SUNRISE LIFESTYLE RESORT PORT STEPHENS

HOMETOWN Australia Communities recently held the official launch of its newest prestige over 55's lifestyle community, Sunrise Lifestyle Resort Port Stephens.

Over 100 guests including a large contingent of future homeowners and local dignitaries joined in the celebration. After a week of severe weather Port Stephens turned on beautiful weather for the event. A real feature of the proceedings was the Smoking Ceremony, a particularly moving and solemn ritual performed by Uncle Leigh of the Worrimi.

Sunrise sets a new benchmark in lifestyle resort living for the over 55's offering superb facilities which include a state of the art clubhouse complex with 2 swimming pools, gymnasium and wellness centre, tennis & pickle ball courts, bowling green, theatre, library, function and dining room, sports bar and recreation areas, craft room, workshop, caravan storage and so much more.

Hometown's communities are known for quality amenities and professional onsite management. Community involvement, good citizenship and corporate responsibility are fundamental to Hometown's long and successful track record.

Presenting over 55 Australians with the lifestyle they deserve is Hometown Australia's top priority. And nobody does it better.
