Database Manager on September 07, 2015:

Dismantled, packed and stored by Wakeley Pipe Organs in 2010; from their website: "The Hall and its surrounds are part of the Southbank Cultural Precinct Redevelopment Project, hence the need for the organ to be removed from the auditorium. It is scheduled to return to the Hall, once funds to refurbish and reinstate it have been secured."
