Named after Edward Alan Hunt, the inspiration for the design of the hall was from Blacket Barn at the Homestead. The huge bolsters supporting the roof are made from Ironbark, dressed with a broadaxe, then morticed together and finally dressed with an adze. Each bolster weighs one tonne and it is estimated that each roof truss weighs four tonnes.
The hall is almost 30 metres long and 18.2 metres wide making it the perfect venue for very large functions and ceremonies, such as graduations, group presentations, exhibitions and seminars, of up to 650 people theatre style.
A fully functioning PA system is available for use as well as a large pull down screen and data projector connections available if required by prior arrangement. A fully equipped kitchen is located immediately behind the hall, also available for hire.
