Boo Radley's Hall
Boo Radley’s Hall is a small hall dedicated to hosting all forms of arts: live music, painting, and ceramics .
This 90 year old hard wood building once resided adjacent to the Golden Dog Hotel in Glenreagh and served as a storage hall and later temporarily as the pub after the original burnt down.
In 2007 the owners deconstructed this old shed and gradually started the process of building a purpose built 'space' for exhibiting and the arts adjacent to our pottery workshop.
Binding the community through shared inclusion Boo Radley's hosts live music events in the hall and is located at 42 Coramba Street, Glenreagh, New South Wales
Scout’s Falls Swimming Holes
This is an incredibly beautiful and natural spot and the slightly difficult access means that it is much less likely to be crowded than many other swimming holes. Although it’s only about a 20 minute walk, it is a slippery scramble over rocks and along ledges to get to the swimming hole and many parts are overgrown. However, it is well worth the effort and the journey itself becomes a bit of an adventure. The road from Glenreagh is unsealed and can get pretty muddy in wet weather.
