For over 30 years the Burnie Brae Centre has sought to build strong community connections by providing quality health, lifestyle and care services to their clients and members.
Burnie Brae Centre is a Not-for-Profit Incorporated Organisation that opened in Chermside in March, 1984. What started as a small membership-based social centre rapidly grew into the multifaceted centre standing today. Currently, Burnie Brae provides services to more than 9,000 individuals, with aged care services remaining at its core.
