Orange Heritage Trail


Dalton St & Clinton St, Orange

Orange’s Ukrainian community constructed this hall so that they could hold dances and other social functions. Recorded or live music added to the occasion and the events were so popular that they attracted people from throughout Orange and beyond. Australians were welcome also and some helped provide live music. The building later became the headquarters of the Orange Aboriginal Lands Council.

Other venues which attracted particular migrant groups included the Orange Lutheran Church in Heatherbrae Parade, a house in Woodward Street which held regular services according to the rites of the Dutch Reformed Church, a hall at Clergate largely used by the Italian community, and later, a hall in McNamara Street which is still used as a religious and social venue for Orange’s Greek community.
