Plenty of Christmas cheer at Nature’s Edge Buderim.

The festive season is here and celebrations are in full swing at the over 50’s lifestyle village.


As part of the lively social calendar, more than 130 residents enjoyed a sumptuous two-course Christmas dinner earlier this month organised by the very active social committee. Held in the multi-million-dollar Leisure Centre each year, the evening is always a big success, with a live band and plenty of dancing adding to the party atmosphere.


Resident and social committee chair Don Flanigan, says the social events at Nature’s Edge Buderim are continuing to grow in numbers, which is testament to the friendly, inclusive atmosphere the community is known for.


“This is my second Christmas at the village and it is always a lot of fun,” says Don.


“We hold the dinner every year and residents who book a table can come and decorate their table however they like. We have it fully catered and the bar is open of course.”
Christmas Day is always extra special at Nature’s Edge Buderim, with a fun “orphans” lunch organised for those residents who are on their own over the festive season.


“A lot of people are on their own at Christmas time, so one of the residents has organised a lovely lunch in the main hall where people can go along, share a meal and make new friends,” says Don.


With the summer months now upon us and residents making the most of the warmer evenings, Don says the regular Friday night Happy Hour drinks on the rainforest deck is attracting record numbers!


“Recently, we had about 65 people out on the balcony. Everyone brings a plate of nibbles and the atmosphere is always friendly.”


From the team at Nature’s Edge Buderim, we wish you and yours a very safe and merry Christmas.
