Lavers Hill Public Hall, VIC, Gadabanud Country
Lavers Hill Public Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Gadabanud People.
Built in 1933 on the highest point of the epic Great Ocean Road, Lavers Hill Hall is best seen to be believed.
This is a hall full of love, colour and community art.
Inside, crocheted bunting adorns the ceiling and big, bright paintings by a local artist hang on the walls. Outside, thanks to a 2021 community art project, murals covering the water-tanks celebrate all things Otways – the rocky cliffs, tall trees and ancient plant life of the ranges nearby.
Due to its proximity to so many sites on the Great Ocean Road, Lavers Hill is a favourite among tourist hotspots and indeed all roads lead to Lavers Hill – the town of less than 100 is at the meeting point of the roads to Colac, Cobden, Apollo Bay and Port Campbell.
Festival of Small Halls rolls into Lavers Hill on Sunday, 27 March 2022 with Jack Carty and Charm of Finches.
Opening the show will be local act Peter Newnham!

He has taught classical guitar to people from as young as 4, as well as adult groups with members in their 70s.

Peter will be joined on stage by up and coming young students, Claire Dance (Lavers Hill College) and Tess Neal (Apollo Bay College).
