We are delighted to share with you the progress on site as we build this new masterplanned community from the ground up.

Windermere will remain a hive of activity for the foreseeable future with over $30 million of construction packages awarded in the past several months. Stages 5-8 (circa 200 lots) will be tendered imminently and civil works are forecasted to commence later in the year.

Facing westwards, overlooking Stages 3 and 4, Califam’s excavators are working on the sewer infrastructure.

Civil construction works commenced onsite in early June 2019 for Stages 1-4 (circa 200 lots). This builds on work already completed relating to ‘bulk earthworks’ (making the site level) and construction of the internal sewer network, which connects individual lots to the larger branch sewers.

As we head into winter, inclement weather will reduce construction efficiency onsite, however this has been factored into the overall schedule.


A contractor has been appointed to undertake the Greens Road upgrade and will mobilise in several weeks’ time. The upgrade will involve the construction of a two-lane asphalt road that connects Stages 1 and 3.


The first branch sewer (650m) has been completed by BMD, bringing sewer services to Windermere. In partnership with City West Water, Country Garden Australia are commencing construction of a second branch sewer (1,000m+), which will connect to the existing branch sewer and be located beneath the waterway.


Construction of the waterway and culvert is well progressed with the temporary waterway completed, however, its completion of the culvert is being hampered by wet weather. A new temporary access road will be constructed upon the culvert to facilitate access to the sales gallery.
