We are pleased to announce that the Mount Buffalo Chalet Food and Beverage EOI is now live on Buying for Victoria.

Parks Victoria is seeking an engaging, year-round food and beverage proposal which provides a destination for visitors to Mount Buffalo National Park and showcases Victoria’s magnificent produce.

This is a rare opportunity to see your food and beverage vision realised within a Victorian state icon – the Mount Buffalo Chalet. Positioned at the top of the Gorge, the Chalet is a focal point of Mount Buffalo National Park representing the grand history of Australian alpine tourism.

With the surrounding Alpine Shire experiencing growth in both the tourism and property markets throughout recent years, and record-breaking visitation to Mount Buffalo National Park during the summer of 2020/21, this unique opportunity to secure a lease in a National Park presents a chance to position your proposed food and beverage venture to service burgeoning visitation to the area.

With the Chalet reopening for guided tours from December 2021 and new self-contained visitor accommodation due to be constructed in Mount Buffalo National Park by December 2022, a food and beverage activation within the Chalet will have the opportunity to service increasing demand at this extraordinary destination.

An online briefing is scheduled for 2nd March at 6pm, registrations close on 1st March.

Tender closes on 15 April, 2022.
