Only a hop, skip and a jump away, you have so much to enjoy with family, friends and your local community. From walking trails, bowls, shopping and dining – you are living amongst everything you need right here at Macquarie Grove.

Here are a few of our local favourites we know you will enjoy!

Picton Bowling Club

Location:  10 Cliffe Street Picton NSW 2571
Phone:  02 4677 1578
Website: http://pictonbowlingclub.com.au/

It’s a gorgeous day outside, too good to waste, so why not pop on your bowling gear with a friend and head on up to Picton Bowling Club, 9km away.  Enjoy the day outside in the fresh air, move about getting active and socialise with friends having a good old laugh.  Who knows, you may make some new ones – sounds like a great time!

Nestled in a picturesque valley, be part of a club that prides themselves on providing the community with a truly enjoyable club, ‘top notch’ lawn bowl facilities, exceptional value and super friendly staff – all for just $6 per year.

With a fantastic range of specials and events, it’s just not about the bowls at this club, so why not relax over lunch with friends.  Chat about the game that was or invite the family to meet you for a feast.  Oh, and don’t feel like driving?  Check out their courtesy bus, available to all on Friday nights!

Tahmoor Inn
Location:  2715 Remembrance Driveway, Tahmoor NSW 2573

Where should we go for our next resident’s dinner?  Oh yes, the Tahmoor Inn, only 5 minutes away from Stockland Macquarie Grove!  A great place for a group catch-up and it has recently been re-built and refurbished.

Why not arrange to meet in Danny’s Bar for a cocktail while waiting for all to arrive, then head on into the spacious bistro (let’s dine outside tonight) and enjoy a scrumptious meal knowing all the produce is selected from your local growers.

Sounds like the perfect night, in the perfect venue with perfect companions to swap stories, catch up, discuss current events or even stay back for a game of cards and coffee to finish off the evening.

Tahmoor Town Centre

Location:  Corner Remembrance Drive & Thirlmere Way Tahmoor NSW 2573
Phone: 02 4683 1386
Website: http://tahmoortowncentre.com.au/

A nice stroll down the road and we have all our essentials at our local, Tahmoor Town Centre. 

Plan a morning out with a fellow resident and kick start your day with a coffee and something sweet at Michel’s Patisserie, then maybe treat yourself to a cut/colour at Rojopelli and sit back and relax with a mag. 

Right, now let’s get a few jobs ticked off your ‘to do’ list. Head to the chemist to fill your script, pay your phone bill at Australia Post and pick up a couple of grocery items from Woolworths.  A bit parched?  Pop into Subway for a nice cold drink and healthy salad roll before strolling back home at your own pace to put your feet up!

Thirlmere Lakes National Park
Location: Thirlmere NSW 2572
Phone: n/a
Website: n/a

Approximately 5km from our village you will find the perfect spot for a relaxing picnic, easy walk surrounded by wonderful birdlife, and a glimpse into locomotive history. That’s right, we are referring to Thirlmere Lakes National Park, part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area.  Plan a day with family/friends in the fresh air and get out and about in the community.

Here’s a great plan – start with a picnic, taking advantage of the free BBQ’s and cook up a feast. Lay back and relax so your lunch can settle, before taking a stroll around the 6km walking track admiring over 140 birds that inhabit the park. Then, take in some of NSW’s rail history with a visit to the restored sandstone heritage pump station – the grandkids will love it! Make sure you finish your day admiring the freshwater lakes that are thought to be over 15 million years old.

This open, leafy setting is yours for the taking for exercise, socialising or just taking a nice breather!
