NLV is renowned for its world-class resort facilities
Imagine waking up in the morning to soft sunlight spilling through your window. It’s Saturday, which means there is a Tai Chi class in the Clubhouse. You head over, picking up a few friends along the way. After the session, everyone hangs back for a cup of tea, and you find yourself planning your next holiday while you wonder what to do for the rest of the day.
You could join the group gathering on the bowling green ready for some competition bowls. Some spectators are firing up the barbecues, and soon the smell of bacon and eggs will fill the area as breakfast is served to the gathering crowd.Enquire Now

"It takes a while to familiarise oneself with local customs and I had my fair share of making errors"
In the first six months following my arrival in Australia from the UK (at a tender age of 19), I had learnt a few of the Australian colloquialisms such as arvo, postie, pressie and bring a plate.
It takes a while to familiarise oneself with local customs and I had my fair share of making errors.
One day when out with my husband Syd, I saw a poster with comments about a Polly Farmer.
I naively asked him what type of farmer was a “Polly” one. Syd responded by laughing his head off before telling me he was a footballer. There was more to come.
Returning from our honeymoon, Syd wanted to visit his Uncle Harold who was a wheat and sheep farmer in Arrino, just out of Three Springs.
He was a cheerful, down-to-earth man and I immediately liked him.
Upon entering the house it was obvious that house cleaning was not a priority with Harold. The kitchen was full of tins of fat that he had accumulated over the years from cooking roasts!
"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!
