Thank you for your interest in Woodlea.
To welcome the first residents at Woodlea in style, each home purchased* will include a front landscaping package in the contract.
Three wonderful garden palettes are yours for the choosing, ranging from the Classsic, to the Contemporary to the Woodland. Each one, though different in style and plant types, is designed to be sustainable and suitable for the Woodlea location.
Barry Murphy, Director of MDG Landscape Architects and a vital member of the Woodlea team, has used the existing and striking natural surrounds of Woodlea to inspire the design and arrangement of individual neighbourhoods and public spaces.
These aspects, from the nearby River Redgum woodland, to Kororoit Creek and Deanside Wetlands, also combine with modern architectural trends to influence the domestic landscape packages you can choose from. Your new garden will be an adornment to the street.
*Plant selections come with a mix of varieties and species depending which palette you choose. Illustrations are indicative only.
Available in both warm and cool plant and paving palettes, this is the perfect accent for a truly modern home. Choices include everything from verdant Dwarf Acacia to dramatic Bird of Paradise and gorgeous Red Flowering Gums.Pebbles, steppers and gravels are included.
Some of your favourite traditional and flowering varieties are provided here. The packages include pretty, fragrant Lavender, hardy Rosemary, Carpet Roses, Magnolias and Gardenias. Complementary pebbles, steppers and gravels are included.
Embrace the indigenous surrounds of Woodlea with plants such as Banksias, Grevilleas, Myrtle, and Bush Cherry, depending on the palette you select. Nearby heritage sites are truly brought home when you choose stylish bluestone gravel and steppers.
Bernadette loves taking her four kids to the wonderful Woodlea parks and therefore it is appropriate that we spoke to her in the Stage 1 park. Hers is a mixed-nationality household and their favourite family culinary experience reflects her husband’s Filipino culture. Banana leafs for plates and fingers, not forks has their kids in messy food heaven! Link to full bio here: http://bit.ly/facesofwoodlea #facesofwoodlea #knowyourcommunity
Petr is from Vladivostok Russia and is married to Laetitia, who was born in Belgium. They live in Woodlea with their two young daughters, who by their parents definition reflect both Eastern and Western culture. Petr tells us of a Russian tradition that is handed down from generation to generation when moving into a new house. With so many doing just that at Woodlea, we recommend new residents watching Petr tell us about the Russian symbolic cat “house keeper”, that watches over the new residence and helps to maintain household happiness.

Raj and Melody went all out to wear clothing that denotes their cultural heritage, from Mumbai India. Their Indian experience is of a glorious and multi-tiered society, where food culture is king. Raj and Melody have helped build our understanding of traditional festivals and celebrations that are important to their original community, that now cut across religious and cultural divisions.

Emmanuel “Manny” was born in Malta and came to Australia as a child in the post-war migrant intake of 1954. He tells of an era of simplicity and joy amongst the challenges of life in a new land. Woodlea recognizes that a balanced community has representation across the ages and Manny shows us that living in a new community with many young families helps to keep a spring in one’s step.

Introducing Gustavo: Gustavao (“Gus”) and his young family are a mix of Latin European and Latin American blood, and from his account of their lives at home they have found a wonderful blend. Gus is from El Salvador and his wife is from Italy. A Latin home would not be complete without a love of joyous, uplifting music and wonderful food, designed to share with neighbours, friends and family.

Introducing Chris - one of the very first Woodlea residents, with a passion for engagement with those around him and the Woodlea community in general. Chris was selected as being representative of “traditional” Australian caucasian background, but learning of his Maltese descent reminded us that it is only the indigenous Australians who aren’t derived from somewhere else!
