I worked at Kaniva for a short period in the early 1980’s so was keen to revisit the town as I enjoyed my time there. I was quite surprised driving in from South Australia as the town was buzzing with people. My memory was telling me it was a very quiet little town but the amount of cars parked in the main street was very different to my recollection.
The building I worked in (CBC Bank), which originally housed the Bank of Victoria is now vacant. When I worked in Kaniva I stayed at the Club Hotel. Sadly the hotel now doesn’t open until 5pm so I couldn’t even go in to have a look. The other hotel in town, The Commercial opens daily at 4pm. Wonder how the local farmers feel not being able to get a counter meal for lunch when they come into town.
