The Main Corner

The Main CornerWHAT MAKES US UNIQUE

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.

Shape the future of The Main Corner complex, help us compile photos and stories from the past and chat about the Main Corner.

Did you know that there are many ghost stories and sightings that have been witnessed in the Institute building and Cave Garden area? We'd love to hear about your encounters! We'd also love to recapture some memories of the wonderful performances within the Old King's Theatre, and are seeking clubs and theatre groups to submit photos that we can have on display.

    We have been compiling stories from locals regarding ghostly sights and sounds. Urban myth or something paranormal? Even the most skeptical person would be left wondering, and we'd love to hear your thoughts and accounts of spooky happenings in the Main Corner, Institute building and Cave Garden...

    Calisthenics performances. Theatre. Concerts. The old King's Theatre was a happening place. I remember going there as a toddler to see a movie with my Nanna, and I'm sure many locals have fond memories of events there too.

    We'd like to try to recapture some of that magic in an exhibition showcasing the grand old King's Theatre in action.

    Post your memories here, and if you have any photos (or even footage!) that you'd be happy to let us duplicate, please contact us at maincorner@mountgambier.sa.gov.au
