History of Chiltern's former Bank of Australasia - The former Chiltern branch of the Bank of Australasia was built c.1879 and designed by Anketell Henderson of the prolific Melbourne architects, Reed and Barnes and constructed on land sold by the Crown in 1861.

The former Bank of Australasia comprises a banking chamber and an attached residence. The single-storey brick building is designed in a conservative classical style with a three-bay facade articulated by a trabeated system of Tuscan pilasters and entablature. The latter contains the original Bank of Australasia sign. Three round-headed openings with prominent keystones are contained within the bays, with the entrance located at one end. A colonnaded parapet with decorative urns originally sat at the top of the facade. The Chiltern branch of the Bank of Australasia ceased operating in 1943 and the building was sold.The branch at Chiltern is a simple example of their conservative classical style.
