- Caravan Park / Resort
Consisting of 39 acres aproximately 150 metres wide by 1000
metres deep. The property is freehold and extends to crown land which
surrounds Lake Bonney therefore giving direct lake access.
Current buildings include Caretakers Cottage,
Ladies and Gents toilets and showers and a disabled shower and toilet,
Sauna and Massage area, Kiosk, Camp Kitchen, Bar-B-Que area,
Recreation Hall and a small Winery along with a cellar, a Workshop and
under cover parking for 6 vehicles including a tractor.
- Vineyard and Winery
There is a 56,000 kl water allocation which waters
approximately 6 acres of grapes which are contracted to BRL Hardy by
means of a 15 year 'Rolling Contract' and nets approximately $30,000
per annum. There are several varieties of grapes which are used for
winemaking and products produced on the property, being very popular
with our patrons. Wines made on the property are stored in the Cellar
which is also on the property.
- Wildlife Refuge
The whole property is part of the 'Bookmark Biosphere' and was
South Australias 20th wildlife refuge. Meanwhile Lake Bonney 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 santuary will soon be developed. A 'Corridors
of Green', government assisted project is also the subject of ongoing
development at the park.
