leave a comment »

Yesterday, the media was alerted to the imminemt closure of the Mt Buffalo Chalet.

Today (Friday) there were interviews on ABC Radio trying to get to the bottom of it all. The ABC has reported that:

Parks Victoria has officially been informed the future of the historic Mt Buffalo Chalet is under threat.

The chalet’s management says the poor snow season has put its lease of the historic building after summer in doubt.

Regional manager with Parks Victoria Chris Rose will meet with management about its future in coming days.

“We will work very closely with the existing leasee to ensure whatever can be done will be,” he said.

The chalet managers, the Burbank Group have released the following information:

Mount Buffalo Chalet Pty. Ltd. has faced difficult trading conditions over the past 18 months.

As a result of the difficult trading conditions and the need to consider infrastructure and building renovations, we have sought Parks Victoria’s consideration to close operations at the Chalet.

We have previously commissioned the work of one of Melbourne’s most respected architectural company’s to consider options for the renovations of this state significant building.

Mount Buffalo Chalet management will continue to work closely with Parks Victoria to ensure the best outcome for Victoria’s rich cultural heritage and its communities.
