Lexton Public Hall, VIC, Dja Dja Wurung Country
Lexton Public Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Dja Dja Wurung People.
On 6 December 1894 the town held a public meeting to look into creating a public hall for Lexton. They purchased the Doctors Creek School and moved it to Lexton to use as the hall in 1899. Over the years it has been the venue for everything from Roller Skating Carnivals in the first two decades of the twentieth century to Lexton’s first moving picture show which was about the Boer War; Saturday night dances, the annual round of Balls, and special occasions such as anniversaries of Community groups and Horticultural Shows. The Infant Health Centre also operated from one of the ante-rooms, having opened in 1958. It has seen dances, engagements, birthday and anniversaries parties. Regular events like Cuppa with a Councillor, movie nights, auctions and BBQs are held in the hall.
Festival of Small Halls rolls into Lexton on Wednesday, 13 March 2024 with Svavar Knútur and The Maes.
