Narrikup, 16 August 2024

Narrikup Hall, WA, Menang Noongar Country

Narrikup Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Menang Noongar People.

Narrikup is the southernmost townsite in the Shire of Plantagenet, located 17km from Mount Barker and home of the Biggest Cricket Bat in the Southern Hemisphere.  The name ‘Narrikup’ is derived from the Aboriginal name of a nearby brook which is thought to mean ‘place of abundance’.

The Narrikup district has been a significant agricultural and pastoral area since the 1830s and the Hay River siding was an important stopping place after the arrival of the railway in the 1890s. Narrikup townsite was gazetted in 1907 and the Narrikup Hall opened in 1914 to cater for an active and thriving community. It was used as a school from around 1915 – 1944, had major extensions in the early 90ies and now hosts the Narrikup Amateur Theatre Society. The Narrikup Hall is the heart of the community and a popular venue for community and private events and recreational activities. 

Festival of Small Halls rolls into Narrikup on Friday, 16 August 2024 with Jed Parsons (NZ) and Alana Wilkinson (AUS).
