About Us

Everybody is welcome! The Duntroon Community Centre (DCC) is a facility for both Defence and non-Defence families of the greater Canberra region. We have been providing services to the community for over seventeen years. Our programs include 3 year old Playschool, Playgroups, community events, craft groups, short courses and social activities. We also loan ski outfits and cake tins to our members. Feel free to drop in and meet us to see what we can offer you and your family.

Opened originally in 1981, Duntroon Community Centre (DCC) has always offered Defence families a place to go for companionship and support. The DCC became incorporated in May 1992 and the Playschool program started soon after. Moving to our current location in July 2003, DCC is a fabulous facility (located on the grounds of The Royal Military College of Australia) and offers a diverse array of programs and activities, available to both Defence and non-Defence families. 


A voluntary committee manages the DCC and aims to ensure that our objectives are being met. All members are encouraged to offer their services as a member on the Management Committee and all members are invited to attend committee meetings held each month. Fresh faces and fresh ideas are an important part in keeping the DCC an interesting and exciting place to be part of.


Our prime method of communication is via the e-newletter, which is issued once a term in (approx.) Week 5. The current and past term’s e-newsletters is available here.

We also have a Facebook page where updates are given and event details are placed. This is a great way to keep in regular touch as well as have immediate updates on happenings. You can connect with us here.

Upcoming events are advertised in the e-newsletter and flyers are placed on the noticeboards around the Centre. You can also check out what events are coming next on our Events page. Sign up sheets are also placed on the noticeboards when assistance is required from volunteers.
