Crafty Chris is sewing the seeds of love

17 September 2019 | by Halcyon Greens

Chris Carter has never forgotten how kindness touched her life when she needed it most. “I was a single mum for a number of years and I had absolutely nothing,” the Halcyon Greens home owner recalled.

“I had a wonderful bunch of ladies that I worked with who could see that I didn’t have any food for the family when I ate Vita Brits for lunch every day for a week. “They would take up a collection for me, and every now and then they would buy me a food parcel. “I’ve never forgotten their generosity.”

That kindness and a humbling visit ...

Judith and Stan land an unforgettable anniversary

17 September 2019 | by Halcyon Landing

There’s never been a 60th wedding anniversary celebration quite like this one. The guests waded through water to reach the venue, the boat didn’t leave the wharf and the bride renewed her wedding vows in bare feet.

“It was better than our wedding day,” laughed Halcyon Landing home owner Judith Smith.
It was meant to be a scenic cruise and anniversary lunch with their dearest friends on the Maroochy River. But it turned out to be something rather different, but also quite wonderful for Judith and her husband Stan, who moved to Landing in 2012.

Judith said a flooding king tide on ...

Culinary Keith has them eating out of his hand

17 September 2019 | by Halcyon Waters

Keith Rice’s heart for cooking and head for numbers have blended perfectly to serve up thousands of hearty meals to Halcyon Waters’ home owners over the years. The former accountant has always loved cooking and after retiring he dabbled in catering for small groups, but things went up a notch when he and wife Aine moved to Halcyon Waters in 2013.

“We’d go up to the Leisure Club for Happy Hour on a Friday night and the social group had a little pie warmer with pies and sausage rolls,” he recalled. “I thought we could probably do better than this so ...

The art of pressing your ‘happy buttons’

17 September 2019 | by Halcyon

Research increasingly shows that unlocking and expressing creativity through visual art is good for our health and well-being. We spoke to some of our home owners about the benefits they reap from their artistic endeavours.

The desire to create and learn brings many Halcyon home owners together to craft their own works of art. As they do, there’s something else taking shape: feelings of happiness, connection, contentment, achievement and even surprise.

Passionate potter Jeanette Burke has been creating with clay for years and teaches the craft to her fellow home owners at Halcyon Lakeside. She said that shaping clay in the community’s ...

Kevin and Jenny drop anchor at Vision

17 September 2019 | by Vision by Halcyon

Dedicated boaties Kev Bourke and Jenny Bankier have certainly made a splash since anchoring themselves at Vision by Halcyon earlier this year. Eager to be as close to deep water as possible, the seafaring couple moved to the waterfront community at Hope Island from a large beachside home at Kingscliff.

“It gave us the opportunity to buy a power boat and get back on the water,” Jenny said.
“This is the only place we found with close, deep water access to the Broadwater, so we can be out there very quickly.

“We’re going to be spending quite a bit of time on ...
