We have only recently acquired our new home, and there will be a period of months, spanning well into 2024, during which changes will be made to make it fully fit our needs. Nevertheless, we are already open for public events

For all events including classes, workshops, non-residential retreats and regular activities everything is provided at the centre to support your learning. All you need to do is come along in casual, comfortable clothes.

Bookable events usually have a fee and these are advised at the time of booking. For all other regular events we suggest koha/dana to help support the centre and this can be paid in cash or by EFTPOS when you attend.

How to get here

Normanby Rd runs between Mt Eden Rd (just at the base of the mountain) and the roundabout at the Boston Rd / Nugent St intersection.

Buses run through Mt Eden Rd, Khyber Pass Rd and Symonds St. Until the new Mt Eden rail hub opens, the nearest train station is Grafton station, about a ten minute walk.

We are situated down a driveway / parking area (just behind the big brick Normanby Rd Vet Clinic). Once you have entered the car park area, our building is on the right hand side.


We have four marked carparks directly in front of the building, and another two just opposite. You may also find parking on the street ($1 per hour Mon - Fri 9am - 6pm, free outside those times). Allow time to find a park and walk.

Outside of business hours, you can use the carparks next to ours labelled Blue Fitness. Please do not use other parks within the complex, particularly those marked Tow Away and those outside Simon James, which is open weekdays, on the weekends and sometimes hosts evening events as well.
