Orroroo Memorial Hall, SA, Ngadjuri Country
Orroroo Memorial Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Ngadjuri People.
On the 21st of June 1880 the foundation stone of Orroroo Memorial Hall was laid, and the building opened on the 11th of November 1880. The two-story front section of the building was built in 1893. It was constructed from local bluestone from Pekina Creek and bricks from the brick kiln at Walloway. In 1924 the main hall and stage were enlarged to provide a dress circle and an under-stage dressing room. It’s a substantial building in the town, its classical detailing and architectural qualities pose an important contribution to the main streetscape.
Orroroo is a rural community situated in the foothills of the Flinders Ranges with a population of approximately 610. The town is notable because it is the crossroads of main roads from East to West (Sydney to Perth) and North to South (Adelaide to Darwin). It is situated near Goyder’s Line so the seasons can be unpredictable, but Orroroo remains a very passionate, welcoming and resilient community and is so excited to have the Festival of Small Halls visit us. This vibrant community has a passion for moving forward and keeping the town alive – just wait and see what’s to come in the future!
Festival of Small Halls returns to Orroroo on Friday, 26 August 2022 with Mal Webb and Kylie Morrigan and Chris Tamwoy.
