Our History

In 1976, the Commonwealth handed over a tired and dilapidated army depot in Marrickville for public use as a community centre and recreational space. After considering many proposals and an extensive survey of local residents, the call for a place where people could maintain and share cultures brought to Australia from all over the world was answered with the creation of the Addison Road Community Centre.

Hundreds of volunteers – from ethnic welfare groups and children’s services, artists, environmentalists, social workers and activists – pulled together to renovate and transform the old army huts and create a green, welcoming and supportive place. In its early years, the Centre was supported by local council and received federal funding under programs for arts and multicultural development, thanks to Marrickville’s status as one of the most ethnically diverse and under-resourced regions in the country. Today, Addi Road is managed by an independent charity, the Addison Road Community Centre Organisation (ARCCO), and is one of the largest and longest-running community centres in Australia.
