Facilities & Equipment

Hall capacity & layout

The Cooran Hall has maintained its original character from 1906. It comprises a central hall area for 200 seats, an adjacent open dining area, a separate professional-grade kitchen. It has a traditional stage with red velvet curtains that you’ll want to swing on (but we won’t let you) and a smaller moveable stage.

Kitted-out kitchen & crockery

Cooran Hall kitchen is a professional-grade stainless steel fit out with ample room, large fridges, ovens, cookers and deep sinks. It has a servery counter adjoining the dining area and is ideal for catering during events and for food prep. A 100 piece crockery set is available for separate hire ($3pp), Tea Setting ($1.50pp), Cutlery Dinner Service ($1pp).

What's the dirt on the loos?

A trick question… There is no dirt on the loos! They are sparkling clean like the rest of the hall thanks to Rob and our respectful hall users. Toilets are refurbished, and good to go (pardon the pun) and include two mens, three ladies and a separate disabled access toilet.
