Tranquil lake and snow-capped mountains

Goughs Bay Caravan Park, Victoria

The picturesque Victorian high country town of Mansfield was once the centre of Australia’s biggest ever manhunt but now visitors come in search of breathtaking views, mountain air, fishing, water sports and a food lover’s heaven.

Savvy investors are also arriving to cash in on a visitors boom.

Once the scene of a shootout between Ned Kelly and local police in 1878, the Mansfield area, 180 kilometres north-east of Melbourne, has become something of a tourist goldmine as one of Regional Victoria's most loved holiday destinations.

Lake Eildon, offers investors a long lease of 24 years with an opportunity to extend. There is also additional income as a Supagas outlet.

The leasehold is on offer for $1,325,000 and comes with 4.5 hectares with enormous potential in the shadow of the Victorian Alps.

“This is the ultimate tree change,” says Catherine Pigdon of agents Clark & Co. “It’s a potentially life changing opportunity not to be missed. Mansfield has become a very popular tourist area and has wonderful cafes and restaurants.”

Guest reviews for the park are excellent and Ms Pigdon said the majority of guests returned year after year because of the park’s wonderful location and carefree feel.

Ms Pigdon said the caravan park provided 69 permanent privately owned sites paying an annual fee, bringing regular income each year.

There were also nine cabins, 20 powered camping sites available year round, and many non-powered sites, as well as a barbecue area undercover with communal fridge, freezer, table, chairs and a fire pit.

The manager’s house has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a wood heater, split systems and a huge amount of solar panels.

The park’s Red Fin Cafe is equipped with a coffee machine, pizza oven, deep fryer, fridges, freezers, and a big deck where patrons can enjoy karaoke or live bands.

Ms Pigdon said there was also space for expansion, to build more units or boat storage.

“This is the perfect opportunity to escape the city and purchase the lease on an idyllic caravan,” she said.  “Mansfield is really growing and Goughs Bay is a popular place to stay,” she said.

The tranquil waters of Lake Eildon are surrounded by rolling hills at Goughs Bay, while the Delatite River winds past the township on its way to the lake.

Goughs Bay is a stunning destination to begin adventures, whether they be boating, water-skiing, wakeboarding, or sailing.

Anglers can find redfin, golden perch and Murray cod – allegedly up to a metre long! But the Goughs Bay area is best known for its rainbow and brown trout and the locals are only too happy to offer tips on the best fishing spots.

Mountain bikers can also explore trails within the Delatite Arm Revegetation area. Younger riders or beginners can build their confidence and skills at the Fernleigh Farmstay & Bike Park.

Mansfield is the gateway to the Victorian alpine resort of Mount Buller, and it has long been associated with the high-country tradition of alpine grazing.
