Uki is a village of 700 people located near to Mount Warning in the Tweed region, 800km from Sydney.

Uki School of Arts and Mechanics’ Institute dates from 1904. Today it is known as the Uki Public Hall and Recreation Reserve. It is a very active community resource that serves a full range of cultural, social, educational and recreational functions including a farmers’ market each Saturday.

At end of the First World War, the Uki Branch of the MUIOOF [the Manchester United Independent Order of Odd Fellows], which held it meetings at the School, installed a memorial to honour those local members of the Lodge who had served in the War. The memorial is a very fine cedar and copper Roll of Honour.
