Breamlea General Store EOI now open

In April 2022 the management of the Breamlea coastal reserves transferred from the City of Greater Geelong to Barwon Coast Committee of Management Inc. (Barwon Coast). This includes the management of the Breamlea Caravan Park and the on-site Breamlea General Store.

Barwon Coast is committed to balancing community benefit with responsible management of our resources. Following over 18 months of operation, Barwon Coast has found that the current operating model is not financially viable. We are reviewing options to change the service model; we believe the right operator and business proposition could be more financially sustainable while continuing to provide a valuable service to the local community, campers and visitors.

To ensure we investigate all potential options for the General Store, alongside our consultation to determine community ideas and priorities, we are seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) from suitably experienced people/businesses to lease the Breamlea General Store building.

This EOI process will provide Barwon Coast with an understanding of the vision, capability and experience of people who are interested in operating the shop.


The EOI will close on Monday 26 February, and we expect to notify applicants of the outcome in March 2024.
