Docklander - October 2013

Docklander - October 2013 Image

Lyn Faull thinks Docklands is the perfect place to enjoy her retirement.

A hairdresser for 50 years, Lyn moved to Docklands from Townsville after she retired.

When she moved into her apartment in NewQuay, Lyn knew just three other people living in Melbourne.

Although a brave decision, Lyn is now certain the move to Docklands was the right choice for her.

After settling into her new home she quickly joined local Rotary and Probus clubs and became involved in the Docklands community.

Now Lyn says she can’t go anywhere without bumping into someone she knows.

“One of the most social parts of Docklands is the lift in my building. There’s always someone to chat with,” Lyn said.

Lyn also enjoys meeting with a group of local ladies every Friday afternoon to talk, laugh, enjoy craft, drink cups of tea and toast with champagne.

Lyn says Docklands is like a village. While geographically close to the city and easily accessible she feels separated from the hustle and bustle.

At the same time, Lyn says there is always something going in Docklands, whether it be fireworks, interesting boats sailing into the harbour, or a new restaurant or store opening.

“Because Docklands is only half established, I’ve really enjoyed watching it continue to grow,” Lyn said.

Lyn also thinks living in Docklands has kept her active and involved.

“When you move from a house to an apartment, what you’re really buying is a lifestyle,” Lyn said. “It’s a lifestyle that allows you to enjoy your life.”

According to Lyn, the low-maintenance nature of apartment living means she has more time to enjoy each and every day.

Lyn said Docklands was now her home for life and she couldn’t imagine leaving.

 “I love my life.”
