Independent, active living without home chores or cares
A move to RFBI Hawkins Masonic Village allows you to forget home maintenance, gardening, lawn mowing and the countless tasks that become increasingly burdensome so you can focus on the fun things in life..
Here, you will be able to enjoy a lifestyle as active as you please doing the things you love doing, and then relax and enjoy your surroundings.
Vibrant community close to the lake
RFBI Hawkins Masonic Village nestles in quiet bushland in the outer Newcastle suburb of Edgeworth, near beautiful Lake Macquarie, on 16 hectares of land donated by Albert Hawkins.
You will be enchanted by the beautifully maintained gardens, outdoor areas and courtyards overlooking the tranquil views. The village is just 3km from the F3 Freeway, 3km to Edgeworth shopping centre and 20km from the Newcastle city centre.
The men’s shed, open to all male residents, provides activities such as woodwork, metalwork, welding, toy making, model railway tasks and social functions.
There is a 20-seater village bus for shopping and sightseeing trips.
