Redevelopment of our Community Hall
What's happened so far?
The furniture has gone, the kitchen emptied, the stage, curtains and lights stored and the doors have closed for the last time before the demolishers move in.
Several of our regular groups are using the Uniting Church Hall in Wheatland Avenue Seacliff while others have found alternative venues or are just going to wait until the new building is ready.
Work should start around the end of June and we hope to be able to move back into a fantastic new building in July 2024. The new building will have a large main hall (same size as in the old building) a smaller hall with accessible toilets, an adjacent courtyard, increased car parking, a modern aesthetic and state of the art equipment plus a fabulous new café with stunning views over the coast, an office, a meeting room and the ability to divide the big hall into two. It will be a wonderful asset for the community.

Where are they now?
Many of the community groups that call the Marino Hall home have temporarily relocated to other premises.
Follow the link below to get the latest information on where they are.
Brews & Views Cafe
The cafe has closed for the duration of the redevelopment but will be looking forward to reopening in the new hall once the project has been completed.
The Marino Book Share has been removed in preparation for the demolition and redevelopment of the hall. In mid-August it will be relocated to the veranda of the old police station on Wheatland Avenue Seacliff – next to the Uniting Church.
