The Bindi Centre was opened in Alice Springs in 1976 as an activity centre for young people with intellectual disabilities from throughout the Northern Territory. In the 1980s the Bindi Centre extended its services to provide supported accommodation in two residential units. The Bindi Centre then became part of a larger program known as Central Australia Supported Accommodation, or casa Central Australia Inc. The Bindi Centre, and casa Central Australia Inc, in 2014 continued to provide a range of accommodation options for people with intellectual disabilities.
