Welcome to the Pioneer Hall in Port Chalmers

Pioneer Hall was built in 1939 and donated to the community by a former Mayor. It was cared for by the Dunedin City Council for a long period of time until, in 2007, the Council decided to sell it. The community protested and after many submissions and a petition signed by more than 500 local residents, the hall was handed back to the community in 2008.

The Pioneer Opportunities and Resources Trust (PORT) was established to take responsibility for managing this valuable community asset. The Trust, along with hundreds of volunteers, has spent the last few years cleaning, repairing, painting and improving this heritage listed building.

The Hall has a rich history of community use and we are keen to see this continue and expand.

We offer a tidy, organised and well loved community space that is run by a small team wth a strong community ethic.
