To all the
valued guests and patrons of Em-Te Town
circumstances beyond our control, It is with great regret that
we must announce the closure EMTE-TOWN effective immediately.
Unexpected developments of a personal nature have recently
occurred which prevent the owners from dedicating the time
necessary to effectively manage and operate the facility for the
Em-Te Town has
been put up for sale and now we must work to accelerate the
process so that the new owners will have the opportunity to
re-establish its operations as soon as possible, either in its
present form or as a private retreat.
confirmed event booking for the coming season has been, or will
be, refunded in full. We truly apologise for any inconvenience
this may have caused, however our aim is to allow ample time for
alternate arrangements to be made.
We are truly
thankful to all of our patrons who have given us such great
support over the past nine years. We worked hard to resurrect a
decaying facility from 2008 onwards. We are proud of the many
improvements that have been made since then which have helped
make Em-te Town a truly unique and profitable western themed
resort. All the varying integrated aspects of the Em-Te Town
facilities complement each other to make it a very special place
which has provided so much enjoyment to so many. We are grateful
for the experience. Sadly our tenure has come to an unexpected
end and so we must make room for the next custodian to take over
and hopefully bring this very special place to a new level while
retaining its old west character.
Thank you to the
community of Alder Flats who are very much a part of this town
going back to its original inception. Many have contributed
through employment and other means and have put their heart into
it. We very much appreciate it.
Itís been a
great privilege in hosting all of your weddings, reunions,
camping, daily visits, and special events. Thank you all for
your past support.
