Welcome to Japara Living & Learning Centre

A place for life-long learning and social connection for the people of Kilsyth and beyond.

With respect and passion, we warmly welcome everyone to Japara Neighbourhood House. We are a not-for-profit organisation, dedicated to creating a safe and nurturing environment that inspires
life-long learning, individual growth and friendships. A place where everyone belongs and where everyone can thrive.

At Japara House, we offer a wide range of educational, recreational, and social support programs. We provide these programs and services through our state-of-the-art Living and Learning Centre, our purpose-built Early Years Centre and the historic Bridge House, bordering the beautiful Elizabeth Bridge Reserve.
