Village residents: would you enjoy a trip to Port Macquarie?

Published: 31 May 2023

We’re planning a great day out for residents living in NVC Group’s retirement villages.

If you live in Lakeside Gardens at Macksville or Riverside Gardens at Nambucca Heads, you are invited to attend a group bus tour to Port Macquarie on Friday 30 June.

It’s a great chance to visit this picturesque, regional city and have a fun day out with your neighbours.

“I’m really looking forward to coordinating this fun day out for village residents,” Lifestyle Living Village Coordinator Helen Funnell said.

“Port Macquarie is truly a lovely spot and attendees will be able to choose what they do. I imagine most people will want to walk along the Hastings River, but if you would prefer, you can simply visit Port’s lovely retail shopping precincts.

“Everyone will meet up for a long lunch together.”

It is proposed the day out will start at 8.30am for Riverside Gardens independent living residents, and Lakeside Gardens residents will be picked up by the bus at 9.15am. The bus will then travel south to Port Macquarie, arriving approximately 10.30am. Departure will be at 3.30pm.

The cost of the day will be approximately $17 per person* and should you wish to attend, please contact Ms Funnell by 22 June 2023 on (02) 6598 5000 or 0472 876 127. She can be emailed at

*Estimated cost only. The known cost will depend on the number of residents wishing to attend as this will effect the cost of the bus.
