Old Bank Corner is a public space in the heart of the historical town of Maldon.
Old Bank Corner is situated on the corner of High Street and Main Street. Council transformed it into a public space in 2021 to provide a safe, outdoor space for the community to meet during COVID-19 restrictions.
The activation of the space was part of the Maldon Streetscape Revitalisation Project, which was an exciting initiative that rejuvenated the town’s streetscape.
Old Bank Corner became a vibrant outdoor space, and was fitted with trees, bench-style seating, low tables and upcycled planter boxes.
The Salvage Yard, a Castlemaine business, used reclaimed materials for the site, which included locally sourced steel tanks from Baringhup and timber for the Castlemaine–Maldon rail line.
Since its activation, the space has hosted a number of free, family-friendly gigs by local musicians and theatre companies.
In 2021 it was awarded ‘Best Regional Main Street’ in the Mainstreet Australia Awards.
