Briar Hill Community Hall, 126 Mountain View Road, Briar Hill,  (just North of the Sherbourne Rd / Mountain View Rd intersection), Melway map ref. 21-C3

The large hall and surrounding grounds open up a range of activities including radio classes, promotion of  amateur radio, and collaboration with the community.  This is one of Banyule Council's halls with a large seating capacity, a modern kitchen with catering facilities, and new gas heating and evaporative cooling systems.  A level car park and no steps makes disabled access very easy from the 126 Mountain View Road car park.  Additional parking is available in Campbell Road behind the hall.

The hall is located on top of the Mountain View Road ridge with excellent VHF/UHF outlook to the East and West.
