Goodwin’s own village bus takes you on group outings, including the latest National Gallery of Australia exhibition and to regional destinations and eateries.
There’s plenty to keep you as active as you like, or you can choose private tranquillity with the security of having a community around you.
Green spaces and walking paths offer various retreats, or take advantage of stylish outdoor living in landscaped gardens with BBQs, croquet green, alfresco dining and visitor play areas – without having to do any of the work.
The spacious clubhouse acts as the heart of the village, providing a hub for village activity and a social space for all residents to enjoy. This remarkably designed building provides two floors of food and entertainment space, as well as an outdoor dining area.
The licensed café and bar is perfect for grabbing a coffee, drink or bite to eat, or simply catching up with friends and family. The fully-equipped gymnasium will allow you to enjoy exercise at any time, and the cinema, billiards room, library and events/games spaces means there’s no shortage of entertainment.
Meantime, your private balcony or courtyard offers manageable garden space of your own, and you can lock-and-leave your apartment to go travelling any time.
