Downsizers Enjoy Freedom and Happiness at Bellarine Springs

More and more people aged 55 and over are turning to retirement villages to give them a newfound freedom to enjoy themselves and escape from the day-to-day responsibilities of managing a large family home.

According to a report on the retirement industry by research company McCrindle Baynes, the convenience and freedom that people experience when they relocate to a retirement community gives them a big lift in happiness and life satisfaction.

The report states that the main reason people downsize to a village is to reduce the amount of time spent maintaining their home – thereby freeing-up time to travel, relax and enjoy other interests. And when it comes to downsizing to a village on the Bellarine Peninsula, there are lots of fabulous reasons why people aged 55 and over are making the move to Bellarine Springs.

Located on 24 acres of beautiful gardens and parkland just a short drive from Geelong and close to the beach, Bellarine Springs is a growing community of friendly, like-minded people who have made the decision to downsize their family homes and upsize their lives.

Since Bellarine Springs opened in 2016, downsizers from the local community, Geelong and beyond have been snapping-up homes and making the most of their newfound freedom. Along with the independence that comes with living in their own high-quality, low-maintenance brick home, residents also enjoy a wide array of resort-style facilities, including a modern MBA-Award-winning community centre, indoor heated pool and spa, gymnasium, lawn bowling green, movie theatrette, tennis court, a practice golf putting green and a range of daily group activities. Importantly, privacy is always respected, and all residents have the choice to be as involved or not involved as they wish.

Bellarine Springs offers a wide choice of architect-designed homes, with each distinct residence offering everything you need for comfort, enjoyment and a worry-free lifestyle. The undulating village landscape and layout is also designed with space and privacy in mind, so downsizers can relax and enjoy the beautiful vistas of the surrounding grounds without the day-to-day responsibilities of maintaining a full-sized family home.


Ultimately, Bellarine Springs will boast 194 high-quality brick homes, each designed for private and comfortable independent living. Construction is currently underway on Stages 4  homes at the village, and homes are already being quickly snapped-up ‘off the plan’.
