Important things
During the current environment and the changing restrictions, we realised that being able to be close to and interacting with people is important. Human connection, it is the one core human need we have all grown up with yet, it’s the one fact of life we haven’t paid a lot of attention to. At the height of ‘quarantining’, it was senior Australians who felt that more acutely. Not only were people not able to get out to socialise and some were reducing their home care supports, but families and friends were making fewer visits as well.
The OASIS Peakhurst has value built-in for buyers.
Starting at only $680,000*, your lifestyle at The OASIS Peakhurst is becoming more affordable, with space-smart residences at equally cost-effective prices.

Human connection. It’s the one, core human need we’ve all grown up with yet, it’s the one fact of life we haven’t paid a lot of attention to. Coming out of self-isolation and social distancing, however, we’re realising that being able to be close to and interacting with people is what we’ve missed most.
