The park currently operates as both a Tourist Facility and Vineyard. It covers 39 Acres and is about 150 metres wide by 1000 metres deep. The property is freehold and extends down to the crown land which surrounds Lake Bonney therefore giving what is effectivley direct lake access. Pelican Point Resort was set up by ourselves about 10 years ago and operates as a 'hobby' and lifestyle which we have sought to follow.
The buildings are modern, spacious and numerous, comprising
Undercover parking for 6 vehicles (including a tractor and various implements that are included in the sale) as well as a workshop with a concrete floor
Ample rainwater, mains water and power is onsite and again the infrastructure is only 10 years old
The permit allows for 100 sites but could easily be enlarged, with cabins now being the next logical step
There are several other varieties of grapes which we use for wine making products produced on our property being very popular with our patrons
We also have an extensive and well planted 'kitchen orchard'
A 'Corridors of Green', government assisted project is also the subject of ongoing development at our park.
The property presents the opportunity for an entrepreneur to develop the tourism, winery, vineyard aspects into a variety of rewarding ventures, depending on one's Imagination. The winery could be developed to become a 'Niche' winery.
Meanwhile Lake Bonney particularly at the bottom of the park is in for major redevelopment since it has been confirmed that rare tortoises are breeding in that particular area. It is hoped that a breeding sanctuary will soon be developed in that area. Adelaide University Students are taking an active role in this project.
