Mallanganee Memorial Hall, NSW, Bundjalung Country
Mallanganee Memorial Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Bundjalung People.
A gateway to the rainforest, Mallanganee is a truly charming little town nestled at the foot of the Mallanganee Range. At the centre of the village stands the Mallanganee Memorial Hall. Beginning as a small hall built in 1912, the building was enlarged in 1919 and 1939, growing to meet the broadening needs of the community, which sustained itself on industries like beef and timber. A great 3 x 7 metre tapestry on the hall’s wall pays tribute to that timber past and two honour rolls have been installed over the years to commemorate those who served in the military, with a meeting room for RSL members featuring photos and memorabilia.
Beyond memorial purposes, this hall has been the entertainment core of Mallanganee since construction, featuring black and white movie projection all the way back in 1926 with the hall serving as a cinema until 1965. In addition to entertainment, this hall has provided education for the community, seeing a variety of trades and skills taught under its roof from dressmaking and millinery in the 1950’s through to computer skills in the 1990’s.
The Mallanganee Memorial Hall has remained an integral part of this small village for over a hundred years, holding several generations worth of competitions, debutante balls, weddings and Christmas concerts, and will continue to serve as the cultural hub for its community and guests when it once again plays host to a guaranteed first class evening with fabulous food and fantastic entertainment for everyone at the Festival of Small Halls!
Festival of Small Halls returns to Mallanganee on Saturday, 11 June 2022 with Ash Bell and Sara Tindley and Melanie Horsnell.
