Pimpama: From Farmland To Boom Town

17 August 2018 | by Halcyon

A VIBRANT, connected and service-rich location is the backdrop for every Halcyon community, and the site of our latest project, Halcyon Greens at Pimpama, epitomises this philosophy.

While this spectacular 500-home community is surrounded by lush golf course fairways and a beautiful wetland conservation zone, it also sits at the heart of the Gold Coast’s latest boom town.

Located just east of the M1 and immediately north of Coomera, Pimpama was once a sleepy rural area dotted with farms and acreage properties.

Thanks to the meteoric rise of neighbouring Coomera and the city’s burgeoning population, Pimpama is firmly on the radars of government ...

How do I sell when it’s time to leave?

17 August 2018 | by Halcyon

Within our 7 Halcyon communities there are more then 1,000 homes which means we don’t just sell new homes, we sell established.

While we love welcoming new home owners to Halcyon, the beauty of our model is that you are free to move on at any time if you change your mind or if your circumstances change.

That’s life. Things happen and people find they need or want to move on. It may be deteriorating health, the desire to be closer to your family or simply time for a change.

Whatever the reason, Halcyon is here to help you take that ...

Sorting out the care factor

17 August 2018 | by Halcyon

The days of going straight into aged care if you can’t quite manage things at home on your own are gone.

The path into full-time residential care now is a much longer one, with the Federal Government focussed on encouraging older Australians to stay in their homes longer and to “age in place”.

Halcyon project director of established communities Karen Carey, who has more than 30 years’ experience in the aged care sector, said the Australian Government is pouring significant resources into helping people to age in place.

This includes the funding of various levels of in-home care services such as housekeeping, home ...

Vision Honours The Maugers' Magnificent Life

17 August 2018 | by Halcyon

HOME owners at Vision by Halcyon have gained a personal insight into the amazing life of their neighbour Raye Mauger, the wife of six-time world champion motorcycle speedway rider and sporting legend Ivan.

The couple’s incredible journey from regional New Zealand in the 1950s to a rock star-like lifestyle on Europe’s lucrative speedway circuit in the 70s was the focus of the Social Group dinner at the Rec Club in March.

After moving to Vision a year ago, Raye wanted to donate a copy of Ivan’s autobiography The Will To Win to the community’s library.

“I thought it would give other home owners ...

Rules for community living – why we have rules?

17 August 2018 | by Halcyon

Integral to the fun, friendship and freedom of the Halcyon lifestyle, is mutual trust, community spirit and the comfort of knowing your neighbours.

Community living brings so many advantages – such as security, likeminded neighbours and new friends - but it does mean compromising in some small ways for the benefit of everyone.

Helping to shape the unique lifestyle that Halcyon home owners love and appreciate are our community rules or guidelines.

Some of these are governed by the legislation we operate under while others are better described as part of the ‘social contract’ of living at Halcyon.

This is the accepted social agreement ...

Easy riders hit the trail

02 August 2018 | by Halcyon

Each Sunday morning, a group of Halcyon Waters’ cyclists known as The Easy Riders, takes off for a leisurely ride. From time to time, they go farther afield; loading up their custom-made bike trailer and heading off to explore a picturesque corner of regional Queensland. Recently, 10 riders and two back-up crew took on ‘peanut country’ - the 43.5km South Burnett Rail Trail from Murgon to Kingaroy.

Easy Rider Graham Bezant (Beezer) penned this account of the trip and its memorable moments that made it yet another example of the fun, friendship and freedom that Halcyon home owners experience.

Goomeri: The “No ...

Halcyon milestone is a life-changing one for Peter and Lyn

02 August 2018 | by Halcyon

FORMER Brisbanites Lyn and Peter Brennan are busy spreading their wings at Halcyon Greens at Pimpama after emerging from the comfortable cocoon of their long-time family home.

The couple’s momentous move to Australia’s first over 50s golf and residential community after more than 40 years in their MacGregor home is also a major milestone for Halcyon with their new home the 1000th the company has built.

Peter and Lynn are immersing themselves in their new lifestyle; made all the sweeter by two of their life-long friends living just “a walk around the corner” in the next street.

“It’s a bit like a kid ...

Putting the fun in run…Halcyon style

05 July 2018 | by Halcyon

Team Halcyon was a streak of blue amid the thousands of runners and walkers who hit the pavement during the Gold Coast Marathon event at Southport last weekend.

More than 115 Halcyon home owners and staff laced up their runners and donned their ocean-blue shirts to take on the 5.7km Gold Coast Airport Fun Run on Saturday morning.

After a lively group warm-up with personal trainer Jessie, Team Halcyon – representing Halcyon Waters, Vision by Halcyon and Halcyon Greens - was ready for the challenge. 

For many it was more of a walk than a run, but thoroughly enjoyable one with good company, ...

Graham’s back in the saddle for charity

08 June 2018 | by Halcyon

Halcyon Greens home owner and retired firefighter Graham Flack has once again pushed himself to the limit by cycling 750km in his eighth Bike4Burns charity ride.

The huge distance was covered in a week by a group of 46 firefighters, retired firies and emergency services colleagues who took the ‘long, long way’ from the Gold Coast to Brisbane, via Toowoomba.

Their efforts raised more than $30,000 for the Children’s Hospital Foundation to spend on burns research - a cause close to their hearts. 

Graham and the other Bike4Burns riders took off in Southport and cycled through Boonah, Killarney, Toowoomba, Blackbutt, Toogoolawah and Mt ...

Lakesiders rally to pickleball

08 June 2018 | by Halcyon

The game with the funny name is catching on at Halcyon Lakeside.

Around 30 home owners have jumped on the community’s purpose-built courts to play pickleball, which blends elements of tennis, badminton and table tennis.

Among the enthusiastic pickleball cohort is Dott Muller who enjoys the new sport so much that she coordinates and coaches pickleball at Lakeside, a role she shares with fellow home owner Christine Dixon.

“It’s something that could take off here and it’s certainly a game that everybody can play,” Dott said.

“The beauty of it is that it’s played a badminton-size court and you don’t have to run as ...
