The Community Environment Centre (CEC) provides a valuable community resource, offering on-site demonstration facilities, information and research materials, workshops and practical information sessions for the benefit of local residents.

The CEC features a large native garden, an organic vegetable garden and water and energy saving installations. All these sites contain displays and interpretative signage designed to encourage sustainable practices and community action. The CEC provides information about existing government rebates and grants on energy and water saving opportunities.
