Wallumbilla is a rural town situated on the Warrego Highway 40km West of Roma. Erected in 1928, The Wallumbilla School of Arts Memorial Hall was built to commemorate those who served in World War I. Since then it has seen many a wild wedding and high-stepping shindig. The hospitality of our small town is as famous as the scones at the Calico Cottage, where even the toughest traveller succumbs to our locals’ delicious wares. Our rural ties remain strong and we still hold the record for the most cattle of one breed (Herefords) sold on one day.

Excerpt from Western Star and Roma Advertiser (Toowoomba, Qld)
31 January 1925.
Committees composed of members of the Show Society, Country Women’s Association, and Returned Soldiers at Wallumbilla organised a day’s sports, stalls, and poster ball for the purpose of raising funds to assist in building a Memorial School of Arts, together with rest rooms for the branch of the C.WA. and Returned Soldiers.
The building of a School of Arts at Wallumbilla will supply a long-felt want. A piece of ground has been set aside for the purpose, and also a piece for the soldiers’ memorial, and prior to Monday the committee had about £100 in hand. It is intended now to build the School of Arts on the ground set aside for the soldiers memorial, to which will be added a rest room for the C.W. Association and a rest room for soldiers.
