Neighbourhood House Week, happening across Australia from 8 to 14 May 2023, is a nationwide initiative to celebrate the role of over 1,000 Neighbourhood and Community Houses and Centres.

In New South Wales, Queensland, and Western Australia, it is referred to as Neighbourhood Centre Week, and in South Australia it is referred to as Community Centre Week.
