Fairways is Townsville’s only master planned golf course community. Centrally located just minutes from Townsville’s CBD and the Strand, Fairways offers an exclusive inner city lifestyle nestled within the heart of the Townsville Golf Course. This private residential enclave captures the golf course greens as a natural backdrop, creating a tranquil, peaceful, open space environment that ensures a premier quality lifestyle and level of prestige for residents.
A considered design approach to the layout will mean that 62% of the lots overlook open space. Fairways features a diverse lot mix, with home sites ranging between 350sqm and 800sqm offering greater choice to perspective purchasers. The development boasts accessibility to local facilities and multiple pedestrian and cycling pathways.
Careful consideration and analysis of the existing site led to the selection of the location of the central pocket park which preserves an existing cluster of fig trees within Stage 4. Innovative stormwater management solutions include a series of swales that will channel run off from the site to water catchment areas and the Golf Course will utilise and recycle run off to irrigate the Golf Course. These grassed swales will also provide a series of environmental corridors for existing fauna species on site.
Fairways features unique and innovative urban design, landscaping and engineering solutions which facilitated certification in the areas of Ecosystems, Waste, Materials and Community.
