What is a Lifestyle Community? 
There are a variety of housing options available to over-50s, ranging from traditional retirement villages to much more independent options for the younger-at-heart. These lifestyle communities – or land lease communities as they are often called – are fast becoming the preferred choice for Australia’s adventurous over-50s . 

What is there to do in a Lifestyle Community?
The Clubhouse is the hub of the lifestyle community, offering indoor/outdoor entertainment options such as a gym, swimming pool, bowling green, pickleball courts, BBQs, kitchen, library, studios, billiards rooms and so much more. It’s where you’ll meet your neighbours, find out what’s happening in the area and is there for you to enjoy as much as you choose.  You can also invite your family and friends to the Clubhouse.

Do I have to be retired to live in a Lifestyle Community?
No! Whether you’re working full-time, an empty-nester, a semi-retiree or simply looking for a fresh start, moving into a Lifestyle Community is the perfect next step for over-50s looking to downsize on housework and upsize on living among like-minded and similar-aged people.
