring, education and connections to achieve customer and community goals.

In a nutshell? We are all about creating sustainable economies and resilient communities.
