More in store at The Heights, Durack

Darwin’s newest childcare centre and over 55s retirement living community will open within the next 12 months at The Heights, Durack on the doorstep of Palmerston campus.

The 103-place child care centre, Top End Buddies, and retirement living community, Durack Gardens, will add to the amenities already available at the growing community being established by the Peet Group, in collaboration with the university.

Top End Buddies director Matt Kibble said he was looking forward to the company opening its first centre in the Northern Territory.

“We’re a family-owned business with three successful childcare centres in Victoria,” Mr Kibble said.

“Our overall philosophy at Top End Buddies will be learning through play-based experiences,” he said.

The $35 million Durack Gardens is being developed by local companies McMahon Services and Northern Commercial Constructions.

It will provide a choice of 60 high-quality, two and three bedroom homes, built by GJ Gardner Homes Darwin, each offering energy efficient open plan living, private driveways, lock up garages and a private alfresco area.

When completed Durack Gardens will be managed by experienced local operator Greenfields Living.
