Margaret River Community Centre is located at 33 Tunbridge Street, Margaret River, WA 6285.Our handy central location makes us easily accessible from the centre of town, but just far enough off the main street not to be swamped by tourist parking in the peak seasons.

The site, the Old Hospital Heritage Precinct, incorporates eight buildings and is listed on the Shire Municipal Inventory of Heritage Places; the State Heritage Register; and also registered by the National Trust. MRCRC leases the facility from the Shire of Augusta-Margaret River.

The Margaret River Community Centre  started in a small house on the corner of Station and Wallcliffe Roads.

In 1983 having visited a number of Learning Centres in the eastern states and being excited about the prospect of what they offered the community, a Margaret River resident instigated community discussion about establishing a Neighbourhood House in Margaret River. Subsequently the first meeting of the Margaret River Community Centre took place in June 1984.

Over the following years the Centre developed through the energies and commitment of a team of volunteers and ran a variety of programs. In 1990 the organisation relocated to the old Margaret Hospital complex.
