Centenary Hall, WA, Pibulmun and Wadandi Country
Centenary Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Pibulmun and Wadandi People.
Originally home to the Pibulmun-Wadandi people and called Geegelup, Bridgetown was gazetted over 150 years ago. It was named, not for its bridge, but for the ship (in the port 100 km north) that took the first shipment of wool from the area. Bridgetown is the heart and soul of the South West of WA, central to many other quirky towns and tourist hot spots. Known also as Fridgetown, the winter capital of WA, Bridgetown is home to rolling green hills, forest outlooks, and the mighty Blackwood River (Goorbilyup). The misty mornings and chilly nights of winter are worth celebrating in this part of the world. Bridgetown is also home to the largest collection of jigsaw puzzles in the southern hemisphere.
Centenary Hall was built in 1988 in recognition of the Bridgetown Agricultural Society’s 100th two day Show. On Showday the Hall is an amazing sight to see and a real hive of activity with competition of products and produce of every description; fruits, vegetables and farm produce, homemade brews, cooking and flowers, home crafts, photography, arts and crafts, children’s classes, displays and school exhibits. Over the years, the Hall has catered for indoor Auctions, Antique Fairs, Weddings, Funerals, Country Music weekends with musicians, bootscooting and dancing, Football Club Windups, private Birthday Parties, Family Reunions, Dungeons and Dragons workshops, Heritage Field Day stalls, Accommodation for the Army and the occasional roller skating enthusiasts.
