Kumbia, 11 November 2021

Kumbia Memorial Hall, QLD, Wakka Waaka Country

The Kumbia and District Memorial School of Arts stands on lands traditionally owned by the Wakka Waaka People.

Kumbia is right on the Bunya Highway in the South Burnett region of South East Queensland, and is the last stop before you head up into the Bunya Mountains. It’s known for its stonefruit – but our secret squirrel tip is – try the caperberries! 

Kumbia’s local hall, the Kumbia and District Memorial School of Arts, was built in 1922. First built in memory of the soldiers who not return from WW1 and those who served, it now also honours those of WWII who did not return and, as well as the soldiers of subsequent wars, peace keeping tours and of military service. It holds many sacred memories for those who held it dear. 

Festival of Small Halls is only the warm-up for this spectacular hall – the Kumbia and District Memorial School of Arts will be celebrating its centenary next year with celebrations – and a festival!

Festival of Small Halls rolls into Kumbia on Thursday, 11 November, 2021 with Andrea Kirwin and Tullara.

Opening the show will be local act Richard Hamilton!
