Get Out & About
Balwyn Evergreen Centre has a variety of transport options to suit all needs.
Never miss an outing or shopping trip – with our regular bus service. Make chores more fun with likeminded friends, by hopping aboard our weekly shopping trips every Monday that pick you up from home and take you to the local Woolworths. You can enjoy doing your shopping independently, have a coffee with friends and then we’ll drop you home and help you unload your groceries.
We also offer convenient daily shuttle service to/from Balwyn Evergreen Centre’s activity sessions. Our friendly volunteers will help you hop on board, drive you to the centre and then take you home.
Meet friends and get out and about to explore the city’s culture or go further afield to the great outdoors with two of our adventurous groups: the Evergreen Ramblers, departing every Tuesday, and the Evergreen Explorers, departing fortnightly on Thursday.
Each Monday, our Shopping Bus picks you up from your doorstep and drops you off right by Woolworths Balwyn.
After shopping, enjoy a chat and a cup of coffee at Polly or finish off the rest of your errands for the week.
Our driver will assist in carrying your groceries to and from the bus if needed.
