Multicultural Village spaces

Good for: Weekend workshops, children’s birthday parties, informal meetings, community gatherings, small dance groups, music groups and casual hire.


The Multicultural Village is home to four independent venues available to be booked collectively or independently. Located right in the depths of CERES parkland on the border with Merri Creek the village spaces are used for CERES cultural education programs throughout the school term.

The two indoor spaces, the Multicultural Classroom and the Dapur, are simple classroom style venues. The Multicultural Classroom sits atop the hill while the Dapur is located within the Indonesian Village allowing access to an exclusive outdoor space. Featuring abundant natural light, ceiling fans and running water these basic spaces are only a short distance from the nature play area and the main CERES public toilets.

The two outdoor spaces, the Namalata Willem and African Shelter, are covered spaces with purpose built fire pits and unique design.

These spaces are available to hire on evenings, weekends and in school holidays. Please note that these venues are not vehicle accessible.
