Opal by Living Gems at  Quinzeh Creek Road, Logan Village will host an open day from 9am on November 11.

The day provides visitors a chance to see the resort with the clubhouse, manual arts workshop and arts and crafts stalls open.  There will be croquet from 11am to noon.

It also provdes a chance to see five display homes which will be open for inspection and potentially a chance to purchase the last of the villas now available for sale.

The over 50s resort is set on 18 landscaped hectares, surrounded by bushland,  with villas starting at $360,000.

“We’re nearing the end of our build at Opal,”  Opal by Living Gems Sales Manager Lyn Butler said.

“It is lovely to see how our residents have come together as a community over the past couple of years as the resort has grown up around them. We’d love to see some new people join our community.”

“I hope people take the opportunity to visit us here at the open day and see for themselves the enviable quality of life that our Opal by Living Gems residents enjoy,” Ms Butler said.

Opal by Living Gems resident Judy McCulloch said moving into the resort was the best decision she had made.

“There is always something interesting on, and it is up to the individual whether they would like to be involved or not,” she said.

Monthly events have included Octoberfest, the Melbourne Cup luncheon with a best hat competition, and in December there will be a Christmas function.

Ms McCulloch, who moved to the resort at the end of 2016, said she enjoyed the indoor bowls and regularly had a drink at Friday afternoon happy hours.

“I also enjoy using the resort’s large pool and associated spa facilities during the warmer months. There are so many activities, it is up to the individual to choose one or two that suits you,” she said.

“ have made some good friends – everyone seems to look after each other here. The activities are almost endless; there is indoor and outdoor bowls, croquet, tennis, a swimming pool, and an indoor games room with a billiards table, arts and crafts groups, a cinema, and regular parties.You can get involved in as many, or as few activities as you would like.”
