Rathdowney, 29 September 2023

Rathdowney Memorial Hall, QLD, Mununjali Country

Rathdowney Memorial Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Mununjali People.

Rathdowney Hall is located in the centre of town, along with the store, the information centre and the pub. It has a lively history of local dances, class reunions and community gatherings. Rathdowney has grown from a population of 308 in the 2016 Census to 320 in the 2021 Census. Located in a valley carved by the Logan River, the town is surrounded by the mountains of the Scenic Rim. The Lions Road provides a scenic route from Rathdowney over the hills to our neighbours in Kyogle, NSW. The best shop in town is the Op Shop which also hosts an extensive community book exchange – catering to every kind of reader!

Nicole Kidman danced in our Hall for the filming of Bush Christmas and Bob Brown addressed a packed Hall during the No Dam campaign.  The Hall is over 100 years old and has a lively history of local dances, picture screenings and community gatherings.

Festival of Small Halls rolls into Rathdowney on Friday, 29 September 2023 with Monique Clare and Shane Pendergast.
