The Kellys Plains Public School is a small school that was established in 1863. The school students are now divided into two classes: kindergarten to year 2, and year 3 to year 6.

On 3 February 1883 the Kellys Plains railway station opened and was closed on 20 February 1975.[2] Kellys Plains Post Office opened on 1 April 1884 and closed in 1945.[3]

St John's Anglican Church original timber building was built in 1896 at Kellys Plains and consecrated in 1897. In 1923 it was replaced by the present brick building. Several members of the Perrott family were buried in the churchyard prior to the construction of the 1923 church and their headstones are the only surviving ones.[4]
