OPEN DOORS // Goologong Log Cabin Hall

We know people LOVE a sticky beak inside beautiful old halls and cool venues. Over the coming months we’ll be profiling some of the treasures – and great potential arts venues – of our region, via our socials.

First up: we take you to the GOOLOOGONG LOG CABIN HALL.
You’ll find it about 35 kilometres west of Cowra. The Gooloogong Log Cabin, built in 1937 and officially opened on January 26, 1938, was constructed using locally-sourced timber logs. It has undergone major restoration in recent years. It currently hosts an annual Esky Ball (a seated meal for 330 with dancing into the night), an annual Literary Lunch (which has grown each year), an annual community Christmas in the Cabin dinner, weddings and other small events. They’ve hosted top musical acts in recent times too.

Paula from the committee says: “We would love to bring theatre and the arts and other interesting functions to the venue and the community. The hall sits within the Parkes, Forbes, Cowra, Canowindra area, is about an hour from Orange and Young and a bit more to Bathurst, so there is a substantial area to draw the crowds from, not forgetting that we have attendees from Sydney and beyond for our literary lunches and Esky Ball – people who know the hall love it, and are repeat attendees simply for the atmosphere!”
The Gooloogong Log Cabin Hall is managed by a dedicated local, not for profit committee.
