If you have never been to Upper Lansdowne in NSW (postcode 2430), you are in for a real treat. The hall itself is a lovely, traditional timber building in the middle of the small village at the head of the Lansdowne valley and is located about 30kms north of Taree, or 25kms inland from Coopernook on the Pacific Highway. Full directions are here:
The landscape is spectacular, with majestic volcanic outcrops amid rolling green pastures and lush native vegetation, set against the stunning sandstone backdrop of the Lansdowne Escarpment. It is justly called ‘The Valley of Views’!
(The photo above was taken in Jan 2021 using a drone by local resident David Palmer, looking west from Mount Coxcomb Rd about 6kms from the hall, with a small amount of post-processing applied. Hard to imagine that a lot of it was a black, smouldering mess at the end of 2019!)
Come to one of our events and we promise you’ll have a great time! – You could also become more involved in the local community if you wish – you’ll be made very welcome.
The hall is open on the last Sunday of each month (except December) from 10am till 12 midday.
