About us


Licola Wilderness Village

Licola is a small and attractive village beside the Macalister River, 254 kilometres east of Melbourne.

We cater for families, school groups, outdoors recreation groups, church groups, sporting groups, individuals, couples and the general public. We are open 7 days a week.

The township of Licola is owned entirely by the Lions Clubs of Victoria and Southern New South Wales. It is the only privately owned town in Victoria and the only one not on mains power.

The town generates its own power, pumps and treats its own water and is responsible for its waste management.

The greater part of the town is occupied by the Licola Wilderness Village, where Lions Clubs have for 40 years run camps for disadvantaged children and special needs groups, mostly held during the school holidays.

Licola Wilderness Village has its own chapel, and weddings are becoming increasingly popular in this unique location.

The town has a General Store where you can buy fuel, groceries, maps and other things.
