When you are no longer a slave to the working week, how do you dream of spending your time? Will it be with a hit on the golf course, lining up the jack on the green, catching up with neighbours or perhaps just watching the sun set over the beautiful Burnett River? 

This is the vision of Spring Lakes Resort, Bundaberg’s newest over 50s retirement community. Nestled in the quiet suburb of Avoca, Spring Lakes is also the Region’s first riverfront resort. This gated community has been carefully planned, with its own golf course, bowling green, clubhouse, pools, cinema, gym and more. Residents won’t be left wanting for something to do.

Spring Lakes Project Manager Grant Botica said the resort had a unique outlook, with 29 acres of river frontage and was attracting a lot of interest due it its close proximity to medical facilities, hospitals, shopping and dining. 

“Unlike other retirement resorts, we offer a range of block sizes, as well as a choice of one of 12 home designs,” Grant said. 

He said some of their buy-off-the-plan house designs include storage for caravans, RVs and boats. A number of new homes have already been built and are ready for residents to move straight in. 

“We have thoughtfully designed Spring Lakes as a community that has it all for retirees who are active and independent, but want the security of a community around them and want to know that a lot of the maintenance is taken care of.”


Spring Lakes Resort is located on River Springs Drive, Avoca 4670.
