Villages are planned with privacy in mind
While many Lifestylers love getting involved in the community, there are many who prefer their personal space, in the knowledge that everything is available if they want it.
As such, you’ll be pleased to hear that our homes are designed to make sure you can invite people over and comfortably entertain in the privacy of your own home.
The variety of shared interests means there is a wide range of groups and clubs to choose from, and with the extensive resort facilities at your disposal, you can take up new sporting, artistic or recreational pursuits. The best part is, there’s no pressure to attend any events or join any clubs. And yes, most pets are also welcome!Enquire Now

For those who like to spend time holidaying around the world or exploring the great outdoors with a caravan, we have made getting away incredibly easy – Just lock up your home and leave!
While you are away, our Village Care and Maintenance Team can take care of your garden, and the Village Administration will retrieve your mail. Plus, your home will also always be under the watchful eye of your friendly community …making National Lifestyle Villages the ultimate in Neighbourhood Watch!
"Reminiscing about the 1961 Swan Districts Football Club Premiership"
Reminiscing about the 1961 Swan Districts Football Club Premiership
Swan Districts Football Club had never won a Premiership in the WAFL League Competition. We languished at the bottom end, you could have called us cellar dwellers. However in 1957 the WAFL introduced an extra competitive team into the structure. So now all clubs had a League, Reserves and Thirds team, the last being in the 18-20 years bracket. This enabled the clubs to have access to nurture and improve the football ability of up-and-coming players. Swans were the Thirds competition inaugural Premiers in 1957 and again in 1958 which gave the club a little hope for the future.
In 1960, Haydn Bunton, a South Australian, was elected League Coach. From the outset it was obvious that there would be a massive shake up. The placid Black Swan club emblem was ditched, and replaced by the fierce, black fighting one. Training began in the hot summer months at weekends as well as mid-week. Weekends were up and down sand hills at Scarborough through to Trigg and mid-week around the Swan River, swimming across it, and of course, on the oval. Blood, sweat and plenty of tears!
Lyn and Bob
We were in Wanneroo and we wanted to downsize. We have got a big van and we were looking for a sea change – and my twin daughters are in Bunbury. We did all the research and looked at the Joondalup and Mandurah villages. We looked at putting a park home on caravan parks, but they have not got the security.
Here we can go away and not have to worry. We had alarms in Perth, but you still panic a bit when you go away. It’s the neighbours here that are great and that are always looking out for you. And with a house in other places, for insurance you have to be in it for a number of months of the year, or you have to get a house-sitter. Our house in Perth sold very quickly and it freed up some money, although Bob is still working. We also needed an area for the caravan, which we have got and it is secure.
The village has a nice community feeling. The neighbours are excellent, which isn’t always the case in the suburbs. We have had friends go into the Joondalup village and they couldn’t believe the social life. We have morning teas for the ladies, we are knitting for charity and we have got a bus. The village management here are like family – they really are.
