Botanica Lifestyle Resort launched last week to a capacity crowd at their new display suite at Smithfield shopping centre, unveiling their collection of architecturally designed homes and exclusive first release prices. The visionary community at Caravonica has been eagerly anticipated, as its founders meticulously planned every detail with the aim of setting a new benchmark for overs 50s living in Cairns.

Unveiled by Cairns Deputy Mayor Terry James, the launch event highlighted the support that the Botanica project has garnered throughout the region. With only limited homes available in the first release, Botanica’s sales team are now fielding immense interest after the opening.

Drawing on a hugely popular concept already proven throughout Australia, Botanica residents can choose from a range of architecturally designed homes clustered around luxurious facilities in a secure gated community, with no entry or exit fees.

On its completion the resort will feature 196 homes arranged around two world class country clubs which will be the centrepieces of the resort. As well as creating social spaces for residents to gather, the resort’s facilities will include a luxury cinema, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, sauna and spa, games room, tennis courts, workshop, art and craft room, library, gym, lounge and dining areas as well as an undercover lawn bowls green. Botanica will also be surrounded by greenery with lush private gardens around the resort, 8 hectares of public open space for both our residents and the community to enjoy and a picturesque backdrop of the Macalister Range.

As well as a country club lifestyle, the allure of Botanica is also found in its signature collection of architectural homes designed by the award winning CA Architects. There are a range of two and three bedroom home designs on offer with RV garages available for those who love a good road trip with the caravan in tow. To suit different tastes, each home design provides future residents with a choice of either a contemporary or classic façade.

The low maintenance lifestyle at Botanica and the security of the gated community is the perfect platform for residents who love to travel, as they are ensured peace of mind whenever they are away.
