Eukey, 2 September 2021

Eukey Hall, QLD, Kambuwal Country 

The Eukey Hall is situated in a tiny community 16 kilometres south of Stanthorpe in Qld.  

The committee has aptly titled Eukey the ‘Snow Capital of Queensland’, with the area receiving sprinklings of snow in the winter months.   

The Hall turned 100 years old on the 16th July 2021! The Hall’s official opening in 1921 was held with sports in the afternoon and a grand concert and dance at night. Concerts and light entertainment by the locals have been a feature at the hall and are enjoyed by all of the community.  

A celebration of the Centenary of the naming of the town of Eukey was held in 2005 at the Hall with hundreds of past and present residents attending. Many improvements to the hall have been carried out by volunteers of the district over the years. 

Festival of Small Halls heads to Eukey on Thursday 2nd September 2021 with Paddy McHugh (AUS) and Sue Ray (AUS). 

Jack Drake will open the show!  

Jack Drake is a product of the bush who has lived the life he writes about. He has straightened up at the end of eight hours on a shearing board and twisted his handpiece off ready for a well earned beer.

He knows the satisfaction of riding a horse he has bred and broken-in with a saddle he has made himself for a day’s mustering. Like most bush boys, he can handle shoeing tools, fencing gear, carpentry and welding equipment, and turn his hand to any of the hundred and one tasks necessary for survival in the bush.

Jack recites his own works plus other bush favorites, with fire and gusto to the delight of his audiences both old and young. His life long experience with horses, sheep, cattle and all bush things adds a ring of authenticity to his renditions.
