Embrace the best of lakeside living at Natura Port Stephens

Seeking the secret to a long and healthy life? The newest residents at Natura, Ingenia Lifestyle’s Port Stephens community, have found the answer is in your environment.

With links to increased physical activity, improved sleep, reduced blood pressure and stress and overall better health, time in nature is one of the best remedies for the stresses of modern life.

So what better place to escape the hustle and bustle than a community designed to embrace and celebrate its natural surrounds?

Having welcomed its first residents earlier this year, Natura is a new over 55s community that integrates seamlessly with nature. Tucked away among bushland and backing onto an untouched nature reserve, Natura creates an atmosphere of peace and privacy despite being just minutes from Port Stephens’ famous beaches, shopping options and restaurants.


Natura is a natural haven for over 55s

The entire community has been designed around an expansive, private lake – already home to an abundance of native bird and plant life. With the architecturally designed future clubhouse (due for completion October 2024), positioned to look out to the lake across a sparkling infinity pool, nature will be the backdrop to daily life.

This space brings the vibrant community hub together with its natural heart, and residents will always feel immersed in nature, whether they’re enjoying happy hour on the deck, sweating in the gym, or getting their hands dirty in the veggie gardens.

Plans to add a boardwalk encircling the lake have just been approved, so it won’t be long before residents can make even more use of this natural gem. The boardwalk is planned to form part of a walking circuit throughout the community, perfect for a brisk daily walk.

And Natura’s commitment to nature extends well beyond its integrated design.

The community is pet-free for the protection of native wildlife in the neighbouring nature reserve, and Ingenia Lifestyle have partnered with Port Stephens Koala Hospital to support koala habitat preservation efforts in the region. Ingenia have planted 500 mature koala feed trees in the region, including a grove of 80 trees which will form part of the community’s sensory garden for the enjoyment of residents and koalas alike.

For many of Natura’s new residents, the community is an ideal setting for a relaxed, connected way of living. Community Manager, Debra Howard, said: “Residents love the immersion in nature and the feeling of escape while being so close to everything. With our exquisite natural environment and a state-of-the-art clubhouse, Natura offers a unique appeal to over 55s, fostering essential connections to nature and community vital for wellbeing.”

The boutique community is in high demand among over 55s looking for wellbeing and connection.

Natura’s second release is selling now, with two- and three-bedroom homes available now.
