True to their name, both Lakeside Lodge and Lakeside Aged Care facility are nestled on the banks of Smyth Lake. A shared gum tree covered park is their boundary fence. Both facilities are striking for their welcoming and relaxed home style and embrace of their natural surroundings. The premium accommodation is handsomely complemented by shady groves, manicured lawns and the lake’s small central island that is home to a variety of birds and waterfowl.
Lakeside Aged Care facility was built in a unique 'cluster' design of three separate houses, each brought together by a central courtyard that serves as the ‘town square’ where residents meet for organised activities or for a chat and a coffee.
A Curtin University study praised this facility as a ‘centre of excellence in aged care'. Lakeside Lodge (hostel) was built separately in 1995 and has many rooms looking out over Lake Smyth and the park.
