The centre consists of a multi-purpose room, sculpture workshop, pottery room, studio/office space and an exhibition space. For more information on hiring spaces within this facility contact Customer Service on 9528 0333.

Birthday parties are not permitted at the centre.

Rockingham Art Volunteers needed

The Rockingham Arts Centre is looking for people interested in the arts to form a dedicated group of volunteers who will assist with the manning and running of both City exhibitions and events, plus community exhibitions, at the Rockingham Arts Centre.
