We recently finished restoring the iconic boatshed in Indented Head, and we are thrilled with the result!
The $50,000 restoration project was important to ensure this Heritage listed building remains here for future generations to enjoy. The restoration also allows local business Beachlea Boat Hire to continue operating out of the shed.
While the works were made necessary due to vandalism attacks throughout 2014, the restoration project gave us the opportunity to give the whole boatshed a facelift, and remove asbestos from the original construction. The restoration has set the benchmark for this popular strip of beach, making it once again a picturesque summer spot for visitors and locals.
We are pleased to be able to work with Beachlea Boat Hire to negotiate a new lease, as we recognise the important service that this local business provides not only to the community but to regular campers and visitors to Indented Head. We are confident this arrangement will be finalised soon.
As with the revenue from our holiday parks, the funds raised through leasing the boat shed will allow us to continue caring for the Bellarine coastline, and undertaking necessary environmental protection and restoration activities.
