  The ex London Bank of Australia

The explorers Hume and Hovell passed through the area on their journey to Port Phillip. In their report they noted the extensive grass cover and the potential for grazing. The first settlers arrived in 1834 and by 1845 four stations, including Round Hill and Walla Walla, had been gazetted.
Culcairn's main claim to historical fame concerns the career of bushranger Dan 'Mad Dog' Morgan who terrorised the district from 1862-65.
The building shown here caught my eye, particularly the London Bank of Australia tag. I guarantee it's been some time since they traded in this town!
It's located just over the railway tracks from the hotel also.
