11  2


EOI closing 31 May 2024 unless sold prior

This rare and unparalleled offering comprises not only the property at 36-48 Bowden Street, Castlemaine, situated on 1.73 hectares of residentially zoned land, but also the stunningly transformed museum collection of art, sculpture and curiosity that has been painstakingly curated and installed by one of Australia's most renowned creative couples, David and Yuge Bromley from Bromley & Co.

A re-imagination that pays respect to the wealth of history of the gaol, whilst bringing a new audience to the property to experience an Alice in Wonderland moment of transporting to another world both in time and environment.

This iconic site in the heart of Castlemaine is located a stone's throw from the Castlemaine Railway station which travels directly to Melbourne, as well as all the amenities that the heart of Castlemaine has to offer.

Opened in 1861 and constructed from locally quarried sandstone and granite, the heritage listed Old Castlemaine Gaol has since undergone upgrades to cater to a myriad of uses, including cafe, event space, hotel and tourist attraction.

This is a genuinely unique offering with huge potential to expand and capitalise on the foundations built by the Bromley's within a thriving and growing regional town in Victoria. The first time such a complete and monumental offering has come to market and presents an outstanding opportunity with significant future development upside to the astute and imaginative.
