A new future for Strahan's Bond Store

24/08/2018

Strahan’s Bond Store will receive a second lease on life with a $300,000 restoration project followed by an EOI process for a tourism or community development.


Investors have approached the Parks and Wildlife Service about leasing the currently unused late-1800s warehouse and creating a new experience or attraction for locals and visitors alike.


Significant conservation and renovation works have already been completed at the site, with further work scheduled.


This Expression of Interest provides the opportunity to utilise the Bond Store for a variety of uses, provided they are consistent with enhancing the cultural heritage significance of the site.


The Bond Store has played many important roles in the Strahan community since its construction in 1900. It was used as the town’s Drill Hall during World War I and from the 1960s was used as a community hall.


It has the potential to be reinvigorated and regain its status as a significant part of the Strahan community and support more jobs in regional Tasmania.


Submissions must be lodged no later than 9am, Friday 5 October, 2018.
