AXIS Youth Centre is a safe, supervised, drug and alcohol free recreational space for young people aged 12-25. AXIS Youth Centre is the city's hub of information, entertainment, advice, assistance and referral for all young people in the Queanbeyan-Palerang area.

We would like to meet any and every youth from Queanbeyan and Palerang. If you have not been to the centre before, please drop by and check it out. There will be a program, activity or event for you! You will always find a friendly face and a fun and relaxed environment here.
