From shopping and catching up with friends to relaxing with a good book, taking a stroll, enjoying some pampering or working up a sweat, Waterford offers daily essentials and life’s luxuries with equal ease.
At the heart of Waterford will be the proposed village centre to be built by Challenger, with plans for specialty shops, gourmet stores, possible supermarket and cafes. The welcoming lawns of the anticipated village green will provide the perfect setting for lunch in the sunshine or chatting over a coffee and freshly baked pastries.
Just minutes away, Stockland Green Hills shopping centre and Maitland’s Heritage Mall offer a diverse range of shops, services and department stores, while a 30 min drive to Newcastle offers everything else a modern lifestyle could possibly require.
Whatever you need to soothe the soul and fire-up the spirit, you’re sure to find it close to home.
Those who like the feel of sand between their toes will delight in being so close to the beaches of Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and Port Stephens, with swimming, sailing, waterskiing, fishing, snorkelling, surfing, rowing all within easy reach.
For the more culturally-minded, historic Maitland and Morpeth are home to some of the region’s finest markets, craft stores, antique dealers, and cafes. And of course, with over 150 quality wineries and cellar-doors to visit, the nearby Hunter Valley delights even the most demanding of wine connoisseurs.
When it’s time to work off all those gourmet temptations, the region offers four outstanding international-standard golf courses located within 20 minutes drive of Waterford. You’ll also find world-class equestrian facilities and riding trails, fitness and swimming centres, sports facilities, yoga, pilates and personal training studios, hiking tracks, and of course, Waterford’s own network of walking trails and cycle ways.
