Hello and welcome to Windermere’s construction update for July, from your team here in Mambourin.

I’m sure that you were all very excited this month when the news of stages three and four having titled got announced. Not long now and we will have our first members of the Windermere community moving into their new homes!

We have temporarily closed our Mambourin sales gallery in line with the Victorian Stage 4 restrictions. We are open by appointment only for the health and safety of our team and our community. Supporting each other and being positive is our best way forward to staying well. We will beat this together so that we can come out even brighter and stronger on the other side 🙂

What you need to know                                                                                                               

We are still available to you online, over the phone or via video call.  We’re working with fewer resources due to the restrictions but working as fast as we can so please bear with us if you are reaching out. We will always get back to you!

We are still online.  Chat to us in the chatbox on the website, send us an email or call us on 1300 008 555. We’re here to help!

The best way to get the quickest answer is to give us a call from 11 am to 5 pm, or via the website chatbox.                                                                     

We hope that you and your family are adjusting well to the present days in isolation, and staying well through the COVID-19 pandemic.
