Bannockburn Heart

The Market has now moved to its new, temporary home in the Bannockburn Playgroup carpark, in Byron Street, behind the Bannockburn Cultural Centre. We’ll be in this location for the entire 2019 year while the Bannockburn Heart development is underway, which once completed, will provide us with a permanent home with amazing new facilities!

In response to overwhelming community feedback we’re also introducing some different types of stalls at the Market this year including arts, handcrafted goods and eco-friendly products. We’re anticipating that the addition of these stalls will create more business development opportunities for local people, further retain local spending, promote environmental responsibility and increase the diversity of goods available within Golden Plains Shire.

The Bannockburn Heart is a visionary project that will create a vibrant community space in the centre of Bannockburn that will include a revitalisation the Golden Plains Farmers’ Market site. Market-goers can look forward to a more family-friendly and visually attractive space with a play space, paved plaza, garden beds and much, much more. When complete, stage one will give residents and visitors an allocated space in the heart of town for leisure, family fun, recreation and community events.
Golden Plains Shire Council has secured funding from the Federal and State Governments to assist in funding stage one of this project. Stage one will be a $2.6 million project, and is expected to be completed by December 2019.

Stage two is yet to be funded; it is envisioned stage two will add additional amenities and further enhance the space.
