Holyoake Tasmania Inc.


Holyoake’s DRUMBEAT program is a therapeutic program using rhythm which engages alienated young people or those at risk of problematic health and social outcomes due to low academic performance, high school absenteeism, AOD issues, family conflict, anger or criminal activity. DRUMBEAT is delivered to a number of primary and high schools in southern Tasmania.

Holyoake programs are available Monday to Friday, 9.00am to 5.00pm, by appointment only. Holyoake main office is 127 Davey St, Hobart, but many programs are available in outreach locations in Southern Tasmania.
