The Halcyon difference

Almost 15 years after setting out on this journey, we continue to be passionate about what we do and remain focussed on the future and the many opportunities it holds.

We’re proud to have built a reputation for quality, value, customer service and the ground-breaking innovation that saw us champion many firsts in the over 50s lifestyle sector.

Halcyon was the first over 50s developer to deliver superior energy-rated homes in Australia; the first to use the energy-efficient and environment-sensitive Hebel panelling; the first to achieve a UDIA six-leaf EnviroDevelopment Certification for an Australian retirement project; and currently we are developing Australia’s first over over 50s golf and residential community, Halcyon Greens, overlooking the lush fairways of Gainsborough Greens Golf Course on the Gold Coast.

With so much more to come, we intend to continue as we started: leading and innovating to deliver outstanding lifestyle communities that ensure the next chapter of your Life Begins at Halcyon.

Delivering a Vision

We created Halcyon in 2004 with the ambitious but simple vision of changing the face of retirement living.

Through first-hand professional experience in our respective fields of medicine and law, we realised the traditional retirement living model was not meeting the needs of the modern retiree. It was complex, financially onerous and outdated.

We believed there was a better way and that the modern senior deserved and wanted more from their retirement.

Sensing the industry was ripe for change, we decided to deliver innovative housing solutions for the lifestyle-oriented over 50s.

Since then, Halcyon has established seven communities across South East Queensland while building a reputation for creating superior quality, safe and vibrant lifestyle resort communities.

Our model certainly has struck a chord with the over 50s and we’re proud to say that more than 1,500 people now call a Halcyon community home.

With each new community we strive to do something new, to take the untrodden path in creating homes and communities tailored to the modern retiree.

This is the backbone of Halcyon’s growth and success which has seen us become Australia’s most awarded developer of over 50s communities.

We remain dedicated to innovating and leading the industry and look forward to unveiling new communities across this beautiful coastal region in the years to come.

Let Halcyon change your view of over 50s living.
