About Us


Khandallah Town Hall has served the Khandallah community for more than 100 years. It provides residents with a space to gather, create, entertain and debate.


The Khandallah Town Hall is administered by the Khandallah Cornerstone Resource Centre Trust.

The Trust was established in 1983 to set up and run a community centre to serve the Khandallah community. The Cornerstone Community Centre operated for nearly thirty years from premises located at 2 Ganges Road.

Extensive modernisation and restoration was carried out on the Khandallah Town Hall which was completed in August 2011. On completion of the upgrade Cornerstone moved in to continue its work and to manage the Khandallah Town Hall under a memorandum of understanding with the Wellington City Council.
