1 to 3 Bank Street

Three brick buildings, with a covered jetty and a courtyard, stand empty at the northern end of Bank Street. They occupy an exceptionally attractive site on the banks of Blackwattle Bay. Surrounding the internal courtyard, two buildings have two storeys: the third has one. A fully equipped workshop amid carved wooden fittings stands idle.

Whatever their original purpose, these buildings have housed a Handsome Cab Company, a Fishing Trawler Depot, a boat repair business, a meat packing business and, more recently, a fork-lift distributor (Fork-Lift P/L) and a timber sculpture and crafts workshop (Red Cedar Workshop P/L).

Many plans have been developed for community use of these facilities. Each has been stymied by the inability of government agencies to agree.
