As substantial co-investors in our funds, we treat clients capital like our own. Because it is.

Your investment in commercial property is supported by our decades of experience in property trusts. Each trust is built on our values of transparency, professionalism, compliance, and investor-focused results, and each trust is supported by the expertise of our leadership team.

Due Dilligence

Fawkner Property carries out the same due diligence that a prudent individual investor would, for a comparable commercial property.


As well as compliance at the property level, we ensure management of each trust complies with all Australian standards and legislation.

Reliable Income

Each property is chosen for its potential to provide reliable income and a capital gain for investors at least equal to inflation, over the life of the syndicate. Distributions are paid monthly to investors.

Acquisition Process

Fawkner Property develops a strategy for each syndicate and selects properties that meet the strategy.

Active Asset Management

We optimise the financial performance of assets through our hands-on approach to property management and leasing. This includes direct tenant relationships and lease negotiations, ensuring serviceability of facilities, and identifying value-add opportunities.

Aligned Investor Interests

We do not seek to increase Funds under Management (FUM) but prioritise returns to investors. We have no performance fees, ensuring the total income and capital return is delivered to investors. We provide annual summaries on the performance of the trusts to keep our investors updated on their investments.

Our Story

The company was brought to life next to Fawkner Park and was inspired by John Pascoe Fawkner's legacy of integrity and creating wealth through property. Following the global financial crisis, the Fawkner Property team created a funds management company that was focused on delivering positive outcomes to investors through strict compliance and management conservatism.

Fawkner Property was incepted to meet the demands of a change in management in two unlisted Private Property Trusts. The trusts had previously been mismanaged and Fawkner was appointed to uphold a strict level of compliance and manage the trusts through the stresses created by the Global Financial Crisis.
Fawkner was appointed the manager of the then named Private Property Trust 2. On 11 June 2011, the unitholders of Private Property Trust 1 also voted to appoint Fawkner Property as the manager of the trust. Fawkner has since closed these funds delivering outstanding outcomes to unitholders.
Fawkner Property completed its first Roadside Retail fund. Fawkner executives had a long history in the convenience retail sector. This knowledge was able to be translated into long-WALE property trusts focused on delivering consistent reliable income from essential service tenants.
Fawkner Property incepted Private Property Trust 5. The trust commenced with two Caltex anchored roadside retail centres in Victoria which were sold in 2018 to a listed Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT). The sale price reflected a record price in the Highway Service Centre asset class at the time.
Fawkner Property incepted its first regionally focussed real estate fund. The trust focussed on non-discretionary retail with over 80% of the rent from major & mini-major tenants, including two Coles and one Woolworths.
By 2019 Fawkner Property was solidified as one of the market leaders in Roadside Retail and Convenience. Fawkner owns over 110 Mobility, Energy and Convenience Hubs.
Fawkner aggressively pursued the acquisition of non-discretionary retail assets with the contrarian view their performance would remain strong, despite a significant decrease in value and a ubiquitous version to the retail sector
Fawkner sold the final asset in Private Property Trust No.1 to a listed Real Estate Investment Trust on a yield of 4.00% - generating an outstanding return for Fawkner’s earliest investors. The fund has now been wound up.
Fawkner surpassed $1.5 billion in Assets Under Management following the completion of several institutional transactions with major ASX-Listed REITs.
