Australia Hall, Pembroke.559 viewsThe Australia Hall was opened in 1915 for the benefit of the servicemen stationed at Pembroke Barracks. It was erected by the Australian Branch of the British Red Cross Society. The Australia Hall lasted well but closed down in the mid 1990's. A fire destroyed the barrel vaulted roof circa 2000 but the sturdy stone walls survive intact.
