Australia’s Crystal Lake resort has closed after almost a decade of operation amid concerns over the effects of COVID-19.
The resort was established in 2000 and opened in 2012.
The resort had been run by the Australian Federal Government since it was founded in 1997 and had operated as a luxury retreat.
The state government, which manages the resort, has been unable to pay the annual rent due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The state government said the resort had operated with the support of the state government and the Commonwealth Government and had been financially supported by local businesses.
However, it said that the Government of Queensland and the Australian Medical Association were unable to secure any additional funding to keep the resort running for another year.
“We have been in discussions with the Australian Government to continue the operation of the resort until we are able to secure additional funding for the resort,” the state said in a statement.
It said that in October 2018 the Government had secured an additional $100 million for the Queensland Government.
“The Queensland Government is in close contact with the Federal Government, and is committed to continuing the operation and funding of the Queensland Gold and Diamond Club,” the statement said.
“In the interim, the Queensland government is undertaking an ongoing assessment of the situation and is providing support to the Queensland community.”
The resort had also had an open call for a new owner to take over the business.
The Australian Federal Police and the Queensland Police Force have stepped in to assist the Queensland and Commonwealth governments in their response to the pandemic, the state confirmed.
