Glen Aplin Memorial Hall, QLD, Kambuwal, Bundjalung and Gamileroi Country
The Glen Aplin Memorial Hall stands on the intersection of Bundjalung, Kambuwal and Gamileroi Country.
The Glen Aplin Memorial Hall was erected in memory of those from the district who served in World War One and World War Two. Building materials were scarce, but the Glen Aplin community volunteers worked with ingenuity and persistence to make bricks with sand from the nearby Severn River.
In 1953, the Hall was opened with a Gala Ball attracting people from far and wide to celebrate and try out the dance floor – the largest on the Granite Belt at that time. The Gala Ball included prizes for the most charmingly dressed lady, the most original fan, the most colourful tie, and a balloon waltz!
Since then, the Hall has continued to host many community celebrations, weddings, wakes, markets and dances along with sporting and social activities. In later years, many improvements have been added to maintain relevance for current times including, wheelchair access, refurbished kitchen and amenities, replacement of electrical wiring, a new roof and rendering of the exterior. The Glen Aplin Queensland Country Women’s Association has always been, and remains, a valuable and integral part of the facility.
