The Bunyip & District Community House had its renaming ceremony on July 16th.
We are now known as Moy-Yan Neighbourhood House.
Moy-Yan is the traditional name for Silver Wattle Tree.

For 20 years our Neighbourhood House has served the community providing a variety of education, support & health & wellbeing services.
We pride ourselves on working hard to be a place where everyone feels welcome.

"Happy 20th Anniversary to the newly named Moy-Yan Neighbourhood House and what a fantastic event!

About Us

As a result of hundreds of businesses severely impacted by the Bunyip Complex bushfires in March 2019, several passionate volunteers formed the West Gippsland Progress Association Inc. (WGPA), which is now at the forefront of the community's long-term economic recovery and resilience effort.

In addition to the impact of the bushfires, many local businesses have also suffered considerable losses due to the COVID 19 pandemic, which has further enhanced the motivation and drive of WGPA to support the local economic recovery even further.
Our Mission.
To develop a network and partnerships for businesses within our local community in the West Gippsland region. Engage local businesses and key community organisations to develop and execute plans which enhance the local economy. Provide a forum that enhances small business development and mentoring opportunities.

Why should you plant locally native plants?
Indigenous plants are more hardy and easier to maintain than others. They generally need less water, saving you money and reducing water usage. Indigenous plants also provide food and shelter for native animals and make a beautiful addition to any garden.

We are open on Fridays from 9am-12pm
Also Saturdays from 9am-1pm
from 5 November until Christmas
