Hiring the Turner Scout Hall

Our Scout Hall is the beautifully painted brick building near the centre of Canberra, in Turner. We are located in the lovely heritage listed Haig Park.

The hall has a sprung wooden floor (12 x 6.7m), a kitchen, separate men’s and women’s washrooms (each including a junior toilet as well), a fenced playground, a fire place, an office, break-out meeting room, large foyer/cloakroom, two fridges, and storage facilities.

Typical uses of our hall are: dance, yoga, meditation, drama, role-playing games, club meetings, church, and our many children’s language groups.

The Scout Hall is available for responsible clubs to hire on a regular basis. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate private birthday parties or functions due to personal liability insurance restrictions.  Please also note that the venue is alcohol free.

The hall is a licensed Children’s Service facility.

You can also have a Google Street View tour inside the hall! (Start in the playground and go in through the red doors to explore inside the hall.)
