The mission of the Bondi Pavilion Community Cultural Centre is to create opportunities and provide facilities for all sections of the community to engage in a range of art and cultural activities as a means of fostering community artistic and cultural development.

The present Bondi Pavilion dates back to 1928 when Waverley Council responded to the community and visitors needs by building the Pavilion and promoting it as "The Playground of the Pacific". Originally the Pavilion housed Turkish baths, a Ballroom, Palm Court and changing sheds in the back courtyard (see history of pavilion for further information).

Bondi Pavilion Community Cultural Centre comprises a theatre, gallery, rehearsal, meeting and function rooms, art workshop, pottery and studios. Bondi Pavilion is the centre for major festivals and hundreds of performances throughout the year. In addition there is a wide array of classes and workshops, with exhibitions changing every fortnight. The Community Cultural Centre hosts youth projects, free Senior Citizens concerts each month and music projects.
