It is believed to be the greatest example of recycling in Australian tourism. Wrotham Park Station Lodge, 300 kilometres west of Cairns, was taken apart after being sold to the Indigenous Business Association in November. The job took 28 days. Resort infrastructure including guest cabins, staff quarters, water treatment and sewerage systems, verandahs, awnings AND the bar were saved. The gear was loaded on to 18 triple road trains and transported 2800km to a warehouse in Darwin. The resort will be reassembled on the site of the old Wildman River Lodge, about two hours' drive southeast of Darwin, during the dry season and opened for business next year. Gold Coast-based Anthology, which owns resorts in South Australia and Tasmania, will market and operate the lodge as an eco adventure destination. The resort will sit alongside a billabong renowned for barramundi fishing and crocodiles.
