Sale at the Mount Buffalo Chalet

Monday 28 April, 2014

Parks Victoria invites Mount Buffalo Chalet enthusiasts and collectors to take home their own piece of Chalet memorabilia from a clearing sale of items to be held on site, Sunday, 4 May 2014.

District Manager Ty Caling said work to deliver the Victorian Government’s $7.5 million commitment to restore and re-open the Chalet as a day facility was expected to start later in the year.

“A careful cataloguing and assessment process has been undertaken to identify which of the thousands of moveable items can be kept, sold, donated or stored for re-use when the chalet re-opens.

“The significant heritage pieces have been set aside for use in the restored chalet, but before works can begin we need to find homes for excess items.”

“Items listed for sale on the day include furniture, equipment and collectables to tools, tourism nick-knacks, electrical and sporting goods and paintings.”

Mr Caling said the sale will be well worth the trip for anyone with fond memories of the Mount Buffalo Chalet.

Funds raised will go back into the protection and restoration of the chalet.

Local real estate agents Dickens are running the clearing sale for Parks Victoria. For further information go to: www.dickensrealestate.com.au or call T: 03 5755 1307.
