There’s plenty to love about the financial model at Living Choice Murray Bridge - affordable homes and no stamp duty, deferred management or exit fees. You own your home, live independently and you enter into a secure Site Agreement to occupy the land on which your home sits.
Each fortnight you pay a site fee which includes site rental, council, water and sewerage rates, rubbish collection, emergency service levies, maintenance and running costs of all common facilities, including the Country Club, gardening services to shared garden areas and staff costs.
You are protected by the Residential Parks Act 2007 and a Site Agreement of up to 50 years. You may also be eligible for Federal Government Rental Assistance to subsidise the site fee and ongoing government concessions via Residential Parks Energy Concessions and Cost of Living concessions.
Sport and Recreation
If you love golf and green space, Living Choice Murray Bridge ticks all the boxes. The adjacent Murray Bridge Golf Club is widely recognised as one of the best country courses in the state.

Two new golf holes, designed by leading golf course architect, Neil Crafter, were recently added as part of a $2-million golf course upgrade.
There are plenty of other sporting clubs nearby, including bowling, tennis, cricket, rowing, football, basketball and a swimming centre.
Riverfront reserves are well-equipped to provide for river-based activities. Facilities include boat ramps, play spaces, barbeques, shelters, house boat moorings and lots of open space to throw a frisbee or kick a footy. Places where people can access the river include: Avoca Dell, Bells Landing, Long Island Reserve, Sturt Reserve, Swanport Reserve, Thiele Reserve and Woodlane.
