Cancelled - Hall Markets

Unfortunately due to the ongoing risks associated with the COVID-19 Delta Strain in the ACT and surrounding regions, Hartley has made the decision to cancel the Hall Markets until further notice.

It is hoped that when infection figures trend downwards, that the Markets will return before Christmas.

The Hall Markets are one of Australia's largest home-made and home grown goods markets.
The markets have a rural theme and are held at the picturesque Hall Village Showground, just ten kilometres north of Canberra.

Barbecues, canteens, live music and other entertainment makes each visit a fun, family day out.
Entry is by a gold coin donation with all proceeds supporting Hartley Lifecare's disability programs and services.

Remembrance Day Commemoration

On 11 November 1918, the guns of the Western Front fell silent after four years of continuous warfare. With their armies retreating and close to collapse, German leaders signed an Armistice, bringing to an end the First World War. From the summer of 1918, the five divisions of the Australian Corps had been at the forefront of the allied advance to victory. Beginning with their stunning success at the battle of Hamel in July, they helped to turn the tide of the war at Amiens in August, followed by the capture of Mont St Quentin and Pèronne, and the breaching of German defences at the Hindenburg Line in September. By early October the exhausted Australians were withdrawn from battle. They had achieved a fighting reputation out of proportion to their numbers, but victory had come at a heavy cost. They suffered almost 48,000 casualties during 1918, including more than 12,000 dead.

In the four years of the war more than 330,000 Australians had served overseas, and more than 60,000 of them had died. The social effects of these losses cast a long shadow over the post war decades.

Each year on this day, the Rotary Club of Hall arranges a commemoration in memory of those who died or suffered in all wars and armed conflicts in the cause of peace, justice and equality of all people.

National Sheep Dog Trials Championships

Sheep Dog Trials are a highly-competitive and challenging sport. Sheep Dog Trials represent a fascinating insight into Australia's rural life with a compelling spectator experience. Sheep Dog Trials are an example of extraordinary team work between dog and handler.

The objectives of the National Sheep Dog Trials are to:
- Promote the welfare of sheep, dogs and humans (and in that order)
- Promote wide human interest in all classes of sheep dogs and to secure proper appreciation and recognition of their place and use in human society and industry; and
- Promote, in every way, the general improvement of the standard, breeding, working and exhibition of sheep dogs.

The Duke of Gloucester Sash was presented to the National Sheep Dog Trial Association in 1945 by His Royal Highness, Prince Henry Duke of Gloucester during his tenure as Governor General of Australia from 1944 to 1947. The Duke was the younger brother of King George 6th and Uncle of Queen Elizabeth 2nd.

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh attended the National Sheep Dog Trial Championships on Finals day, Saturday 26 April 1970 and witnessed the Finals competition. The Queen then presented the Sash to the winner of the National Open Trial, Mr. Bob Ross and his dog Yulong Russ.

Every day of the National Sheep Dog Trials is open to spectators. Entry is $7.50 for adults. Under 16s free entry.
