Cherry Creek: Building better futures 

Cherry Creek reimagines what a custodial facility can be. 

Set in a picturesque part of Victoria, Cherry Creek is a safe and secure place where young people can work on getting their lives back on track. Their efforts are supported by programs and services backed by world-leading research on rehabilitation.

We want young people to return home with the confidence that they can thrive in their own communities, so the facility is designed to represent a familiar, real-world environment. Instead of larger dormitory-style accommodation, young people at Cherry Creek sleep in smaller four-bed and eight-bed units across different neighbourhoods.

Some of Cherry Creek's other design features include:

  • Enhanced health, mental health and drug and alcohol support, including a dedicated health centre and two mental health units for young people.
  • Purpose-built buildings to deliver programs and education, a recreational centre, and vocational training campus for trade-specific courses.
  • A spiritual and cultural space, for cultural and faith-based programs, including gardens and a yarning circle.
  • Energy-efficient design throughout the precinct, including the use of many recycled materials.
  • Age-appropriate and culturally sensitive accommodation and learning environments.
  • Modern and spacious staff facilities with views of the You Yangs mountain range.
  • Access to on-site parking and staff gym.
