Along with Atlantis and Dizzy Lamb Park, El Caballo Blanco was an unforgettable part of Perth’s theme park history.
Opened in 1974 in Wooroloo, the Spanish-style resort became known as the home of the Andalusian horse in Australia and, during the ‘70s and ‘80s, attracted around 250,000 visitors every year.
Tourists and locals came for the dancing horses but also stayed for the chair lift rides and water slides.
As an attraction, El Caballo Blanco closed in 1995, but lived on as an event and conference venue up until about three years ago.
The property has just come on the market.
The 6.5ha site that includes function spaces, equestrian arena, ampitheatre, tennis courts, commercial kitchens, motel units and a currently-empty pool.
The property is being marketed with two lots on offer – the original El Caballo resort complex plus a lifestyle village, which was set up seven years ago, realcommercial.com.au reported.
