20 December 2010

The historic Khandallah Town Hall turns 100 in 2012 and to mark the occasion we're going to restore the popular landmark to its former glory.

Construction is due to start in the middle of January - the Council recently approved a $1.075 million contribution to the project.

The project was initiated by the Khandallah Community Forum and Onslow-Western Ward Councillor John Morrison has been a long-time advocate of the project.

The Khandallah Community Forum and the Cornerstone Community Trust are continuing to raise funds for the rest through community grants and public fundraising.

The town hall has been an integral part of Khandallah life ever since it was built in 1912. The major upgrade should enable the building to remain standing for another 100 years. The building's heritage features will be enhanced while adapting it to meet modern needs. The facade will be restored to its original design while the interior will be transformed into a multi-use facility that makes better use of space without compromising the main hall.

The project involves:

  • creating new meeting and activity rooms
  • installing ramp access and lifts to make the building fully accessible
  • new kitchen and toilet facilities
  • relocating the Cornerstone Community Centre to the town hall.

The Khandallah Playgroup will continue to use the basement throughout the restoration project. Work is expected to take about 20 weeks. For more information, go to:
