The wedding can be held in the historic St James Church and the guests can then move a short distance to the reception area within the grounds of the museum.

The Museum can also cater for christenings, social functions, child care groups, arts classes and many other social groups as well as seminars and workshops for your commercial and not for profit organisation.

St James Church

This is the oldest church in the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area, built in 1907 on the property "The Cliffs" between Yoogali and Bilbul. It was later moved in 1913 to what is now known as Hanwood, by placing it on large pine logs which acted as a sled, pulled by a steam traction engine.

The first service in the relocated church was held around September 1913. Fifty eight years later, on Sunday, 16th May 1971, Archdeacon Victor Twigg conducted the last service.

The church was relocated to its present position in June 1971. Today the church is used as a focal point for commemorative services, marriages, christenings and other special events.

The church can be hired in conjunction with Myall Park Hall, or why not take advantage of the natural bush surrounds and have your reception at one of the outdoor areas located within the park.
