Manage your business against some of Australia’s most beautiful backdrops. From bluestone-lined oat mills to cliff-tottering light stations, majestic hill top manors to quaint cafes, Parks Victoria offers some of the most iconic locations and venues for lease and licence opportunities in Australia.

With a balance of community, recreational and commercial prospects, our natural estates offer opportunities for staging events, art spaces, business tenancies, restaurants and cafes, retail spaces, accommodation, education and training and more.

We are looking for innovative entrepreneurs, business owners or experienced operators with a desire to help share the benefits and shape the future of Victoria’s park estate.
