History of Maling Ward

Maling Ward takes its name from the road beside Canterbury Railway Station which ran through a large property owned by the Logan family.

The area originally had four names due to various subdivisions. Councillor Mercy suggested that long-term Councillor and three-time Mayor, John Butler Maling be honoured in 1899, with a final section renamed in 1908.

The Maling Road part of the Canterbury Shopping Centre slowly became more important than Canterbury Road. By World War I, the two-storey row of shops, a theatre and hall and then the de-licensing of the large Canterbury Hotel increased the area's importance.

The area is now recognised and protected by Council as an important tourist precinct.
