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

We want to make sure all Victorians feel represented by the department's work. We do this by recruiting a diverse workforce – we welcome people of any gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, disability, and cultural background. We are also committed to the Victorian Government's promise to increase the number of veterans working in the public sector.
