About us

The Diverciti Centre was founded in October 2013 when it was acquired from the Italo-Australia Centre. We believe in Commitment to the Community and with our newly renovated facilities, we want to be able to bless others with the use of the building. We also strongly believe and encourage Multiculturalism and we strive to actively break down dividing walls and to love people of all nations, cultures, languages, generations, education and financial statuses.

We have used Diverciti Centre for a number of different events and have come to appreciate how they quickly and effortlessly deliver what we want with minimum fuss. Recently we asked the team at Diverciti Centre to put together a community forum for a Commonwealth Government Department on short notice. In less than a week they were able to set up, cater and deliver an event for 500 people while skillfully meeting the needs of a diverse group of stakeholders including the department sponsoring the event, state and federal members of parliament, state and federal police, media and a variety of community groups.

It was another successful event and a great end of the year concert. What a wonderful opportunity it was for Co.As.It. Community Services to use a venue that was so central to our community. While there is a lot of planning to make all parts of any event flow together smoothly, what we appreciated most about working with the Diverciti team was their ability to understand the requirements of not only the performers but also our staff and volunteers. We found the staff to be very organized and thoughtful of all aspects leading up to the event and on the event day.

The quality of all aspects of the facility was outstanding not to mention the excellent sound and lighting equipment and the opportunity to host 500 people. We were thrilled to have full technical and professional support throughout the concert, which was an overwhelming success. We can confidently recommend and use the Diverciti Centre again in the future.

I have been involved in several concerts that used the Diverciti Centre as the venue. The facilities are amazing and the sound and lighting team can figure out how to do just about anything a performer can ask for. The team are like family, they are warm and very welcoming - they make things so easy! I haven’t seen another venue that services as good as that!

Our organisation hosts a large dinner each year, generally with several hundred people in attendance. This year we handed the entire function over to Diverciti Centre to organise and run for us. When we first made contact with Diverciti Centre they said they would have a full quote to us in 30 minutes and our event manager would be in touch in less than an hour to start planning our event. Much to my surprise, that is exactly what happened. From there on the whole process was so simple, we talked with our event manager about our budget and what we wanted and they made it all happen for us.
