Make Armstrong Green home

Nearly 40 residents have made Armstrong Green their community of choice, soaking up coastal life in one four luxe coastal villa designs on offer.

Armstrong Green is RCA Village’s newest fab development in Armstrong Creek, a peaceful hamlet in Greater Geelong with a population under 5000.

Village manager Sue Farrar says that, as the facilities take shape around them, the first group of residents to call Armstrong Green home is a very social bunch.

“We mightn’t have our beautiful Clubhouse just yet, but there’s still plenty to do,” she says. “We’ve fitted out one of the double garages as a temporary clubroom, where residents enjoy Happy Hour and other activities.

“Residents have set up a bridge club and chat groups, as well as pizza nights and fish ‘n’ chips Fridays which visiting grandkids get into.”

An event will soon be held to celebrate the one year anniversary of the first residents moving in, with a lunch being held at a local venue.


Just five minutes down the road, there’s the Connewarre State Wildlife Reserve, where 150 bird species fly over the largest remnant vegetation on the Bellarine Peninsula, but it’s not all about bushwalks and twitching.

Fishing, windsurfing and canoeing on Lake Connewarre give active visiting families plenty to keep them happy. They can kick-start their days with a gorgeous brekkie at Warralily Cockatoo in the heart of Armstrong Creek, or finish their day with a dinner that ranges through gourmet pizzas, modern-Aus sharing plates and mains. Kids are made welcome and well catered for.

Great coastal towns surround Armstrong Green, so ducking out for a game of golf (Barwon Heads has some of the finest in Victoria), tucking into gourmet food and sampling local wines is a breeze.

Barwon Heads is just 10 minutes away by car, Torquay is 15, and Ocean Grove 20. Should the ‘bigger smoke’ call, Geelong is only 20 minutes away.

Closer to home, Warralily Shopping Centre is practically next door to the village, while other shops, health providers and transport links are also just minutes away.

Particularly once the outstanding facilities promised at Armstrong Green come to fruition, this will be a mighty fine place for active, independent people to set up a mighty fine life.

Stage three has been released, with “the kettle on” every day at the sales office. Currently there are four villas open (including Barwon, pictured) for display and inspections are welcome. Call Karen or Linda on 1800 777 898 or just drop in.
