We ask that visitors do not attend our facilities if you; have returned from overseas or a COVID-19 hotspot in the last 14 days, have cold or flu like symptoms, have been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the last 14 days.

Gladstone Regional Council will continue to prioritise the safety and wellbeing of the community and will continue to abide by the Queensland Government’s health directive.

Community Centre at the heart of the community
The newly opened Philip Street Communities and Families Precinct is now home to the Council’s Community and Neighbourhood Centre, along with The Salvation Army Gladstone and GAPDL Communities for Children.
In addition to these primary tenants, visiting community groups and services will also spend time at the precinct. If you’re interested in booking one of the meeting rooms or spaces at the precinct please complete the expression of interest form.
The Philip Street Precinct is strengthening Gladstone’s community and social service system by the clustering of community facilities and collaboration of services to enhance and improve community outcomes.
The precinct offers a unique opportunity for service providers and community groups to move beyond co-location to a true partnership model which fosters inclusion, connectedness and enables access to resources and services.
The Philip Street Precinct is open Monday to Friday from 8.15am to 5pm, excluding public holidays.
