Guilderton Community Hall, WA, Yued Country
Guilderton Community Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Yued People.
The Guilderton Community Hall was opened in 2008 and it was built in partnership between the Guilderton Community Association and Shire of Gingin.
The Hall is a busy community hub, located next to the Guilderton Country Club (officially opened in 1971), Guilderton Golf Club and Guilderton Bowls Club.
Weddings, birthdays, community meetings, fundraisers and competitions all take place in this important space.
Guilderton is where the Moore River Estuary meets the ocean. The mouth of the Moore River was originally known as Gabbadah, meaning a mouthful of water. The area has been used by the Yued people for eons, and for general recreation since the earliest days of white settlement in the Gingin district. Around 1905, a 100-acre block at Gabbadah, owned by Henry Brockman, was made a reserve for picnicking and camping. A well and 3 cottages were built in 1907, people were charged one shilling per week for the use of these cottages.
The town of Guilderton was named after the Dutch guilders presumed from the Dutch sailing Ship ‘Vergulde Draeck’ found in sand dunes north of the town in 1931.
The Moore River has a catchment of over 12,000 square kms and its main source is over 200km inland.
Festival of Small Halls rolls into Guilderton on Sunday, 15 May 2022 with Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse and Jack Davies.
Opening the show will be local act Savanah Solomon!
Savanah Solomon is a singer/songwriter from Moore River Western Australia, who’s country upbringing and deep passion for story-telling has led her to become a well- renowned songwriter in Western Australia’s Music Scene.
Savanah’s newest single ‘Rainbow’ is a deeply personal song that showcases her unique storytelling ability, and versatility as an artist. A beautifully crafted fusion of country and blues, Rainbow tells the story of losing someone to suicide – and is a hopeful reminder to anyone that’s struggling that ‘It Takes Rain To Make A Rainbow’.
“If Joni Mitchell and Jewel had a love child, It would be Savanah Solomon” – Rose Parker
