Coopers Creek, located 170 kilometres from Melbourne, is now up for sale, offering buyers a unique opportunity to purchase an entire town.

Expected to sell anywhere between $2.5 million and $3 million, the former mining township settled during Victoria’s gold rush in the 1800s and was purchased by the Holyoak family “bit by bit” from the 1960s onwards.

Set on 11 acres on the Thomson River, Coopers Creek consists of 21 lots ranging in size from 660 square metres to over 12,000 square meters. It includes a fully equipped pub with a pool room, dining area, stage, open fireplaces and a commercial kitchen, as well as a two-bedroom home with a veranda.

Boasting a picturesque backdrop, popular for bushwalkers, 4WD enthusiasts, kayakers, fishermen and horse riders, the sale of Coopers Creek is being headed up by Mason White McDougall.

Director Ian Mason said the sale of the town represents a rare opportunity for investors in Victoria’s real estate market.

“If you have ever wanted to own your own town or be the mayor of your own domain, this is the place for you,” Mr Mason said.

“Whether it’s setting up a tourism business or a desire to live off grid immersed in nature, Coopers Creek offers endless opportunities including a break from city life and a change of scenery in one of Victoria’s most pristine natural environments.

“Like the Rose family in Schitt’s Creek, Coopers Creek could be a life-changing move for the right buyer.”
