Many councils and government bodies are recognizing that integrated, state-of-the-art facilities incorporating shared meeting and recreational spaces can support a more active, resilient and connected community. With the increasing number of female participants in sports, flexible multi-purpose facilities not only support local clubs as their numbers increase and requirements shift, but offer non-sporting community [...]

With a country surrounded by water, it’s no wonder that the great Australian dream of house ownership can quickly extend to thoughts of a beach house.
