A PIECE of Gascoyne history is up for sale with the Carnarvon Tavern hitting the market.
As well as being a favourite hangout for locals and tourists, The Troppy’s (as it is affectionately known) was once owned by former Federal minister Wilson Tuckey and was where he allegedly earned the nickname “Ironbar”.
Its other claim to fame is it has the only local bottleshop allowed to open on a Sunday.
The property has about 2136sq m land area with dual street frontage, consists of the large tavern, the drive-thru bottleshop and includes a separate building that is leased to a beautician.
Expressions of interest are being sought by Ray White Commercial’s (WA) Phil Zoiti and Brett Wilkins.
Mr Zoiti said the property would appeal to a tavern operator and the improvements would also be a real drawcard.
“This is a vacant fully-licensed tavern in central Carnarvon with a small income stream from the separate beauty shop,” he said.
“The asset is licensed for 260 people and has two bars, pool tables, DJ booth, dance floor and comes with full kitchen facilities.”
Mr Wilkins said Carnarvon was the major regional centre for the Gascoyne region.
“Carnarvon is a coastal town situated approximately 900 kilometres north of Perth,” he said.
“It lies at the mouth of the Gascoyne River on the Indian Ocean.
“The popular Shark Bay world heritage area lies to the south of the town and the Ningaloo Reef and the popular tourist town of Exmouth lie to the north.”
Expressions of interest close on Thursday 18 July 2019 at 5pm (AWST).
