Peace of Mind

Despite its laid back charm Lake Macquarie provides easy access to either Sydney or Newcastle, connected to both by the M1 Pacific Motorway.

Avondale Lifestyle Community is located just 60 minutes north of Sydney, 40 minutes south of Newcastle and just a short drive to the sleepy beachside havens of the Central Coast.


The beauty and serenity of Lake Macquarie and its surrounds are famous Australia wide for a lifestyle offer that is every bit as unique as it sounds.

With a lake twice the size of Sydney Harbour enjoy lakeside strolls, cruising, kayaking, fishing, boating or pristine uncrowded coastline.

Or if rural serenity is more your thing, enjoy picturesque views of the Watagan Mountains and nearby birdwatching, scenic lookouts, coastal bushwalks, mountain hiking, waterfalls and endless picnic destinations.


Enjoy the convenience of nearby shopping destinations, dining options, activities, social and sporting clubs.

An easy 50 minute drive will take you to all the art galleries, boutique stores, community markets and wineries of the Hunter Valley.

Fee For Service

If you do not wish to have an ACAT assessment Adventist Senior Living Home Care can provide tailored services at an agreed cost.

Home Care Package

ACAT help you and your carers determine the kind of care that best meets your needs. A member of the team, which may include a doctor, nurse, social worker and/or other health professional, will meet with you to assess your needs and how well you are managing at home. They will identify the right services for you and the level of care you require. You will receive a letter from ACAT stating the types of subsidised services for which you have approval.
