Welcome to Killabakh!
Killabakh is a small valley located within the beautiful Manning Valley on the mid-north coast of New South Wales, Australia. It runs for approximately 14 kms north and south along the Comboyne Road. The village, which is home to the historic hall, is about midway and still on the sealed road. Just north of the village the road becomes dirt. It leads to a crossing of Killabakh Creek and then begins the climb up a narrow, windy, unsealed road to the top of the Comboyne Plateau.
The hub of Killabakh community centres around the Hall and surrounding grounds. The locals lease the use of the adjacent Schoolhouse from Mid Coast Council. Next to it local volunteers have built an Aussie style entertainment area called 'The Shed". A tennis club and its courts are situated between the Hall and the Fire Shed (the meeting spot for the local volunteer fire fighters). There are permanent picnic amenities and an outdoor toilet available at the Hall for passing folk and for those who wish to come for a day visit.
The Hall and its grounds are overseen by the Killabakh Public Hall Land Managers. The various activities and events are managed by the Killabakh Community Association Inc (KCA). Each community group has their own committees and co-ordinators that are elected annually.
