Remember the last time you drove past a building on a road trip somewhere and wondered what it is and why it’s there? It may only be a fleeting thought, but wouldn’t it be good to know the story behind it?
The Milloo Hall is one of those buildings. Situated approximately 40 minutes north of Bendigo in the Campaspe Shire, the Milloo Hall sits in the farmlands and although it looks like place from a bygone era, it is still held in fond regard by the farming families who have been part of the Milloo community for many generations.
Fosterville Gold Mine was recently able to support the Milloo Community to repaint this heritage-listed building in the run up to its 100th year in 2025.
The hall received its new paint job at the end of 2021 and since then the committee has had positive feedback about how much better it looks.
While it was not used much during the pandemic, the building is now springing back to life with the Country Women’s Association of Milloo resuming their regular meetings there and enquiries coming in to hire out the hall for various functions.
