THE Murgon Town Hall is getting a facelift.

After it was listed on the Queensland Heritage Register recently the hall is being painted in colours from a early 1900s heritage palette.

South Burnett councillor Kathy Duff said the council was receiving feedback from the community, particularly about the way the new colours make the hall stand out.

"The way all the individual features of the building are being highlighted is fantastic," she said.

"The council has also reallocated some additional funds to enable painting of heritage-listed commercial shops and the clock tower at the same time."

Designed by Brisbane architect Clifford Ernest Plant and constructed in 1938 by Maryborough builder HG Neilsen, the hall and commercial shop prescient was heritage listed last month.

Mayor Wayne Kratzmann said he was impressed with the paint work so far.

"Once it is completed the entire prescient will become a 'must see' for visitors to the South Burnett," he said.
