New vibrant hub for South Hobart

THE South Hobart Community Centre is undergoing an upgrade after half a century in its present state.

The new design will merge the future while preserving the past.

An outward facing wall of the redeveloped centre will be curved to make room for the existing 50-year-old tree onsite and a heritage blackboard will be turned into a surface for children to draw on.

Dr Ian Newman donated the blackboard, which he taught on and salvaged after decades of use in the University of Tasmania’s mathematics and physics building.
