About Us
Mission Statement

An environment for participation, growth and learning with a commitment to building a strong community spirit.

Serving Our Community

The Basin Community House Inc is situated at the foot of The Dandenong Ranges in a picturesque semi-rural setting, adjacent to The Basin Primary School.

The community of The Basin has a very distinct local identity, with a strong community focus. The Basin Community House Inc is a not for profit organisation that is committed to providing quality, relevant and accountable services to the community.

The Basin Community House Inc seeks to be an organisation that is available for all people to use, which enhances the quality of their lives, improves their sense of belonging and connection to their local community.

Our Team

We have a team of qualified and experienced staff and sessional tutors that deliver our programs. The Basin Community House Inc is supported by a dedicated group of volunteers who help look after reception and administration. The commitment, enthusiasm and loyalty of the volunteers, Committee of Management, staff and tutors are the “priceless” factor that makes our Community House “Something Special”.

Statement of Purpose

The Basin Community House is committed to providing affordable quality adult education programs which increase skills, employment opportunities and pathways to further study. In a supportive and inclusive environment we offer a diverse range of volunteering, community development and social programs to encourage residents to participate in active community life.

Adult Education in Community Houses

Community Houses aim to increase the life opportunities of their local communities by providing education, support, childcare, sharing of resources and access to networks in a warm and caring environment.


We have three class/meeting rooms (which are available for hire), a computer room with twelve training computers and two kitchen areas. There is a ramp for disabled access and a toilet accessible to wheelchairs.

Limited onsite parking is available in the car park and there is a disabled parking space. Further parking is available opposite the Community House, in Goodwin Street, or Basin Court or in The Basin Primary school car park (100m down Mountain Highway towards Liverpool Road).

Please refer to the room and hall hire page for further details.
