The heart of a strong community is a meeting place where people come and gather, share information and care for each other.

The Wandana Community Centre is run for and by the community at Gilles Plains in Adelaide’s north.  Respecting people from a diversity of backgrounds, cultures, ages and gender, the Centre fosters and encourages personal growth and lifelong learning.


Computer classes

Basic digital and computing skills play an important role in job hunting. Get work ready and learn how to use programs such as Word and Excel at our weekly computing classes.  They are a great way to learn new skills and increase your confidence behind a screen. We also hold sessions for beginners. If you’ve never used a computer before, do not worry! We will help you get started and teach you how to navigate the web. Bookings are essential. For more information, please phone our team at Wandana 8261 8124 or email

Community Garden

The grounds of the Wandana Community Centre house our community garden, with shared (not individual) plots.  Produce is distributed among the gardeners and the Community Centre Kitchen.  The garden is also home to a fruit and nut orchard, bush food area, indigenous plant trail and raised garden beds to assist people with disabilities.

The garden promotes knowledge about sustainable food production and nutrition while being a great way to keep fit and make friends.
