At Woodend Neighbourhood House, we offer courses, workshops, and spaces to hire.
We’re big on building activities to connect the Woodend community, and supporting our local volunteer groups to have a go. It’s a fun place to be!

How to reduce your risk of coronavirus from the Victorian Department of Health
- Wash hands often with soap and running water, for at least 20 seconds. Dry with paper towel or hand dryer.
- Try not to touch your eyes, nose or mouth.
- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t have a tissue cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow.
- Stay at home if you feel sick. If you take medication make sure you have enough.
- Phone your doctor or the hotline – 1800 675 398 – if you need medical attention. They will tell you what to do.
- Continue healthy habits: exercise, drink water, get plenty of sleep.
- Wearing a face mask is not necessary if you are well.
- Buy an alcohol-based hand sanitiser with over 60 per cent alcohol.
We recommend checking directly with the organiser of any activity to obtain information on whether it is running and if there are special additional precautions.
