A sea change and a tree change in one idyllic location

Located within the Greater Geelong region, Lakeside Lara is a place that’s as surprising as it is beautiful. Where history, nature and reinvented urban precincts makes every day an opportunity to try something new or explore somewhere you’ve never been.

Close to wineries, waterfalls, pubs, cafes and restaurants, as well as everyday essentials like the supermarket and pharmacy, you can enjoy the lifestyle you’ve always wanted while staying connected to everything you need.

And with the airport just minutes away, visiting friends and family, or just getting away to somewhere special, has never been easier.

Live the life you love every day

Where home feels like a holiday

Become part of a friendly community, alive with social opportunities, but with the peace and quiet of your own private space. Everything you need is seamlessly integrated into beautifully maintained grounds where getting around is a pleasure.

Our facilities are designed to be welcoming spaces to chat with friends, host visitors or enjoy in solitude. Regular scheduled events and activities are offered to help you forge new friendships and develop new skills – from yoga, craft, woodwork, trivia and movie nights, to our weekly happy hour at the clubhouse, your biggest challenge will be working out what you want to do with your time.

Our team is here to help you feel secure and make things run smoothly, so you’ll have more time than ever to do the things you love – and a community of friends to do them with.

Our pet-friendly community means your best mate can come too.

Feel right at home

The feeling of a brand new home is a luxury that’s difficult to describe. But you’ll know the feeling when you step inside an Ingenia Lifestyle Lakeside Lara home.

Our beautifully-appointed new homes feature seamless open plan interiors, modern entertainer’s kitchens, smart bathroom design and remote-controlled garages with internal access.

Every Lakeside Lara home includes generous outdoor spaces with an ideally sized private backyard – practical elements that cater to your lifestyle, whether that’s fun with the grandkids, a gourmet herb garden, or enough space for your pet to run about.

The indoor-outdoor connection with covered alfresco, alongside the high raked ceilings, provides a bright and airy feel, and with reverse-cycle heating and cooling and ceiling fans, relaxing at home will be a pleasure.
