Invitation for Expression of Interest

Lake Cullulleraine Caravan Park and RSL Holiday Camp

Mildura Rural City Council (MRCC) is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) submissions from interested parties to enter into a lease agreement for the on-going operation of the Lake Cullulleraine Caravan Park and RSL Holiday Camp.  All applications will be considered for either or both the facilities.

MRCC is seeking innovative and experienced operators to provide high quality service, management, development and maintenance of the existing Caravan Park and RSL Camp.  MRCC is looking for operators who can provide affordable, secure, sustainable and presentable caravan park facilities appropriate to the location.

The Lake Cullulleraine Caravan Park is located approximately 55 kilometres west of the township of Mildura, in a picturesque location on the foreshore of Lake Cullulleraine.  The property covers an area of approximately 1.9ha and currently features 64 powered sites and 20 unpowered sites.  The RSL Holiday Camp facility offers dormitory-style accommodation and sleeps up to 100 people.  There is also an office, amenities and laundry facilities.

Capital investment will be required to realise the full potential of this beautiful location and business opportunity.  Council and the successful applicant will need to reach agreement on a program of works to be undertaken to improve services and facilities and this should be considered as part of the EOI.

The property is located on Crown land, reserved under the Crown Land (Reserves) Act 1978 (Vic) (CLRA).  MRCC is the Committee of Management of the Premises, and has the power to grant a lease for up to 21 years under section 17D of the CLRA, with the lease fee and terms to be negotiated with consideration given to the Leasing Policy for Victorian Crown Land (2018).  The subject land is part of Crown allotment 30 Parish of Mullroo, which was permanently reserved for Public Recreation and Camping by Order in Council dated 8 August 1967, and gazetted 16 August 1967.
