Benaraby, QLD, Byellee, Gooreng Gooreng, Gurang and Taribelang Bunda Country
The Benaraby Progress Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Byellee, Gooreng Gooreng, Gurang and Taribelang Bunda Peoples.
Nestled into the central Queensland village of Benaraby with its grand Lake Awoonga and beautiful Boyne River, the Benaraby Progress Hall has always been a community-run affair. Acting as both creator and caretaker of these four walls and all the memories they hold, the Benaraby Progress Association was established 3rd October 1955. After just 9 months of planning and hard work these hardworking residents of Benaraby showed just what could be achieved with a dream and the mettle to pursue it, with the Benaraby Progress Hall officially opening on the 25th August 1956. Since then, while this classic building has hosted many a school fair, car boot sale, kids activity day and more, it is predominantly filled with spirited dances – mostly enchanting balls.
Festival of Small Halls rolls into Benaraby on Saturday, 13 November, 2021 with Andrea Kirwin and Tullara.
