Maroba Leads with Highrise Retirement Village in Belmont

In a first for Maroba Caring Communities and Belmont CBD, Maroba on Macquarie will offer residents the lifestyle and independence they have always enjoyed, along with comfort and security that comes with living in a community.

“Maroba on Macquarie has been designed to encourage residents to maintain their independence as well as their connection with the local community. We want Maroba on Macquarie to be a friendly environment with space for residents to enjoy all the benefits of living in a vibrant city centre,” says Viv Allanson, Maroba CEO.

Centrally located at Macquarie St, Belmont, these modern dwellings are close to shopping centres, public transport, hospital, cafés, medical centres, clubs, restaurants and the beautiful lake.

The intimate retirement community offers 12 contemporary apartments comprising a mix of one and two bedrooms featuring quality finishes and natural deco. Each apartment is thoughtfully designed with comfort and security in mind, and also includes fully accessible bathrooms and balconies, gourmet kitchens with European appliances and light, airy and spacious living throughout.

Choosing to move into a retirement village is an important lifestyle decision, and the right village can offer a host of advantages that make life easier, more sociable and enjoyable. Being part of a Maroba retirement village means having peace of mind, knowing you can live independently but can also call on the friendly staff for help accessing support services in times of special need or an emergency.

Through our Community Service program, you can also connect with the wider Maroba Community and participate in a varied program of wellness and support services that includes access to a gymnasium, onsite allied health professionals, organised outings and functions, and ongoing support and care services. Already offered for our Waratah residents, and for many people in the wider Newcastle area, the Maroba Community will be expanding to serve new residents of Maroba on Macquarie and others in the Belmont community. It’s time to relax and love every minute being part of the friendly Maroba Community!

This stylish four-storey vertical retirement village is DA approved and now selling off the plan. For more information contact Tracy Walker on 0422 800 561 or email
