The Bank Gallery Space

The Bank is located in the centre of Carnamah, a town and farming community 300 kilometres north of Perth in the Mid West of Western Australia. It was constructed in 1930 as an imposing branch and residence for the Bank of Australasia. However, for most of its life it was used by the Rural & Industries Bank, later renamed Bankwest.

Over the years the inside of the building changed almost entirely. In early 2015 work began to undo these changes and bring back the building’s striking features which had been hidden for several decades. These include pressed tin ceilings, jarrah floors and an octagonal-shaped banking chamber.

The Bank Gallery Space was launched on Sunday 30 April 2017 as part of the Australian Heritage Festival. The opening was patronised by hundreds of people from across the North Midlands in addition to visitors from Geraldton and Perth. Duncan Ord, Director-General of the new Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, officially opened the building. The Bank is an outcome of the North Midlands Project.
