Event to manage Yarra Valley Lodge

Yarra Valley Lodge in Victoria is the latest hotel to join the Event Hospitality & Entertainment portfolio, with Grant Fleet appointed as the property’s new general manager.

Less than an hour from the Melbourne CBD, the 102-room Yarra Valley Lodge is located on the grounds of the Heritage Golf & Country Club.

“We are thrilled to bring the Yarra Valley Lodge into the group as we continue to grow our independent hotel network,” said Norman Arundel, Event’s director of hotels and resorts.

“Despite the challenges the tourism and hospitality industry has faced over the last year, we see huge opportunity in the domestic market and believe Yarra Valley Lodge is well positioned to take advantage of this.

“As such we will take a truly local approach celebrating the lodge’s spectacular locale, the region’s quality produce and fine wines and shining a light on the incredible experiences available in the Yarra Valley.”
