Barnawartha Soldiers Memorial Hall, VIC, Dhudhuroa Country
Barnawartha Soldiers Memorial Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Dhudhuroa People.
Thought to be named for the local Indigenous word for ‘tall rushes’ or ‘parting of the storms’ Barnawartha, or Barny as it’s known by locals, is a small township located where the valley meets the plains at Indigo Creek.
Barnawartha Hall is the grand old dame of the town, built in 1921 and described at the time as “a most commodious and imposing structure”.
The site it stands on was given free of charge, and the building was erected entirely by volunteers, so it’s little wonder a century later Barnawartha Hall remains fiercely community owned and operated.
A ten-minute drive along the Hume Freeway from the major regional hubs of Albury-Wodonga, Barnawartha is nestled amongst the heritage gold rush towns of Chiltern, Yackandandah, and Beechworth and the celebrated wine regions of Rutherglen and King Valley.
Festival of Small Halls returns to Barnawartha on Saturday, 9 April 2022 with Jack Carty and Charm of Finches.
Opening the show will be local act Arthur Hull!
Arthur Hull is a local Albury Wodonga performer – singer, pianist, actor and circus artist. At 17, he has a love for jazz and musical theatre with influences from Frank Sinatra to Elvis Presley and Bruno Mars. Arthur won 2 Georgy awards in 2021 and was Rockfest’s best keyboard performance in 2020.
