Community is key at Nature’s Edge Buderim.

There’s a reason why Nature’s Edge resident Jenny Lewis decided to have her outdoor living area at the front of her house.


Located adjacent to the lawn bowls and bustling leisure centre, Jenny loves nothing more than seeing the familiar faces of her neighbours, who are always quick with a smile, a wave or a chat.


“If I’m sitting out there reading a book, everyone says hello. I love that,” says Jenny.


Relocating from the Gold Coast fourteen months ago, after her husband David sadly passed away, Jenny was seeking an environment where she wouldn’t feel alone or isolated. Nature’s Edge Buderim ticked all the boxes.


A gifted artist, one of David’s stunning artworks hangs proudly in Jenny’s living room. Adorning the entire wall, the striking painting is always a talking point, keeping her beloved late husband’s memory alive.

Jenny Lewis describes why community is key at Natures Edge Buderim


“I just don’t like being somewhere where you don’t speak to anybody all day. That’s why I love sitting out there and just having a bit of a chat. It makes such a big difference,” says Jenny.


“It’s just so pleasant being here. I have made lots of new friends and there is always company close by. I love the setting and the rainforest surrounds.”

A regular at the social dinners and the stretch classes, Jenny says she loves the friendly community feel at Nature’s Edge Buderim.


“There is always lots happening and the residents receive emails about what’s on, so you are kept up to date with everything,” says Jenny.


“You can join in everything if you want and if you don’t want to, it doesn’t matter.”
