A hall commemorates those who have served in the various conflicts in whcih Australia has been involved.

The hall was originally a modest timber building, comprising a rectangular hall with an annexe of small rooms to the west side. 

In the mid 1950s, several schemes were prepared for renovation, which proposed extending the hall further to the east, and adding a new kitchen and committee room to the west side.  The renovated hall was officially opened on 23 July 1957, and it was reported in the local press that 'the crowd was so dense that dancing was almost impossible'.
