About Us

We seek to provide the community and corporations with a high quality function centre on the edge of the Barossa Valley, while being a space for local groups and individuals to celebrate and build relationships. Our vision for the Hewett Centre is “Celebrating Community through Being Community and Building Community”.

The Hewett Centre is a purpose built, not-for-profit community and function centre providing a central meeting place for those living in the Hewett area, the Light District Council and beyond.


The Hewett Centre is a new and exciting Function and Community Centre in the northern suburbs only 20 minutes from the Barossa Valley and 50 minutes from Adelaide. The property is surrounded by majestic red gums and native wildlife, a tranquil setting for your attendees.

An ideal location for a variety of functions, offering stunning views of the surrounding bushland. The venue and grounds, which include a modern outdoor decking area, provide a scenic and relaxing environment for your function. Hewett Centre is designed specifically to change its room sizes to accommodate an array of conference needs, parties, dinners and special occasions, catering from smaller more intimate groups to larger functions.

The Hewett Centre is perfect for a variety of conferences including training, seminars, presentations, product launches and team building supported with modern technology services and friendly professional staff supervision.

Your dedicated event co-ordinator will strive to ensure your expectations are exceeded. There are a variety of packages for you to choose from. We can offer delicious menu options and innovative optional extras to make your day an unforgettable event.


The heart of the Hewett Centre is community involvement and this is displayed through an array of activities held at the centre regularly. Throughout the year several Adult Community Education sessions are run in areas such as computing, photography and crafts. These classes are recognised through the Skills For All initiative and assist many people in the community to gain further knowledge and skills. We also offer Health and Wellbeing classes such as Yoga, Meditation and Pilates. Some classes are run weekly whilst others are conducted periodically throughout the year.
It is also the home of the Hewett Community Church of Christ, who holds a weekly church service on Sunday and other programs during the week.

A strong community presence is the result of a growing group of local volunteers who assist in areas including administration, functions and maintenance. The Hewett Centre also provides family activities such as Move and Groove – a music programme run for infants to pre-schoolers which aims to build confidence, relationships and memories. During the school holidays older children are catered for with Performing Arts programmes and Digital Photography sessions, with more sessions being added continually.

We take part in community fundraising events where locals have the opportunity to celebrate the positive influences they can have through these experiences.
