People who live and work on the land know the meaning of hard work, the value of a dollar and the advantages of an over 50s’ lifestyle resort, according to Gemstone Rise sales manager Karen Duffy.

“Since opening the sales office at Gemstone Rise over 50s’ lifestyle resort at Glenvale Toowoomba a few weeks ago, I have been inundated with enquiries,” Karen says.

“Gemstone Rise is the first Toowoomba resort for international award winning over 50s’ housing provider Living Gems, the Queensland family owned and operated company that has set the standard for lifestyle resorts since 1982.

“Local people who want to stay in the area but no longer want to manage a large property or maintain a big house are flocking to Gemstone Rise. They can’t believe what they get for their money.

“People love the spacious brand new architect designed homes with all the modern conveniences. The long list of inclusions in the standard price is very impressive but I think the most popular item is the fully ducted air conditioning and the fireplace.

“The homes are lovely and the five star resort facilities are beyond imagining but it is the community lifestyle that has the greatest appeal. Gemstone Rise buyers can enjoy life in a pet-friendly community of like-minded people, make friends and have fun.

“Homeowners have exclusive use of a magnificent swimming pool and spa, a stylish country club with dining areas and a bar plus a beautiful ballroom with a theatre stage and a private cinema.

“Onsite facilities include a tennis court, bowling green and a gym. The resort is set in hectares of landscaped grounds, they will be planned and planted to show the blooms that make Toowoomba the Garden City.

“Living Gems offers on site caravan and boat storage so leisure vehicles are on hand and ready to go whenever the wanderlust takes you. You can enjoy your holiday knowing your home is secure.

“Gemstone Rise has everything you need and everything you want on site. Major shopping centres, services and medical facilities plus a public and a private hospital are nearby and there is a community bus.

“Living Gems offers an industry best no fee guarantee. There are no entry fees, exit fees, stamp duties or council rates. Homeowners may sell at any time and retain all of their capital gain,” Karen says.

  1. I live in a fantastic Retirement Village on the outskirts of Melbourne with the best of both worlds, close to shopping centres yet the beauty of the country.

  2. Happy living on my small rural acreage in the central Hunter Valley. Good distance from the coast and major centres. Always great to come home to peace and tranquility. Surrounded by a good variety of birds too. Love my birds.

  3. I like the concept but I don’t think it’s for us, there’s nothing like that in this area and as we have family here we are unlikely to move away. We will down size in the future but life’s pretty good at the moment.

  4. I love our little piece of paradise a few acres lots of bird life just sit a watch the river roll by, only 30 minutes from Hobart for some fun a bit of culture If needed heaps of great pubs with roaring fires. We love it.

  5. Yes. Would love this if only it was in my area where we are familiar with and don’t have to leave the family behind. There are many of these beautiful resorts but they are all so far away
