The National Trust has recorded the building as ‘contributing to the heritage of Australia, sufficient interest to warrant recording and preservation is encouraged.’ The much-needed restoration of the building was carried out soon after its acquisition, and its subsequent upkeep has continued in the ensuing years under diligent management of the Wandiligong Public Hall Committee of Management Inc.
Following the restoration and improvements carried out on the building, the hall was once again used for the annual Wandiligong School concert in 1975, even though the kitchen was still work in progress and the supper room not started. The supper room was built out on the south side of the hall and was later demolished in preference to using the downstairs foyer adjoining the kitchen as the dinning room.
More recently the building has undergone a facelift, with the exterior woodwork repainted in the heritage colours of red and cream. New guttering and drainage installed and the ground around the building levelled and top dressed. The main hall floor and stage floor have been oiled, internal brickwork overhauled. New interior blinds fitted and electrical work carried out on the premise. Details of recommended trades people and businesses can be found on our Useful Links page.
Happily, the hall continues to be hired out and used by not only by the Wandiligong Community for local gatherings and celebratory events, but it is also opened to hire to visiting enthusiasts for their varied functions. This is in addition to the Wandiligong Public Hall Craft and Produce Market, which is now a bi-annual event during the autumn and spring festivals, showcasing locally grown produce and handcrafted goods.
