The Rowella Community Hall was built as the Presbyterian Church of the Beaconsfield gold field. When the Beaconsfield mine closed in 1917, the church was moved on a bullock dray to its current site on the border of Kayena and Rowella amid the blooming apple and pear orchards. New residents arrived from India, New Zealand, England and Europe and needed a Hall to celebrate their new friendships and historic milestones. The supper room is dedicated to the local veterans of the two world wars. Today the Hall stands at the centre of the verdant wine, salmon and agricultural triangle of the Tamar Valley.
The Hall boasts the fine high-timbered walls of a Federation era church and the acoustics are excellent. For ninety years, it was the home of rural theatre provided by the Rowella Players and later the Rowella Drama Club. There are public and wheelchair accessible toilets and a green room off the Stage for actors and musicians.
The Rowella Community are proud to host the Festival of Small Halls and welcome people from all walks of life, for what is sure to be a fantastic night.
