EXPRESSIONS of interest are being sought for the Carnarvon Tavern, formerly owned by a Federal Minister, at 12 Camel Lane in the Gascoyne Pilbara Region. It is being sold under instructions of Simon Theobald as liquidator of Symlone Pty Ltd.
The asset, that comes with a dual street frontage 2,136sq m* land area, consists of the large tavern, a drive-thru bottleshop and includes a separate building that’s leased to a beautician.
The property is being jointly marketed and sold by Ray White Commercial (WA) duo Phil Zoiti and Brett Wilkins.
Mr Zoiti said the property would appeal to a tavern operator and the improvements would also be a real drawcard.
“This is a vacant fully-licensed tavern in central Carnarvon with the only bottleshop allowed to open on Sunday and a small income stream from the separate beauty shop,” he said.
“It’s affectionately known as ‘The Troppy’ and has been a long-time favourite hangout for locals and tourists alike. It’s been a part of the Carnarvon history for many years.
“The tavern was once owned by former Federal Minister Mr Wilson Tuckey, where he allegedly earned the nickname of ‘Iron Bar’.
“The asset is licensed for 260 people and has two bars, pool tables, DJ booth, dance floor and comes with full kitchen facilities.”
Mr Wilkins said Carnarvon was the major regional centre for the Gascoyne region of Western Australia.
“Carnarvon is a coastal town situated approximately 900 kilometres north of Perth. It lies at the mouth of the Gascoyne River on the Indian Ocean,” he said.
“The popular Shark Bay world heritage area lies to the south of the town and the Ningaloo Reef and the popular tourist town of Exmouth lie to the north.
“With its world-class natural assets, established key industries, an entrepreneurial business community and innovative new opportunities, the Gascoyne is positioned, geographically, economically and culturally, to capitalise on new economic trends and satisfy the appetite of its communities, investors and foreign markets.”
