Property Description


An exciting opportunity has arisen for a major development in Apollo Bay with the highly regarded and well known Buchanan property coming onto the market. This property presents a unique opportunity for investors to acquire one of the few remaining large tracts of private land along the Great Ocean Road available for development.

The site is located approximately 3km south west of the Apollo Bay Township and 195 km from Melbourne CBD. Famous Great Ocean road and Twelve Apostles are close by.

Apollo Bay is also serviced by an all weather airport with a short 30 minutes flying time by light aircraft from Melbourne. The airport is located just beyond the southern boundary of the Buchanan property.

Total landholding comprises approx. 252 Acres and located within the identified rural Activity Zone (RAZ). With this zoning in place, a permit can be sought for tourism development of the site.Victoria Government and Local council encourage and are willing to provide with such projects.
