EA Hunt Hall

Named after Edward Alan Hunt, the inspiration for the design of the Hall was the Blacket barn at the Homestead.

The bolsters supporting the roof are constructed from five pieces of ironbark, dressed with a broadaxe, then morticed together and finally dressed with an adze.

Each bolster weighs one tonne and it is estimated that each roof truss weighs four tonnes and that there is 64 tonnes of tiles on the roof. The Hall cladding and bracing is Blackbutt and the floor is Brush Box.
