Plenty of fun at Re­gatta Wa­ters

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

IT WAS all sun­shine and smiles at the Re­gatta Wa­ters life­style com­mu­nity fun day on Sun­day.

About 200 people at­tended the event jam-packed with jump­ing cas­tles, live mu­sic, quad bike rides, tram­po­lines and a bar­beque and beer tent.

Ray White Whit­sun­day project mar­ket­ing agent Steve Marks said for him the day was about com­mu­nity en­gage­ment.

“It’s a beau­ti­ful es­tate here and the day was for people who are not just buy­ing but the people in the com­mu­nity who wanted to come and have a look,” he said.

The fun day in­cluded a putting com­pe­ti­tion with over $165,000 cash and prizes up for grabs.

Lo­cal boy, nine-year-old Daniel Ar­riguetti won $5000 when putting on be­half of his par­ents Ar­lene and Al Ar­riguetti who have bought a block of land at Re­gatta Wa­ters. Mr Marks said the day was well sup­ported by the com­mu­nity.

“It was a great re­sult. The best thing about the day was that they were fam­i­lies who were sit­ting by the lake, feed­ing the ducks and soak­ing up the Whit­sun­day way of life,” he said.

At the Re­gatta Wa­ters es­tate, 26 of the first 49 blocks have been sold and eight houses are cur­rently un­der con­struc­tion.

“The project has res­onated with people who live close by and want to stay in the area while up­grad­ing their home and life­style,” Mr Marks said.

“At the cur­rent rate of progress, we’ll be wel­com­ing our first res­i­dents in a mat­ter of months,” he said.
