Mt Mee Hall, QLD, Jinibara Country
Mt Mee Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Jinibara People.
A drive up to Mount Mee is likely to be slow, your vehicle crawling along the roads as you crane your neck to try to safely check out the breath-taking views of the Sunshine Coast hinterland. Take in the spectacular panorama of all of the Glass House Mountains, across the blue seas to Moreton Island or into the hazy western ranges, the sky a backdrop to the lazily drifting chimney smoke of the smug locals of this area. Mount Mee was settled into the township recognisable today on the back of red cedar timber getters, who transformed thick forests into the swooping, dipping green tufted hills that give Mount Mee the impression of having been created by a Hollywood set designer for the scene: Perfect Country Drive. It has a church that makes you want to get a married, a restaurant that makes three courses seem like too few, and a community set in a location that makes Brigadoon seem churlish and dull.
Festival of Small Halls returns to Mt Mee on Wednesday, 18 October 2023 with Monique Clare and Shane Pendergast.
Opening the show will be local act Stuart Patterson!
Stuart Patterson is a local to the Mt Mee area, and being a habitué of the famed Woodford Folk Festival, has developed a keen passion for folk music. His musical tools of choice are an acoustic guitar, vocals, and harmonica. He takes pride in utilising this Bob Dylan-esque arrangement to present his interpretation of Western folk music, as well original songs inspired by this centuries-old tradition.
Coffee Van will be set up from 5.00pm. Meals will be available at the Hall from 5.30pm, catered by Mt Mee State School P&C. Home baked sweets and the coffee van will also be available during interval.
