The Waterhole –  Alice Springs

The Waterhole is The Salvation Army’s open door to the community.

Since opening in late 2012, The Salvation Army’s ‘The Waterhole’ community centre in Alice Springs has been working hard to ensure the centre lives up to its name: that it is a place of tranquillity, a place of meeting and a place of possibility.

The Community Centre welcomes you to use the facilities, to get out of the heat (in summer) or the cold (in winter),

Facilities include

  • Showers
  • Washing Machines and Powder
  • Teas and Coffees
  • Kitchenette
  • Art workshops
  • Television and DVD player to watch films
  • Chairs and sofas

You can become a member by donating 50c per visit which helps us to cover the cost of teas, coffee, art materials and food provided .
