Downsizing from your family home is a great way to free yourself from the burden of maintaining a large house and actually live that lifestyle. And where better to do that than on the waterfront?

The “empty nester” stage of life offers an exciting opportunity to enjoy some of your best years yet.

After all, with rising life expectancy, improved health outcomes for all ages, and the freedom to choose work or retirement on your own terms, this life-stage can be the moment you finally invest in your dream lifestyle.

Downsizing from your family home is a great way to free yourself from the burden of maintaining a large house and actually live that lifestyle. And where better to do that than on the waterfront?

The waterfront lifestyle

A waterfront lifestyle is the dream Queenslander lifestyle for people of all ages, and no wonder!

With the ideal climate for enjoying water sports and other outdoor activities almost year-round, Queensland waterfront living is highly sought after by holiday-makers and residents alike.

One popular location offering waterfront living with all the perks is Cotton Tree, which is located on the mouth of the Maroochy River on the Sunshine Coast. This secluded waterfront is the meeting place between the river and ocean, making it more sheltered than a beach-facing waterfront, but with all the convenience of easy access to the beach.

Cotton Tree waterfront living

Cotton Tree’s Maroochydore waterfront location has long been a favourite. The calm river lends itself to a host of water activities, from swimming, kayaking, and stand-up paddle boarding, to fishing, boating, and jet skiing. Meanwhile, the beach is merely 5 minutes away – just a quick stroll (or paddle) down the river.

Of course, Cotton Tree’s idyllic lifestyle isn’t just fun and enjoyable. With the fresh sea air and plenty of opportunities for exercise no matter what your exercise preferences may be, it’s also healthy.

And with the new, master-planned Maroochydore CBD currently under construction, this beachside lifestyle is about to get a whole lot better.

That’s the life!

Picture this.

You wake up on a lazy spring morning with the cool sea air gently blowing through your bedroom window. Coffee on the spacious balcony lets you ease into the day as you take in the pristine water views. Then you pop downstairs and grab your stand-up paddle board for a quick paddle before taking a shower and heading to work. That evening you enjoy a stroll to the beach before dinner – fish and chips for a lazier evening, or a seaside restaurant if the mood takes you.

Sound like a dream? Well, it is dreamy. But with Avalon on the Maroochydore waterfront, this dream can be a reality.
