About Us

SMACD building


The St Marys Area Community Development Project (SMACD) is a not for profit community based organisation managed and run by local people.

We are working to improve services and facilities in the St Marys area. Together with others we also organise a range of activities at St Marys and Claremont Meadows Community Centres. We always welcome new ideas and energy.

SMACD provides a variety of classes, groups and activities. These activities range from Tai Chi, Tapestry and other forms of Needle Art, Creative Writing, and a variety of Arts and Crafts programs. See What’s On for the latest activities calendar.

SMACD is located at St Marys Corner – a multipurpose community and cultural precinct in St Marys. It is a dynamic and welcoming place where communities come together to celebrate and share diverse cultures.

St Marys Corner delivers a range of social services and programs. It is also a place where residents and communities can participate in a broad range of cultural initiatives.
