PAST EVENT

The Bank

False ceilings and walls have fallen, bricked up fireplaces smashed open and covered pressed tin ceilings re-exposed for the first time in over 40 years.

Come and see the renovated and restored old bank in Carnamah! Opening to the public especially for the Australian Heritage Festival, a special exhibition will be on display in the bank chamber revealing the building’s transformation. Make a day of it and also visit the State heritage-listed Macpherson Homestead and the Carnamah Historical Society & Museum, which will both be open.

The bank was built in 1930 for the Bank of Australasia but closed during the Second World War due to labour shortages. Later it was used by the Rural & Industries Bank (R&I) and then following a name change it became Bankwest for two years before closing in 1996.
