The Government continues to ensure that the Commonwealth's property portfolio is appropriate to its expected needs and maximises value for taxpayers. 

The Government has been working to find a suitable buyer for its surplus property at 601 Mount Macedon Road, Mt Macedon. 

After a thorough review of the market, the Government has approved the sale of the property to the State of Victoria. 

The property will be used by Emergency Management Victoria as an emergency management and leadership training centre. 

As an important condition of the sale the Mt Macedon Golf Club and the Macedon Ranges Horticultural Society will continue to have access to the golf course on the site for the next 15 years, with an option of a further 15 year extension.
