09 – Coronation Hall & Italo-Australian Club

Edon Street, Yoogali

In 1937 Coronation Hall was built to serve as a venue for social functions held by the Italian community. Located on the adjoining land was the Italo-Australian Club. Started in the same year, the club performed the role of a village osteria where men gathered to talk, drink, play cards and bocce. The club closed after Italy entered the war as an ally of Germany in June 1940. Coronation Hall is now a Sikh Temple.
