ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY! Selected as the site for a sustainable Prison Farm by the Victorian Government in the early 20th Century because of its outstanding water source and rich alluvial soils, this 550 acre (222 ha) property is the premium freehold location on the Island. Surrounded by the 11,000 hectare French Island National Park and with approximately 1.6 km of its own secluded beach frontage and potential to reinstate your own private jetty (S.T.G.A.), this property represents a unique opportunity to enjoy the ultimate private lifestyle only 70 kms from central Melbourne. Alternatively, the existing accommodation with huge commercial kitchen and hotel license could be enhanced and continued as a tourist operation or school camp.

Water is provided by a huge dam on Brella Creek plus two bores and numerous storage tanks. There are four acres of wetland, a 140 acre pine plantation ready for harvest, 3 acres of organic garden, an 1100 metre long airstrip on site, a robust off grid power system with solar panels and generator back up.
Infrastructure remaining from the Prison days includes a guest house that sleeps 30, a commercial kitchen which can cater for 100,
2 additional accommodation blocks sleeping up to 70 each, 2 older style shower blocks/toilets, a three bedroom caretakers residence with bay views,
recreation hall with stage and adjacent library room, an abattoir to process beef grow on site, a 9 hole golf course (in need of restoration), Cricket ground and much more.

For Sale as a going concern with opportunity to enter into separate contact for business which would include grazing stock, plant and equipment, furniture, a half cabin boat, forward bookings etc.

Current zoning is the highest available on the Island and allows for almost any tourist, religious or educational use (S.T.G.A.).
