Planet X Youth Centre

Planet X is a drop-in centre for young people aged 12 to 18 years.

It is fun and safe space for young people to hang out, participate in activities and programs and chat to Youthworkers with whatever is on their mind. And if you’re having a bad day, we can help out with that.

We have a ping pong table, air hockey table, computers, consoles, art equipment, sports and skate gear, and the best toasties on the planet (along with other food and refreshments. Like our famous Fri afternoon BBQ).

Planet X Youth Centre also hosts Shoreshocked, annual free music festival to celebrate Youth Week.

We also have a music studio/jam space with drums, PA, mics, guitars, etc.

We operate within Covid Safe guidelines so please keep this in mind.

We have to keep you and others safe so please use the hand sanitisers, keep your distance, and isolate if you’re feeling unwell.

(Please note that you’ll also need to let us know of your contact details in case we need to get hold of you if there’s a Zombie Breakout.)
