Banners are a great way to promote events, festivals and activities happening in Boroondara to the thousands of workers, residents and visitors who travel to the shopping centre every day.

Banners add interest and visual vibrancy to shopping centres. They attract people to local places and strengthen the area's local identity.

Our banner poles are not available for advertising businesses, goods, services or individuals, nor to market activities such as venue openings, product launches or media announcements.

Our banner poles are located at 2 sites in Ashburton Village:

  • 3 banner poles at High Street, corner of Munro Avenue
  • 5 banner poles at High Street, corner of Morotai Avenue.

You can hire all the banner poles at site 1 and/or site 2. You can't hire an individual banner pole.
