2020 marks 75 years since the end of the Second World War. To commemorate this important year, the NSW Government interviewed WWII veterans about their experiences. Read our 75th Anniversary Stories.
Built by the soldier settlers in 1926 after the First World War, this hall is approximately 20kms from the Urangeline Peace Hall. For the centenary of Anzac in 2015, it was repaired and dedicated as a memorial. In 2016, the timber honour roll located within the hall was unveiled.
More information on soldiers from the area can be found in local historian Christopher Madden's book, Land Fit for Heroes – the story of the Urangeline Soldier Settlements from 1920.
Centenary of ANZAC - Honour Roll
Erected by the Bidgeema community in grateful thanks to those listed on this roll that served in
the Great War from 1914 - 1918 and became the Soldier Settlers of this district.
May their sacrifice of King and Country live on in the memories of those who now work the land they settled.
This honour roll was funded by the Commonwealth Government ANZAC Centenary Local Grants Program
and unveiled by the Hon. Sussan Ley Member for Farrer, on 24th October 2015.
