Judging by the enthusiastic response at the official opening on November 1, with the symbolic cutting of a red ribbon into the complex, the Seachange Lifestyle Resort in Toowoomba is going to be a resounding success.

In perfect weather conditions a lively group of prospective residents invited to the opening chatted excitedly as they viewed the luxurious facilities the project will offer when completed. The construction of the resort – aimed at the over 50s – was only begun on February 22 of this year but it is already obvious that Seachange has a lot to offer to those looking for this type of lifestyle. So far a handful of the 162 homes planned for the boutique community have been completed.

To those viewing the high quality of craftsmanship was evident as the homes are to be set amongst wide leafy boulevards and carefully constructed gardens. There was immediate feeling of comfort and homeliness for those wishing to downsize and to reduce their responsibilities without having to compromise.

Seachange Toowoomba offers two different precincts, The Summer House and Main Clubhouse. The resort is aiming to play host to a calendar of interesting events where residents can interact as a true community. The amenities that are being provided cover a range wide and disparate enough to satisfy everyone. These feature heated indoor and outdoor pools, a gymnasium, a tennis court, a bowling green and a sauna. There will also be a meeting room, lounge, art studio, commercial kitchen, cinema, woodworking shop and, for those wanting to relax at the end of the day, a bar.

Seachange Toowoomba is the latest project undertaken by Pradella Developments, which is among the leading development companies in the property market in south-east Queensland. The company is part of the Pradella Group, which was established in 1959 and has long been renowned for its quality products.
