Koonorigan Hall Trust

Koonorigan Hall Trust

The Koonorigan Hall was built in 1935 by those farmers who chose to graze dairy cattle on the steep slopes of Koonorigan. Over the years the Hall was used as a church, Sunday School, CWA, a place to play housie and euchre, hold dances, kitchen teas and Garden Parties. In the war years women made camouflage nets in the Hall. Life-stylers, together with coffee and macadamia growers have moved in to enjoy the rich red soil and fabulous views. There has been a BBQ at the Koonorigan Hall on the second Friday of the month, for the past 50 years. Come and join us, it’s where we meet.

The Channon Public Hall

The Channon Public Hall

Weddings, Parties, Tennis!

For over 100 years The Channon Public Hall has served as a focal point for the village social activities. Over the years, significant improvements have been made to the Hall with the assistance of Regional Partnerships programmes and Regional and Local Community Infrastructure Programme. Also thanks to you, the local community, for your kind contributions in donations and time spent assisting in these improvements. Last year we were honoured to take part in the Arts Northern Rivers’ If These Halls Could Talk project, a multi-arts project celebrating halls and the role they play in our communities.

Celebrated Australian visual artist Craig Walsh worked within the community to create a work inspired by the stories and people of The Channon Hall and its surrounds. The material gathered at the fabulous Show & Tell event at The Channon Hall last March helped him to shape his work “The Grain” which he presented at a hugely successful gathering in September 2016.

If these Halls could talk project is funded by Arts NSW Regional Partnership funding and Regional Arts NSW Regional Arts Fund. Ultimately we will receive archival material as a result of the project and we will hold further events at The Channon Hall to continue to celebrate our historic hall.

All monies collected at The Shed and at the Gates at The Channon Sunday Craft Market this Sunday will help in the constant maintenance requirements at The Channon Public Hall and will also help the survival of The Channon Tennis Club. Come and visit us at the Shed for fabulous cakes, hot BBQ with vegetarian and gluten free products available.

 

Tuntable Creek Landcare & Tuntable Creek Hall.

Tuntable Creek Landcare & Tuntable Creek Hall.

The Hall has been an important part of the local community for eight decades. It provides a space for school concerts, music nights, public
meetings and parties.

The Hall is currently undergoing major renovations. Termite damage has been removed and affected areas treated. With the help of the State Government, the building’s old timber stumps have been replaced with steel piers and concrete footings. The entrance portico and ramp have been renovated after the depredations of termites and weather.

On Christmas Day a storm blew over a large hoop pine tree adjacent to the Hall. Fortunately, the damage to the building was minor. However, a 22,500 litre tank, installed as a static water supply for firefighting purposes was destroyed. Your donation today will help the Hall Trust in its endeavours to bring this community focal point back into use.


Tuntable Creek Landcare Group is currently supporting landholders with weed control with a particular focus on The Giant Devil’s Fig. We are also involved with regeneration work and the establishment of Koala corridors. Both groups work together to support the community of Tuntable Creek and Beyond.
