Benger Hall & Old Benger School 1918

The historic weatherboard Benger Hall and Old School sits at the foothills of the Darling Range with easy access to South Western Highway.

Surrounded by white-fenced equestrian properties, the Old Benger School (1928) is the perfect place to host a function with a difference. Located off South Western Highway, a grass field surrounds this heritage weatherboard property. 

Originally, the local primary school and church, the Hall is surrounded by beautiful lawn areas and white-fenced farming land.

Bookings can be made through the Shire of Harvey.


Land was donated by the Offer family and a public meeting was held in 1907, when it was resolved that a loan for £50 be requested from the Government to build a hall. The loan was accepted, but the hall was not built until 1913.

Cape Lilacs were planted at the front of the hall with pine trees down the side.

The hall was used as a school from 1918 until 1928 when a school was built in another location.

In the early 1950s, electricity came to Benger and in 1952, plans for a new community hall were drawn up. The original hall was demolished in 1959 and replaced in 1960. The new hall was built by the Harvey Road Board and timber from the old hall was purchased by the Harvey Brunswick Football Club to build club rooms in Brunswick.

In the 1990s, the hall was relocated to Cookernup and is currently used as a community facility.
