Just 10 minutes drive from the town of Beaudesert, in the picturesque Scenic Rim, a single crow’s ash tree makes up the stunning dance floor of the Kerry Memorial Hall, built in 1946 by the local farming community to honour those who had sacrificed their lives to fight for their country and the freedom of their fellow Australians.
Traditions of country dances and charity lunches adorned with the most exquisite homemade delights still continue today as the community comes together to keep the hard work of their forebearers alive in this small community. The addition of an outdoor entertaining area has opened up a myriad of possibilities for the future of the hall.
We look forward to welcoming you to our community for this special event. Come along and enjoy the stunning landscape of the Kerry Valley, pathway to The Lost World; endless views of stunning farmland and mountainous country. The country hospitality’s not bad either!
Limited on-site camping will be available or check-out the options for local accommodation at www.thelostworld.com.au
Festival of Small Halls rolls into Kerry on Thursday, 21 November with Blair Dunlop (ENG) and Hatz Fitz and Cara (AUS).
Festival of Small Halls Kerry will be supported by Annabelle Johnson with Kylie Moss and Nigel Stephens. Annabelle’s infectious personality and smile will draw you in when she steps on stage. From an early age, Annabelle loved to perform beginning to play guitar at the age of 8 she then discovered her passion for singing. At just 13 yrs of age, Annabelle has found a unique style to make any song her own. She is a multi instrumentalist and has a huge future ahead of her.
Annabelle will be supported by two of our favourite locals – Kylie Moss who heads up Griffin County and Nigel Stephens, a local acoustic folk rock artist whose main influence is Paul Kelly. Both are parents at the nearby Darlington State School and are strong supporters of many of our community events.
