Main Corner Complex

The Main Corner complex is one of the most exciting developments for Mount Gambier in recent times and is a key component of Council's Towards 2015 Vision.

The Main Corner, located at 1 Bay Road is Mount Gambier's newest iconic building and is more than a striking entrance. The building and surrounds offer a wonderful opportunity for visitors and residents alike to learn about our local history and culture.

The Main Corner is open from 10am-5pm daily, and 10am-3pm on Saturday, Sunday and most Public Holidays.  For more information or to enquire about bookings, phone 8721 2563.


Council have developed a theme for the design, construct, display and activities that underpin the entire Main Corner Complex and the role it plays in building community capacity and learning. The fundamental question was "What makes Mount Gambier unique?" The answer lies in our volcano – that one natural phenomenon that created the foundation of Mount Gambier and the fundamental elements of Earth – Fire – Water that emerged from the volcano to bring us life. The elements of Earth – Fire – Water are uniquely Mount Gambier and the building features internal and external displays showcasing these elements. In addition the Cave Garden environment is transformed at night to tell the unique Dreamtime Stories of our indigenous persons. The construction, the displays and the programs and activities ensure that the Main Corner Complex will be alive, adding to the vibrancy of the Garden Square precinct and to the Mount Gambier community.
