How You Can Live in Luxury Locations with Hometown Australia

There is a lot to love about land lease living with Hometown Australia. Saving you plenty of money as you downsize from the family home, our communities let you avoid stamp duty and council rates. Once you add potential government subsidies to the equation, your budget will be glad you’ve been looking into over 50’s* lifestyle homes for sale. Beyond the finances, there are three more great reasons to choose Hometown: location, location, location!

Hometown Australia have communities in some of the most sought-after tourism locations in Australia. Providing the ultimate seachange, you can buy a Hometown Australia home near pristine beaches, nestled in picturesque landscapes and culturally rich environments.

Lots of Aussies hope to escape to warmer weather as they retire — which is one of the reasons that property prices are so high in popular seaside destinations. Hometown Australia unlocks your buying potential in these areas, making it affordable for over 50s  to get the beach lifestyle for themselves. The land lease model hands you the keys to areas like the Sunshine Coast and Port Macquarie, with money left over to fund the lifestyle you’ve been looking forward to.

Let’s explore some of the beautiful locations on offer:


Iconic for a reason, Queensland is a magnet for anyone looking to swap their urban environment for sun, sand, and a laid-back lifestyle. If you feel revitalised by the fresh sea air, and love starting your day with an invigorating dip in the ocean, Queensland is the place for you. With warm winters and hot summers, you can leave the scarves behind when you move to one of our over 50’s* lifestyle villages in Queensland.

The Red Gum community is on the Gold Coast, just minutes from the famous Surfers Paradise. Head out for a paddle, lap up the energetic atmosphere, or head up the coast for hidden gems.

Maroochy Shores is a community on the gorgeous Sunshine Coast. Boasting jaw-dropping beaches as far as the eye can see, this community is just 30 minutes away from the upscale Noosa — without the hefty Noosa Heads price tag.

If you have family in Sydney, you might find Banksia Waters to be the perfect fit. Just moments from Coolangatta, this community straddles the border between Queensland and NSW. Get the relaxed atmosphere and weather of Queensland in a convenient Northern NSW location.

New South Wales

For Sydneysiders who have spent summers along the northern coast of New South Wales, Hometown Australia communities allow you to permanently move to your favourite holiday spot. Keeping you within driving distance of your old home base, our locations give you the flexibility to keep up with your friends and commitments. Hometown Australia’s over 50’s* lifestyle villages in New South Wales give you the seachange you crave and the better weather — while staying close enough for family to visit.

Hometown Australia offer four different communities in the famous Port Macquarie region: Taskers, The Retreat, Newport, and Glenfern. Enjoy the bustling cafes and incredible fresh seafood on offer, or take the boat out for some of the best fishing in Australia.

Head north to the Sanctuary community in Lennox Head which gets you within 30 minutes of Byron Bay. With an easygoing energy, this region is famed for its bohemian, vibrant community spirit.

Further south, Hometown offers five stunning communities in Port Stephens: Homestead, Sandy Shores, Sea Winds, Birubi Beach, and Sunrise. Perfect for anyone who loves sailing, fishing, walking, hiking, or just generally enjoying the great outdoors, this gorgeous region brushes up against the Tomaree National Park. 

South Australia

Where the city lifestyle meets the trees (and vines and beaches), over 50’s* lifestyle villages in South Australia give you it all. Already one of the more affordable states in Australia, our South Australian communities give you an exceptional lifestyle with plenty of budget left to lock-and-leave for some travel.

Based on the stunning Fleurieu Peninsula, the Rosetta community is in Victor Harbor. The perfect place for keen bike riders, this spot has incredible scenic trails. Enjoy the sunshine with some fish and chips on the beach or swim in the turquoise water of Encounter Bay. If you fancy yourself a sommelier, you’ll love that the McLaren Vale wine region is just a 30-minute drive away.

Also on the Fleurieu Peninsula, the Seachange community in Goolwa is just an hour’s drive from Adelaide. Enjoy the natural beauty of the area, while staying close to the cultural hub of ‘The Festival State’. Check out the Adelaide Fringe, watch the AFL or Cricket at Adelaide Oval, or dine at one of the many delicious fine-dining restaurants on offer.
