Townsville’s most iconic entertainment venue! Melville’s Tavern, Alligator Creek.

Townsville’s most iconic entertainment venue! Melville’s Tavern, Alligator Creek. NOW REDUCED OFFERED TO MARKET VACANT POSSESION WITH NO SUPPORTING FINANCIALS $1.5 MILLION

This iconic location WILL be sold, and just needs its new owner to lead the way into the future.

Craig & Ruth Melville are the driving force behind this unique family owned business which they first started way back in 1986. These humble beginnings have constantly developed to become the now-iconic event centre, known throughout the north. Craig & Ruth’s mobile petting zoo enterprise, itself an extension of Melville’s Tavern, is the direction they have chosen for their future. This leaves the gates open for a new owner to step in and take over, reinvigorate the property and expand the venue. Something this unique will of course require a transition period, which is already well prepared and catered for, ready to implement.

The variety of events on offer at Melville’s is ultimately your income stream, and is as diverse, interesting and abundant as your imagination allows. Just to give you some idea, the venue caters for events like the following :

Rodeo’s, weddings, product launches, teddy bear picnics, music festivals, fairs, markets, lawn mower racing, camel racing, bucks & hens parties, kids parties, school excursions, social club gatherings… The list goes on and on. The venue currently also operates on Friday nights and Sunday afternoons, offering something for everyone.

On the flipside, the potential this property still holds could be better described as overloaded, and endless! Let your imagination run wild, it’s that good. The theme here is Early Australiana, and it fits so well. On the business side of operations, everything is set in motion, with all approvals in place ie; liquor license with outlets approved, irrigation licensing in place, operations manuals & booking systems that are incredibly easy to follow and manage. The whole transition process for a new owner is as smooth and effective as it can possibly be!
