The Macedonian Community Centre is of local architectural significance as a distinctive and unusual modern form and as an interpretation of traditional Macedonian Orthodox church building forms, especially in the octagonal plan and the dramatic canopy element in combination with a landscape setting in a bend of the Kororoit Creek. This impressive community centre is of cultural and social significance, since it represents the strength of the Macedonian community in Melbourne's western suburbs in the 1980s and their efforts to maintain and foster their own cultural identity.
