KALANGADOO

Kalangadoo is a very small cross roads town, not that far from Mount Gambier, Millicent and Penola.

Kalangadoo is in the heart of redgum country. The area was originally proclaimed as Kalangadoo East in 1891, and the name changed to Kalangadoo in 1940. The town consists of a general store, a general merchant, a pub and a disused railway station. Pine Forestry is the main local industry.

The Kalangadoo hotel is one of only four remaining businesses in the town is breathing a sigh of relief after the shrinking town’s hotel landlord assured locals the pub would stay open, despite its manager of five years vacating the business last week after a long-term financial struggle.

Kalangadoo has a memorial to the 1983 Ash Wednesday Bush Fires.

The Kalangadoo War Memorial is acknowledged at the cemetery on the eastern edge of the town.

Kalangadoo still has three practicing denominations.

If traveling nearby a trip to the hotel for refreshment would be appreciated.
