Hervey Bay community soars to new heights with Eagle’s Nest clubhouse opening
A new resort-style clubhouse at a Hervey Bay land lease community – with its own swimming pool and four rink bowling green – has officially opened its doors at a major community event.
Named in honour of the preserved nest of a native bird of prey that remains on site at the community, the Eagle’s Nest clubhouse is located at Ingenia Lifestyle Hervey Bay.
Ingenia Communities staff and residents were joined by Fraser Coast City Council Mayor George Seymour to officially unveil the commemorative plaque and open the $4 million clubhouse.
General Manager Residential Communities, Justin Blumfield said that the official opening of the clubhouse after a year under construction marks an exciting milestone for the community and would play a major part in delivering the resort lifestyle the community prides itself on.
“The relaxed bayside lifestyle our community at Hervey Bay offers makes it an increasingly popular option for over 50s – here they can escape the hustle and bustle of the city.
“We’re continuing to see this trend particularly as older Aussies flock to regional areas like this,” said Mr Blumfield.
With an expansive range of features, the clubhouse includes a community lounge, sports bar, kitchen, magnesium swimming pool, library, four rink bowling green, gym, media room and alfresco BBQ area.
In addition to the new clubhouse, residents enjoy pre-existing luxury amenities their own 4.9- metre-long Quintrex 490 Renegade boat, which is available for the community to use.
“We’ve designed the community to offer a resort-style retirement and the clubhouse allows us to deliver on this beyond the homes and location and really make the most of the lifestyle opportunities of the region,” Mr Blumfield said.
“The clubhouse remains the central feature of our Ingenia Lifestyle communities across Australia and allows us to deliver the health and lifestyle benefits Aussies prioritise during retirement.
“Great amenities aren’t just a ‘nice-to-have’ – they’re an essential part of thriving and connected neighbourhoods and we’ve seen how they successfully help to create places where people want to live.”
Councillor George Seymour said he was excited to see the completion of the clubhouse after having joined the community at the first sod turning a year ago.
“The Fraser Coast region prides itself on offering an inclusive community and fantastic lifestyle and the addition of the clubhouse at Ingenia Lifestyle Hervey Bay really showcases this,” said Mr Seymour.
“Our goal is to maintain and develop the region’s vibrancy – it’s connection to the local environment and community.
“The development of communities like this helps contribute to the broader Hervey Bay region and its culture and lifestyle – that’s why it’s exciting to see this clubhouse finally reach completion.”
