Darlington Mechanics Institute Hall is two halls joined together. The ‘old, old’ Hall circa 1872 was built with a grant to establish a library in the town.  In 1908 a larger hall was built, joining the original hall which had been moved ninety degrees and now serves as the kitchen and a meeting room which is cosy in the winter because it gets the low sun through the windows. The Darlington Hall committee have painted the hall in 2016 and hold events such as movie nights, dances, parties and the Darlington Art Group meets their seven times per year.

The historic township of Malmsbury (Victoria, Australia) grew from a travellers’ stop, on the banks of the Coliban River, on the road from Melbourne to the Mount Alexander Goldfields (Castlemaine District) in the 1850s. Eventually Malmsbury became a gold town itself, but it is also famous for its blue-stone rock which has been used to construct many a historic building. The Town Hall is partially constructed with blue-stone and has served as heart for the town for many years hosting myriad events from weddings, to parties, to school productions, music events, flea markets and more! The hall is now managed and maintained by a committee of locals with support from our local council. Most recent renovations include installation of a commercial kitchen in 2016, and acoustic paneling in the main hall in 2015. Next is restoration of the “supper room” and restoration of the original facade, which was dismantled during WWII.

Kyabram Ton Hall was built in 1895 instigated by the Mechanics’ Institute Committee and was funded by the citizens of Kyabram. The hall was used for local balls and community events. The Kyabram Reform Movement held political meetings at the hall. The hall also was used as the Magistrate’s room, a higher elementary school and a venue for screening movies. Later to become the town library and most recently through negotiation with the Shire of Campaspe the local community rallied to renovate the hall to it’s present status to house the Isobel Harvey collection and three other gallery spaces, one of which is the home of Splinter Contemporary Artists.
