Covid-19 Directives

(updated 31Mar21)

The SA Government Emergency Management (Public Activities No 21) (COVID-19) Direction 2021 came into effect on 31st March 2021.  This COVID-19 declaration restricts private activities at the One Tree Hill Institute.  The venue is available for private function bookings of up to 195 people, with internal room restrictions of 93 in the old hall and 102 in the new hall.   The kitchen/servery area is restricted to a maximum of 46 people; however, private functions (an invitation-only event) are limited to a maximum of 200 people.   Density requirements limit the total number of people to 3 persons per square metre.  Physical distancing restrictions mean people need to stay at least 1.5m from other people.  Further requirements are listed in the Emergency Management Direction.  All hall function attendees with a smart-phone/tablet must scan the QR code on entry to the hall or, if they do not have a smart phone, must complete the written record at the door.

A Covid Marshall is required where prescribed operations are conducted; this includes (amongst other things) onsite purchase and consumption of food or beverages (whether occurring in an indoor or outdoor area) and ceremonies.  Hall users conducting any of the prescribed operations must appoint a suitably qualified Covid Marshall to oversee the event in accordance with the Direction. Hirers must provide a copy of the Covid Marshal's training certificate to the Hall Manager before the event/function begins.

All hall hirers will be required to sign a (click here) Liability form (updated 31Mar21) to accept responsibility for conforming to our (click here) COVID-Safe Plan (updated 31Mar21).  All hirers must familiarise themselves with the State government declarations at (click here)

The Institute Hall is regularly hired for private functions such as Weddings, for both the ceremony and the reception, whether it be inside or outside in the lovely gardens.  Other popular choices for the hire of the One Tree Hill Institute are Engagements, Special Birthdays including Children’s Parties, Reunions, Group Meetings and Funeral Wakes.  Children’s Birthdays are very popular, especially since the spacious, sheltered, well-maintained playground is well equipped.  It is also fully enclosed, which ensures that children don’t wander off. There is also plenty of room inside for games and of course for food and your planned entertainment.  The Institute gardens are well maintained and are ideal for group photos for Weddings, Birthdays or any other special occasion.

The two main halls are used on the 1st Saturday of each month for the Country Market. The Institute has been beautifully maintained over the years; the main halls feature lovely timber floors, wrought iron candelabras (in the main hall) and seating for approximately 200 people. Tables and chairs are available for functions.  The fully equipped kitchen is very spacious with a commercial oven, microwave, two pie warmers, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and plenty of bench space for food preparation.

The main hall boasts it’s own very well equipped bar area with servery, a double and a triple glass door fridge and it’s own washing up facilities. There is a fully equipped Audio Visual system (with PA), which is compatible with computers and MP3 players. A microphone is available upon request.  Modern internal rest rooms are available along with a disability toilet and baby change room facilities.   Off street parking is available at the side and rear of the Hall.

The Institute is also available for hire for business, community and work events, such as seminars, meeting, trade shows, etc.  The One Tree Hill Institute offers competitive rates, please ring or email to view the Institute.  You are invited to arrange an inspection of the Institute to see if it will be suitable for your special occasion.    We can help make your next private function a great success.
