First up, a major retirement village operator has launched an innovative new project which will allow caregivers - including family members - to live alongside frail residents.

Separately, construction is now underway on a 151-home land lease community in Australia’s most popular downsizing destination. Hometown Australia has launched its new Glenfern lifestyle community, in Port Macquarie. The company has also released photomontages showing the community’s proposed 25m lap pool, lawn bowls green and new homes.

Finally, they might be uninhabitable, and lack even electricity or running water, but beachside sheds have become Australia’s hottest downsizing trend. Buyers on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula are paying up to $570,000 to secure the rustic sheds, so they can enjoy direct beach access and unimpeded views on lazy summer days.
