Drayton Memorial Hall, QLD, Jagera, Giabal and Jarowair Country
Drayton Memorial Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Jagera, Giabal and Jarowair People.
Drayton began as a camping place at the intersection of various pastoral stations in 1842. The European settler Thomas Alford, named his house, store and post office Drayton, which then became the name of the emergent township of Drayton. Drayton Hall is situated 300 metres from an early landmark, the Bulls Head Inn built in 1847, with the hall originally being a pioneers memorial hall built prior to WW1. The Guide Hut located next to the hall was built in memory of Korean War servicemen. Throughout the years, the Drayton Hall has been used as the Drayton Shire office, a dance hall of some note in the region and continues its community service housing the Toowoomba Municipal Band and the Caledonian Pipe Band, as well as many community organisations using the facility throughout the week.
