The Diamond Valley Learning Centre started in 1974 to assist women returning to study. It was one of the first adult community education centres in Victoria. Over the years it has grown and the program has expanded to meet a wide range of learners’ needs. The Centre operates out of a 1920s weatherboard building which was originally Lobb’s Tea Rooms.

It was used by the peace corp in the war years then became footy change rooms in the 1960s. It has been renovated a number of times as the centre grows and changes.Each room at the centre is named after different women who played a significant role in the development of the centre.Awards
