Algie Hall, VIC, Gunai Kurnai People and Wurundjeri Country
Algie Hall stands in the boundary area of Brayakoolong Clan of the Gunai Kurnai People and the Wurundjeri of the Kulin Nation People.
Nestled among rolling green valleys in the Great Dividing Range foothills, a bit over an hour from Melbourne, Neerim South enjoys stunning views and intriguing sculptures. The Neerim Bower is the towering blue gateway to the district and our town. Population 2,656. Algie Hall Neerim South (previously J. D. Algie Memorial Hall) is named after Jack Algie, last of his Scottish pioneering family in the district. He left a bequest for Neerim South Mechanics’ Institute Hall (1898-1992), the beloved social and cultural centre with its unique façade. Beyond repair, a new hall was built and opened in 1995.
Festival of Small Halls rolls into Neerim South on Friday, 17 March 2023 with Scott Cook and Folk Bitch Trio.
Opening the show will be local act Whiskey River Collective!
Whiskey River Collective is based in Warragul, a nearby regional town. It’s largely a mixed generation family ‘collective’ headed up by Paul Ward (the father). The collective includes 5 members but for the Festival of Small Halls show in Neerim South the group will perform as a duo.
Bar Service will be available at the Hall from 6.30pm, catered by the Hall Committee.
