Located 60kms from Melbourne in the Yarra Glen, the Balgownie Estate is an integrated rural-based tourism venture situated in the picturesque Yarra Valley.
Tract coordinated a planning process to achieve the approvals for the conferencing and accommodation facilities in addition to the established winery and restaurant at Balgownie. The ability for Balgownie to expand beyond the existing facilities was limited by the zoning provisions of the Yarra Ranges Planning Scheme.
Tract achieved a planning scheme amendment that underpinned approval for a larger hotel and associated conferencing facilities which is currently being delivered in stages.
This high quality accommodation and range of facilities at Balgownie enhances the tourism offer in the region and further promotes visitation to the Yarra Valley as an important tourism destination.
