Mudgeeraba and Springbrook Memorial Hall is dedicated to those who served.

The Mudgeeraba and Springbrook Memorial Hall was originally built from locally hewn timber in 1922 in memory of those who served in World War One. It was designed by Percy Henman and built by William Brody. Acclaimed as the largest hall on the south coast line it was tragically destroyed by fire on the 23rd April 1993. The new memorial hall proudly provided by the community opened on the 23rd April 1995. A memorial to those who served.

At the opening of the Mudgeeraba Memorial Hall, Mr J. Appel M.L.A .,offered to donate two prizes for the best two essays written by the schoolchildren of the district, the subject being the opening of the Memorial Hall. The prizes, gold medals, have been won by Elizabeth Barton (Mudgeeraba State School) and Jack Gaben (Merrimac State School ). An essay, sent too late for the competition, by Master Rudder of Springbrook was awarded a special prize.
