Durack Gardens celebrates with Open Day

A $35 million retirement lifestyle village for the over 55s at The Heights, Durack, has opened its doors to the public for the first time.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Simon Maddocks recently joined NT Chief Minister Michael Gunner and around 400 guests for the official opening of Durack Gardens.

The formal proceedings were part of Open Day celebrations, which saw the community invited to take their first look at the village.

On display were fully furnished two and three-bedroom display homes along with the community centre, outdoor pool, barbecue and alfresco areas.

The facility also includes multipurpose function rooms, a gym, pool table, television lounge, library and a large modern kitchen.

Once completed at the end of the year, Durack Gardens will offer 60 architecturally designed homes with energy efficient open plan living, private driveways, lock-up garages and a private alfresco area.

Durack Gardens was constructed by GJ Gardner Homes Darwin, in conjunction with local operator Greenfields Living, which will manage the village when completed.
