5400m2* Premium Waterfront Development Site – Lakes Entrance

‘The Old Slipway’

Entrepreneurial developers have a rare opportunity to create a mixed-use development on premium waterfront land in the thriving East Gippsland tourist town of Lakes Entrance.

Expressions of interest are sought for the entrepreneurial development of a premium waterfront site in Lakes Entrance (S.T.C.A.) under a generous crown lease arrangement.

The East Gippsland Shire Council Mayor, Cr Joe Rettino, said a successful development would provide a seamless integration of innovative, sustainable commercial activities, community sites and open space and reflect the long boating and commercial fishing history associated with the site. There was potential to develop cultural and ecotourism opportunities highlighting the Gippsland Lakes.

“East Gippsland is one of Victoria’s iconic tourist destinations attracting over 1.3 million visitors each year,” Cr Rettino said.

“Whoever develops the Old Slipway is perfectly positioned to take advantage of this, by creating a place that encourages both day- and night-time use, with options such as waterfront eateries, outlets offering fresh seafood and regional produce, tourist-oriented retail sales, galleries, public amenities and open spaces.”

“There are also wonderful water-based opportunities, such as short-stay and itinerant jetty berths to provide access to the town from the water, and safe swimming and wading sites. We want people from both land and water to stop and enjoy the site.”

King & Heath First National is managing an expressions-of-interest campaign, and their managing director Chris Martin said he expected the opportunity to attract an enthusiastic, resourceful and inspired entrepreneur who could see the potential of redeveloping the Old Slipway site into a vibrant new precinct of Lakes Entrance.

“It is rare for such premium land to become available on the shores of the Gippsland Lakes and we anticipate strong interest from developers,” Mr Martin said. “This Old Slipway site provides a one-off opportunity to create a prime visitor destination with the potential to cater to both tourists and locals. There is also an opportunity for the development to extend out into the waterway.”
