Gold Coast Light Rail Stage 2: Just a Stone’s Throw Away from Seachange Arundel

22 Oct, 2015

Our residents at Seachange Arundel already know they are living in the best retirement village on the Gold Coast. Soon, they are going to have it even better. Recently, the Queensland Government announced tentative plans for the Gold Coast Light Rail, Stage 2. For Seachange Arundel residents, the big news is that the Light Rail will make a stop at the end of Napper Road, which will be less than 1km away from Seachange Arundel.

For our residents, this is great news, because the station will be within walking distance for most of our active adult community at Seachange Arundel. Stage 2 will take residents to the Gold Coast Hospital, the Southport Business District and the Westfield and Pacific Fair shopping areas. If that was all it did, it would be great. But there’s more…

Gold Coast Light Rail Stage 2 will connect residents with the Gold Coast Light Rail Stage 1. Stage 1 runs from the Gold Coast University Hospital to Broadbeach South Station. That means that less than 1km from your door, you will have access to the best of the Gold Coast.

The stops from South to North: Broadbeach South, Broadbeach North, Florida Gardens, Northcliffe, Surfers Paradise, Cavill Avenue, Cypress Avenue, Surfers Paradise North, Main Beach, Broadwater Parklands, Southport South, Southport, Nerang Street, Queen Street, Griffith University and Gold Coast University Hospital.

We are happy to hear about the new railway, which is in the works. Though it is officially on “proposed” status, it is Stage 2 of a plan to provide a state of the art transportation infrastructure in time for the Commonwealth Games in 2018.

Why the New Rail is Important to Seachange Arundel

When we created Seachange Arundel, we wanted to create a retirement village that was a world class over 50s lifestyle resort on the Gold Coast, but make it affordable enough so that people could spend the rest of their lives here. We built Seachange Arundel on the principles of friendship, fun and fitness, because we know those are the three qualities that will give our residents the kind of lives they have always wanted to live, but never had the time.

We decided to make Seachange Arundel the kind of place where people move in because they want to, not because they have to. In Florida, we visited a retirement village that was a lot closer to what we had in mind. It had active over 50s having the time of their lives. This resort was a place where people come to live and enjoy. We knew we could do even better when we got back to Australia.

The Plan

Here is what we knew we had to have. We wanted a five star country club on the premises. We wanted other amenities, such as swimming and tennis, that would encourage people to be active. We wanted a world class restaurant and a sports bar where people could enjoy themselves. We knew we had to build a luxury retirement community that would hold its own with any over 50s lifestyle resort on the Gold Coast. And that’s exactly what we did.

The Result

The end result: Seachange Arundel. Our 5-Star Country Club is in the centre of the village. It offers a restaurant, a sports bar, floodlit tennis courts, an indoor heated pool and spa, a library, a gymnasium and many more amenities. We are also within 10 km of everything the Gold Coast has to offer.
