Lions Village Licola
We would love to welcome you to Licola, at the gateway to the Alpine National Park.
Licola is a small and attractive village beside the Macalister River, 254 kilometres east of Melbourne. See directions below to get there.
We cater for 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 and groceries, maps and other things. There is also a caravan park and bunkhouse.

Lions Youth of the Year
Lions Youth of the Year is designed to encourage, foster and develop leadership in conjunction with other citizenship qualities in our youth, at the age when they are about to enter the fields of employment or higher education, and provides students with the incentive to pay greater attention to the general qualities, so vital in developing our youths into first class citizens. The qualities sought, apart from academic attainments are those of leadership, personality, sportsmanship, public speaking and good citizenship. The students meet in fellowship and have the opportunity of open discussion, exchange of ideas and meet professional people of a community service Club organisation.
Youth of the Year is designed to encourage student interest in leadership and the qualities required to take an active and constructive role in the community. A high level of academic, leadership, sporting, public speaking and citizenship achievement is sought in its potential winners. By emphasising these qualities it hopes to provide outstanding role models for the youth of Australia and an overall increase in the confidence of young men and women.
Lions Youth of the Year is an excellent means of assisting Australia’s youth and promoting the essential role of leadership development and community service organisations in maintaining Australia’s high standard of living.
