Kerry, 21 November 2018

Just 10 minutes drive from the town of Beaudesert, in the picturesque Scenic Rim, a single crow’s ash tree makes up the stunning dance floor of the Kerry Memorial Hall, built in 1946 by the local farming community to honour those who had sacrificed their lives to fight for their country and the freedom of their fellow Australians.

Traditions of country dances and charity lunches adorned with the most exquisite homemade delights still continue today as the community comes together to keep the hard work of their forebearers alive in this small community. The addition of an outdoor entertaining area has opened up a myriad of possibilities for the future of the hall.

We look forward to welcoming you to our community for this special event. Come along and enjoy the stunning landscape of the Kerry Valley, pathway to The Lost World; endless views of stunning farmland and mountainous country. The country hospitality’s not bad either!

Limited on-site camping will be available or check-out the options for local accommodation at www.thelostworld.com.au

Doors open 6.30pm

Westbrook, 22 November 2018

Located a short five minute drive southwest of Toowoomba, Westbrook is a cosy country community with strong family values. The Westbrook Hall is no different. Built after World War 1, the hall has been a staple in the township for over ninety years. The hall provides a large comfortable meeting place for all who attend and ample parking. It is often used as the venue for various community classes, community events as well as hosting community meetings. This includes dance classes from Monday – Friday and every second Saturday as well as weekly Sunday morning church services.

The hall has a working kitchen with all the features need to cater for any user of the hall. There are many aspects to the hall that make it unique but the main feature is the war memorial dedicated to all who paid the ultimate price in serving their country. This further reinforces the character of the hall but also of the community and the strong focus on mateship. All-in-all, the Westbrook Hall is one of the most used and loved halls within the Toowoomba Region.

Don’t believe us? Come on down to the Festival of Small Halls concert at Westbrook Hall and enjoy the warm welcoming atmosphere whilst listening to top notch folk music from Australia and around  the world!

Texas, 23 Nov 2018

On paper, Texas has a romantic history that can rival Deadwood. Named after the US land dispute, but in honour of a local one between two brothers and some post-gold rush squatters, Texas earned its stripes with farming, silver mining and tobacco. Driving on the meandering road over the Dumaresq River leading out of Texas, you can have the great pleasure of driving in and out of state lines between Qld and NSW in your search for old tobacco stacks – Texas is also a border town.

Population: 1159

Tickets available online here or locally at the Texas Library.

Texas Memorial Hall stands on land traditionally owned by the Bigambul people.
