Peace of Mind

Social Activities

Aussies downsizing for retirement love the wide range of social activities in over 55 communities. Residents can choose how active or relaxed they want to be each day, as there’s no shortage of social gatherings from sports to games to local theatre and so much more. It’s also easy to have family and friends come over and connect with the larger community so no one feels lonely or isolated.


Walking groups, lawn bowls, and aqua aerobics are just a few examples of excellent exercise and social opportunities at luxury retirement villages. It’s all about balance and giving residents the chance to be independent yet involved in their local community. Of course, all the exercise options are great for staying healthy and strong, too.

Whether it’s participating in yoga, billiards, croquet, music, or arts and crafts, all the activities and social groups are crucial to overall physical, mental, and emotional wellness.
