Melbourne Cup 2017
The race that brought us together
Thank you to everyone who joined us last week across all our lovely villages for Melbourne Cup day.
It was great to see everyone step out in style with top hats and fascinators aplenty! There was also plenty of delicious food and beverages available while our residents and their friends and families plus other visitors enjoyed a lively and fun day.
And now as promised, we are thrilled to share the moments that we caught on camera.
Event – Acacia on Lipsett Community Open Day – July 2017
THE DAY THAT LIPSETT SHINED
It was a fantastic turnout for our Retirement Village Open Day at our brand new Community Centre at Acacia on Lipsett. We were grateful to have many first time visitors joining us with their friends and family on a lovely sunny Sunday. Our guests enjoyed the captivating atmosphere of the stunning new Community Centre. They also had the opportunity to meet some of our residents and inspect Acacia Park’s well-appointed 1, 2 and 3 bedrooms villas and apartments available for sale.
The guests were welcomed from as early as 11am as the wonderful Blue and Black Notes Swing Band played throughout the day. Tony ‘Pilko’ Pilkington took the centre stage and provided valuable information about independent retirement living and how to make the move. Pilko addressed some of the common concerns that people have when considering a retirement village, such as downsizing, security and safety and finding like-minded people.
This created an open discussion platform for people to engage with others and talk about their assumptions on moving to a retirement village. Luckily some of our current residents were there to provide first hand insights about their experiences living in a Karidis retirement village.
Food was served and people seemed to enjoy the freshly baked cakes and scones as we had to order some new ones due to popular demand!
Afterwards the attendees had the opportunity to head to our business guest’s kiosks to get professional advice on finances, future planning, additional support options and so much more.
Our sales team had the chance to answer our guest’s questions. One of the questions that did popup a lot was about our Retire Assist option– an individually-tailored financial support option that can help you get into a Karidis Retirement Villages home sooner.
At the end the winner of the door prize was announced. The major door prize was generously donated by Phil Hoffmann Travel. We were pleased to know that all our guests were happy with the information they gained on this day and that they were able to make new friends with like-minded people.
If you would like to take a tour of our villas and apartments across 12 great locations you can check the open inspection times here or alternatively you can call us on 1300 796 311 to book your own exclusive appointment. We will be running our regular Bus Tours very soon.

June Bus Tour
Our June Karidis Retirement Villages Bus Tour was another fantastic day as we toured all our over 55’s lifestyle villages and got to know a great group of people. Our guests were able to ask questions and gain a high level of information in a relaxed and personable atmosphere.
The only dampener on the day was a bit of rain in the morning, but the sun made an appearance by the time we arrived at our brand new Community Centre at Acacia on Lipsett where we had lunch. This beautiful addition to one of our newer villages is a majestic church conversion that is nothing short of breathtaking. Our guests were the first to experience this amazing space and it didn’t disappoint!
Throughout the tour our guests visited a range of our spacious one, two and three bedroom apartments and villas across many of our locations. The feedback provided said they were most impressed by our great locations, size of properties, variety of floor plans, and affordability, including Retire Assist – our individually-tailored financial support options.
We were pleased to know that all our guests were happy with the information they gained on the tour and that they were able to make new friends with like-minded people.
The Karidis Retirement Villages bus tours are FREE and we run them regularly. If you would like to book a seat on our next tour call us on 1300 796 311 or go to the contact page and fill out the form. We look forward to seeing you then!

Event – 2017 Karidis Retirement Village Bus Tour
The Karidis Retirement Villages Bus Tour was a smashing success with high number of guests in attendance. It was a great opportunity for our guests to learn more about what retirement living is all about.
This free event created the chance for our guests to explore our villages, meet with other like-minded people and ask as many as questions as they wanted. It was also a great opportunity for us to get in touch with our guests and learn more about their concerns in regards to retirement living lifestyle and downsizing.
The tour began as a beautiful sunny morning at the Marion Cultural Centre. We then visited a range of our spacious one, two and three bedroom apartments and villas across 12 locations. The guests were most impressed by our great locations, price affordability, facilities, assisted living options and friendly staff, and not to mention the Norfolk community BBQ area, everyone loved that!
At the next stop our guests enjoyed a free lunch and information session at Bay Waters, Glenelg. Everyone had the opportunity to ask their questions and concerns about retirement living lifestyle and making the initial move .
At the end we were delighted to know that all our guests were happy with the information provided and that they were able to make new friends while learning about retirement living options.
