Accommodation/Tourism for sale
Quorn Caravan Park - Freehold land and business.
Asking price: $1.1m plus stock
Quorn is an historic town located 335km north of Adelaide and is ‘Home of the Pichi Richi Railway’. The old ‘Ghan’ railway line ran through Quorn and Hawker and then on to Alice Springs. A section of this line has been restored by the Pichi Richi Railway Preservation Society who operate steam and diesel trains from March to November. The Railway Society and the Flinders Ranges Visitor Information Centre are co-located in the recently renovated Quorn Railway Station.
The iconic Flinders Ranges is a major South Australian tourism destination offering many camping, bushwalking, cycling and 4WDing opportunities. The stunning landscapes are geologically, historically and culturally significant. Quorn is centrally placed between Conservation and National Parks with the Mawson and Heysen Trails running through the township.
Quorn Caravan Park is located within parklands, a short walk from the town centre and consists of two levels (upper and lower) on 8.25 acres of well-established natural gardens. The park is separated into defined areas providing accommodation options for a single guest up to large groups.
The Vendors have a strong environmental focus and have developed and maintain their park with natural cleaning and gardening practices. A 1.5kW system is connected to the residence and earns grid credits. A 3.75kW solar system is fitted above the reception building to supplement the park electricity requirements. Rainwater tanks have been installed to increase the water holding capacity to 100,000 litres.
The park is fully fenced with a back gate providing convenient walking access to the nearby town oval, a playground, the Community Hall, tennis courts and the showground. The park grounds and the surrounding countryside are ideal for bird watching enthusiasts.
The park is pet friendly with the usual rules about restraint and only in guests’ own accommodation applying. Guests make good use of the free gas BBQ.
