Welcome to our exclusive Residents’ Clubhouse
Enjoy your new resort style living
Kensington Gardens’ spacious, brilliantly designed Clubhouses at Shepparton and Albury feature fully integrated activity areas. When you live here with us, you’re welcome to enjoy the Clubhouse as an extension of your own home whenever you like.
The Clubhouse is open 7 days for your convenience, with the exception of the bar which is open 6 days a week. You’ll never be stuck looking for something to do!
Take part in a wide range of activities in the auditorium
Something you’re sure to notice is the seemingly never-ending array of activities that take place in the Residents’ Clubhouse.
Our Kensington Gardens residents gather here for indoor croquet, indoor bowls, table tennis, Tai Chi, and even line dancing at Shepparton!
You’re welcome to join in with the regular card groups – both serious and casual – that take place in the dining area and library.
And if you hear a strange buzzing sound coming from the Clubhouse one day, don’t be alarmed. That’s just the radio control helicopter enthusiasts gathering for some indoor challenges and fun!
Savour a cold drink in the Members’ Bar
One very popular feature of the Clubhouse is our Member’s Bar, open six nights a week for residents’ enjoyment. It’s not a “BYO” joint – it’s fully staffed with professional bartenders and wait staff who make sure everyone has a great time.
The Kensington Gardens Social Club holds regular events at the Members’ Bar, from dinner dances and musical entertainment to “big ticket” events such as the Melbourne Cup and the AFL Grand Final.
You’re also likely to find a quiet game of darts, billiards or pool going on most nights. It’s the perfect place to socialise with good friends – or to meet new ones!
Relax in the lounge and dining room
Our lounge and dining area adjoining the auditorium and bar are a hub for smaller events. There’s a fully outfitted commercial kitchen available for external caterers to use. Residents are also welcome to book the dining room or auditorium for private functions, such as birthday parties, anniversaries and the like.
Part of the licensed area, the residents’ lounge is a wonderfully welcoming place to catch up with friends, or simply read a favourite book in the air-conditioning. And in winter, the open fire makes the lounge the perfect cozy spot to relax.
Take in a movie in our ‘Gold Class’ style cinema
Enjoy a movie night or matinee session in our spectacular 18 seat cinema. You can bring your own favourite movie to watch up on the big screen, or enjoy whatever’s playing on the night.
You’re welcome to book ahead for a private screening and bring along the family. You can even watch your favourite big sporting event in the comfort of our cinema’s leather seats – just imagine the Grand Final up on the big screen!
Enjoy a quieter pastime in the library
If you feel like taking it easy, the Clubhouse can cater for you there too. The well-stocked library is the ideal place to kick back and enjoy reading a book from your favourite genre. There’s also a dedicated meeting room that’s perfect for social club and resident committee meetings.
If you’re the arty type, you’re welcome to join one of the sewing, crochet, painting and photography groups. Kensington Gardens residents take pride in creating craft items for sale for fundraising – in fact, over the years they’ve poured thousands of dollars into the local communities of Albury and Shepparton.
Keep fit and stay healthy in your favourite way
In retirement, it’s so important to stay active and keep fit & strong. When you live at Kensington Gardens, there’s no need to pay extra for a gym membership! You’ll have everything you need to keep fit, available close to your home.
The Clubhouse’s fully equipped gymnasium features all the gear you’ll ever need – including weights, treadmills, steppers, exercise bikes, and rowing machines.
If you prefer to keep fit by getting active in the water, you can enjoy the indoor swimming pool that’s heated for your comfort all year round. There’s also a heated king-size spa pool if you’d rather just kick back and relax!
Directly adjacent to the Clubhouse you’ll find residents outside enjoying regular games on the croquet court. It’s ideal for enjoying some light exercise (nothing too strenuous!) outdoors, while you catch up with friends.
At Kensington Gardens Albury you can even “ruin a perfectly good walk” by playing a round or two of golf at the adjacent Thurgoona Country Club Course.
Entertain friends at our alfresco BBQ areas
There’s nothing quite like a barbie or party in the Great Outdoors to bring people together!
The undercover BBQ area is a beautiful spot to relax and socialise. As a Kensington Gardens resident you’re welcome to enjoy it as an extension of your home – or even book the area to host your own private event.
It’s part of the licensed space, so you’ll have direct access to bar service for a cold beverage or two.
You’ll often find our residents catching up here throughout the day or during the evening for a cup of coffee or perhaps a cold glass of wine.
You’re welcome to check out the Residents’ Clubhouse yourself
If you’d like to get a taste of everything you’ll enjoy at our Clubhouse when you live at Kensington Gardens, you’re welcome to join us for a one-on-one tour.
We’d be happy to show you the facilities, and who knows, you’ll probably be able to catch up for a chat with a few of our residents to get the story straight from the horse’s mouth!
To see Kensington Gardens for yourself, arrange your personal tour by calling us today or get in touch online to book a time to come in and visit us.
