District 201V5, Victoria, Australia

Licola Wilderness Village

The township of Licola is owned entirely by the Lions Clubs of Victoria. 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 since 1974 have run camps for disadvantaged children and special needs groups, mostly held during the school holidays.

Nunawading Lions have supported Licola since its inception and regularly sponsor disadvantaged children 8 to 11 years old to camps.
