Dunrobin Public Hall, VIC, Gunditjamara Country
Dunrobin Public Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Gunditjamara People.
Built for £260 in 1914 in the picturesque pastoral settlement of Dunrobin in south-western Victoria, the Dunrobin Public Hall was built as a meeting place for residents and started life as the Dunrobin Mechanic’s Hall. The build required some community fundraising, a challenge accepted by some of the ladies of Dunrobin who held a fete in order to supplement the Hall Building Fund, which was followed soon after by a social and dance to raise money for a piano. In those early years the hall played host to a wide range of events including lectures on farm management and forums on drought to ‘plain and fancy dress’ balls. More than a century later, the hall is still the hub of community activities, opening its doors to residents of the Glenelg Shire old and new, and always with a smile.

A BBQ and snack plates will be available at the Hall from 6.00pm. Sweet plates and tea/coffee will be available in the interval.
