Spring Lakes Resorts Welcomes First Residents

With clubs at the ready, Helen Stitt is already looking forward to her first hit on the Spring Lakes Resort golf course. She and her husband Colin were officially welcomed as the first two residents of the newly-completed over-50s retirement village.

Moving into their new villa, The Sandpiper design, the Stitts said they felt a sense of comfort due to the area, amenities and safety aspects of Spring Lakes Resort.

“I have lived for almost 50 years in the Avoca area, and in regard to shopping, entertainment and medical services, this location has it all,” Colin said.

“So Spring Lakes really appealed to us because we’re familiar with the area and nearby services.”

Colin said he enjoyed having his own home and private area, while having a range of facilities at his fingertips with the resort clubhouse and other recreational features.

“I think it’s great you have the opportunity to go out and meet up with other residents, and have that community around you,” he said.

Helen said safety was something they and their children discussed before making the move.

“The fact it is fully-fenced with security gates and limited access for people outside to come in, who have to go through a check-in process, made us and our children feel very safe,” Helen said.

Spring Lakes Resort is Bundaberg’s first riverfront over 50s retirement community. It has been specifically designed for low-maintenance living, with luxuriously appointed homes and first-class features. 

The first homes were completed in February, with the resident clubhouse due to be completed in September. Spring Lakes offers retirement homes for sale, as well as a choice of 12 designs to build, including options for caravan, RV and boat storage. All homes are pet friendly.

Spring Lakes Resort project manager Grant Botica said when fully completed, the retirement village would comprise 180 villas, built over 8 stages, with a recreational clubhouse, lakeside sunset bar and viewing deck. There were also plans for a future 96-bed aged care facility.

“Spring Lakes was designed so our residents can enjoy an active retirement with a gym, walking paths, library and billiard room, residents’ workshop, 32-seat cinema, two pools, lawn bowls, bocce lawn and golf course,” Grant said.
