How Did We Begin?

From Then To Now...

The Birchip Business and Learning Centre was established in 1993 with funding from the Telecentre program. It was operated from the Resource Centre building in Sherwood Street with the Birchip Cropping Group.  Over time it evolved into a neighborhood house and adult education centre and the expansion resulted in a move to Cumming Avenue (in the main street).

The Old Shamrock Hotel, which had been delicensed in 1969 and was marked for demolition, was purchased and a committee of interested community members sought funding from the State Governments Partnerships for Growth Fund,  the Buloke Shire, ACFE and the Birchip Community to restore the building. The building now occupies a prominent space in the main street, has a computer training room, office, large dining room for community use and a bar area ideal for meetings and functions.
