Coronavirus Update (COVID-19) Council Closures and Cancellations

08 April 2020

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Greater Dandenong Council has closed all Council Customer Service Centres, libraries, arts venues and leisure and aquatic centres and cancelled all Council events, workshops and activities.


Council has made the difficult decision to temporarily close all Council Customer Service Centres to walk-in customers.

Libraries, arts venues and leisure and aquatic centres are now closed until further notice. This includes:

  • Dandenong Library
  • Springvale Library
  • Drum Theatre
  • Walker Street Gallery and Arts Centre
  • Heritage Hill Museum and Historic Gardens
  • Dandenong Oasis
  • Noble Park Aquatic Centre
  • Springers Leisure Centre
  • Dandenong Basketball Stadium
  • Gloria Pyke Netball Stadium

Paddy O’Donoghue Centre and Jan Wilson Community Centre remain open for essential services only. 

We encourage customers to use our online services or phone us on 8571 1000 for any assistance. Our call centre remains fully operational.

Council has not taken these decisions lightly but has done so in the interests of the health and wellbeing of our community, which is paramount. 

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. 

Event Cancellations

The State Government has declared Victoria to be in a State of Emergency for the next four weeks. The Government has also banned gatherings of more than 500 people outdoors and 100 people indoors and asked Victorians to avoid all non-essential gatherings of any size. For this reason all Council events, workshops and activities have been cancelled until the end of April.

This includes:

  • Cinema in the Square
  • Keysborough’s Big Picnic
  • Sustainability Festival
  • Dandy-Con
  • Drum Theatre shows
  • Youth Services events
  • Library programs
  • Arts workshops
  • Citizenship Ceremonies

We appreciate your understanding and will keep you updated as details become available.

If you require assistance, please contact Council on 8571 1000. Our Call Centre remains fully operational.
