"A dying town"

Mallala has the best people but absolutely nothing happens there. Locals dont like change it seems. The town is dying and there is no public transport.
Pros

"MALLALA - A little country town with an warm welcoming community"

Mallala is a quaint little farming community known for 'where all the roads meet' surrounded by beautiful farming land. There is always plenty to do!

The local Football club is very inviting as well as the Netball, Cricket, Tennis and Bowls clubs being great family outings for the whole family. The Equestrian Centre has a magnificent indoor arena that has regular shows for the horse enthusiasts and is just out of the town ship as is the local Motor Sport Park regularly hosting state and national events.

Mallala Primary school is situated down Aerodrome Road and has recently had a school gymnasium erected, always plenty of happy kids.
The local Mallala Hotel is the hub of Mallala with a cricket theme running throughout... including the 'pitch' out the back. Fantastic food, coffee, entertainment and where the kegs are said the 'quiver'.

The local Football oval provides shower and toilet facilities (built by the local Lions club) for campers and caravans, only walking distance from the local IGA, take away shop and pub.

Being only 45 minutes from the city, 20 minutes from Galwer and 20 minutes from Port Parham beach known for its large haul of crabs in raking season.

Hope this has helped guys and feel free to ask any questions.
