Quorn Town Hall

Beautifully built with locally quarried stone


In 1890, Messrs Moran Bros of Port Augusta signed a contract to build the Quorn town hall. With locally quarried stone, they erected the building beautifully at the corner of Railway Terrace and Seventh Street. Mayor R.W. Foster's wife laid its Italian marble foundation stone.

The town hall, now site 3 along the Quorn Heritage Walk, was opened on the 25th of May 1891. It housed the council office, public reading room and library. However, the size of the hall, as well as the lack of rooms, led to raised concerns and numerous renovations were eventually carried out.

Positioned directly opposite the town's railway station, Quorn town hall has been on the state heritage register since 1984 and is still in use to this day. You can find a produce and craft market held at the hall every fourth Sunday of the month. Baked goods, homemade relishes, chutneys, jams and coffee are available for purchase between 8:30am and 2:30pm on those days.
