Tallowood Ridge residents celebrate


The first get together was held recently for Tallowood Ridge residents, with current and future residents gathering in the community park to celebrate Christmas and welcome in the new year.

“The party was great” said Mark Evans, who has purchased lot 2 in Tallowood Ridge with his partner. “We are not living on site yet so it was great to meet the neighbours. We are just looking forward to living in a community where we can build something together. It’s really exciting for us to finally move somewhere where we can actually feel part of the community”.

Close to 40 people attended the gathering, enjoying a barbecue put on by owners of the community.

“This is the start of real community caring and sharing” said Chair of the owner’s team Christopher Dean. “At the heart of any community is a regular meeting between the residents sharing their successes, airing concerns and bringing energy to community needs. It is hoped that this will be the first of many regular sessions that will help bond the community into a real heart centred place for all residents. It was perfect to start this on the day our new play park was opened”.

Tallowood Ridge has experienced unprecedented interest over the past few months, with eight sales taking place since October. All these buyers except one were from the Byron shire, with three lots going to investors and the remaining four being purchased by locals intending to move into Tallowood Ridge.

A family from Perth attracted to Tallowood’s NBN coverage have purchased within the community and have enrolled their children into Mullumbimby’s Shearwater Steiner School.

Land at Tallowood Ridge is priced from $233,000 for an elevated lot with breezes and killer views.
