The Marwal Centre and Senior Citizens’ Club

The Marwal Centre in North Balwyn offers a welcoming and comfortable environment where a variety of Social Activities are provided. As home to the North Balwyn Senior Citizens’ Club the Centre also provides many opportunities for rewarding companionship and activities.

It is with regret that for the safety of our clients and staff we have made a decision to temporarily close our community centres (Canterbury Centre and Marwal Centre) as well as our dementia day centre (Maranoa House) effective immediately.  This measure will assist in preventing the possible spread of the coronavirus disease.  At this time we are not aware of any confirmed cases where a client or staff member has contracted the coronavirus disease.

As you can appreciate this is a very uncertain time for everyone and we will re-commence our services as soon as possible. 

The Marwal Centre in North Balwyn has a range of services available to the community, in addition to being the “home” of the North Balwyn Senior Citizens’ Club.
