The Bendigo Soldiers Memorial Institute is shedding its scaffolding to reveal a new, yet original, colour in all its glory.
The warm sandstone render is what experts believe to be the original colour, which time and regular patch jobs had worn away.
The building’s new look is part of a $4.5 million revitalisation project currently being undertaken. Exterior works have also included a total roof replacement and new sky lights.
More work is being undertaking inside.
The project is being funded by the state and federal governments, the City of Greater Bendigo, the Bendigo RSL and community contributions.
