Port MacDonnell Waterfront - Mixed Use Tourism Investment Opportunity
Port MacDonnell is located halfway between Adelaide and Melbourne overlooking the Southern Ocean. Mount Gambier is South Australia's largest regional city which is located 20 minutes to the north and is serviced by a recently upgraded airport.
Local tourism includes chartered fishing operations, remote beaches, cave system exploration, the Umpherston Sunken Gardens, the Blue Lakes and seafood and wine experiences.
Recent tourism investment announcements include the unveiling of world famous Kilsby Sinkhole facilities and gin distillery. Recreational divers have now the opportunity to dive the renowned 60 meter deep limestone cavity in crystal clear waters.
The District Council of Grant is seeking Expressions of Interest discussions with private investors to partner within a mixed use waterfront development.
Potential exists for tourism focused, hospitality, retail and quality accommodation offerings that contribute to the long term benefit and attractiveness of Port MacDonnell.
The 3,066 square meter site sits on the promenade forming a natural town centre location and overlooks the recently completed $2.1 million "The Waterfront" foreshore development. Covering four titles and with three frontages the site is ready for development with "Town Centre" zoning. Council is seeking development which complements the heritage listed two storey 'Customs House' bed and breakfast located on the adjacent Sea Parade corner.
Partnerships with the District Council of Grant as owners may include land transactions with an agreement which encourages a quality development for the landmark site.
