Cutting is a sweet spot for Landing's 'Farmers'

17 August 2018 | by Halcyon

Home owners at Halcyon Landing are tapping into Bli Bli’s agricultural roots with their rural revival of land adjoining an old Bli Bli cane train cutting.

The cutting, which traverses Peppercorn Hill, was originally excavated in 1941 and was later deepened to 10m to allow locomotives to carry greater loads of cane over the hill. 

These days the area sits behind Landing’s community workshed, and the road leading up to the shed is aptly named Peppercorn Lane.

The area caught the attention of some of Landing’s more rural-inclined home owners who have begun transforming almost 2000sqm of unused land just south of the ...

It’s time to Getaway again…

17 August 2018 | by Halcyon

Chances are, that as you read this, the Halcyon Waters Getaway Group is on the road yet again.

Either that or they’ve just returned from another action-packed trip and they’re planning the next one.

Every three months or so, this ever-expanding group of regional road trippers hits the bitumen for a week of fun, frivolity and friendship.

Like most success stories, it didn’t happen overnight; starting eight years ago when a few neighbouring home owners with caravans decided to take off for a few days.

Gradually, the word about these jaunts got around and more and more people began to tag along.

These days, close ...

How Halcyon changed our life:

17 August 2018 | by Halcyon

LIFE IS ONE BIG HOLIDAY FOR KARIN AND KURT

IT’S been six years since Karin and Kurt Stache made their move to Halcyon Waters, and they still feel like they’re on holidays.

That’s exactly how Karin described life just after they arrived in late 2011. And with so much packed into the past six years, Karin says that first impression has not changed one bit.

“You become younger here,” Karin said.

“It really is like always being on holidays.

“People are always telling me that I look much younger than my actual age.”

Before Halcyon they lived on acreage at Redland Bay and were ...

Lyn Young and her ‘tribe’ of grandkids

17 August 2018 | by Halcyon

Meet Jack (6), Sam (3), Ava (7) and Gwen (8), four of Vision by Halcyon home owner Lyn Young’s 12 grandchildren who visit her at the waterfront community in Hope Island.

From ‘MasterChef’ feasts and popcorn-filled movie nights to casting off for an aquatic adventure in the community’s boat, the kids have a ball with an almost endless list of things to do at Nana’s.

“My grandchildren are what keep me going,” Lyn said of the kids’ regular visits.

Lyn’s grateful for Vision’s 5-star leisure facilities, not only for herself but also for the grandkids, who can enjoy a resort-style experience when they ...

Life’s what you make it at Halcyon

17 August 2018 | by Halcyon

For recently departed Vision by Halcyon home owners, Lyn and Ian McEldowney, what you get out of living at Halcyon is entirely up to you.

The couple has returned to their homeland of New Zealand, bringing the curtain down on more than 11 years within the Halcyon fold.

Lyn and Ian became skilled at establishing themselves in Halcyon after being among the first home owners at Halcyon Waters in 2007 and again at Vision by Halcyon in 2014.

Active by nature, Ian was one of the initiators of Halcyon Waters’ walking group, The Striders, and a founding member of the cycling group.

He was ...

My Halcyon Parks life - with home owner Dale Davis

17 August 2018 | by Halcyon

After 13 years as a citrus farmer with very little leisure time, former high school teacher Dale Davis is delighted to be busy in a different way at Halcyon Parks in Caloundra.

“This place is just amazing,” Dale said. “There are so many things to do if you want to do them.

“The people here are so friendly, helpful and welcoming.”

With plenty of physical activity, cultural pursuits, social get-togethers and family time in her schedule, Dale is making the most of her Halcyon Days.

We tag along as she blends fitness, fun and friendship during a typical week in her busy life at ...

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 ...
