Living and working on the Central Coast

The Central Coast offers a calm respite from the urban frenzy of cities like Sydney, paired with the scenic beauty of endless beaches and community warmth. And with three Keyton retirement villages located along the Central Coast, there are also plenty of exciting career opportunities waiting for you.

The Central Coast lifestyle

The Central Coast is known for its tranquil environment, stunning coastlines, extensive bush trails and close-knit community vibe. The area features everything from quiet beaches to lush parks and active communities. Living here allows you to enjoy a lifestyle that is vibrant and relaxing, with plenty of opportunities for outdoor adventures, cultural events and community participation - the perfect backdrop if you are looking for work-life balance. No wonder that the Central Coast is rapidly becoming the go-to destination for many. 

Here are 3 reasons why moving to the Central Coast is a great idea:

  1. Waterfront living: Its expansive beaches and scenic waterfronts offer an unparalleled lifestyle for water enthusiasts and nature lovers alike, creating a serene oasis just moments from your doorstep. 
  2. Community minded: The sense of connection and community is palpable; residents share a tight-knit bond, fostering an environment where new friendships are easily made, and neighbors feel more like family. 
  3. Rising property market: The property market on the Central Coast presents a unique opportunity. With more affordable options than larger metropolitan areas like Sydney and a growing appreciation for the region's natural beauty, investing in a home here not only means investing in your quality of life but also in an asset that holds promising potential for the future. 

Together, these factors make the Central Coast the place of the moment for both individuals and families looking for a refreshing change of pace.

As Village Manager of Lakeside Retirement Village in beautiful Bonnells Bay, Al Noman has experienced firsthand the benefits of working and residing on the Central Coast. "I moved to the Central Coast in 2021 and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else," he says. "The region is very green, close to beaches, less traffic - all of that gives me a pretty high standard of living."

Al appreciates the opportunity to lead a balanced life—enjoying the local community's warmth and engaging in work that positively impacts the residents. His role also allows him to interact directly with the community, while also being close to the things he loves most: The beach and the bush. "A good part of my life circles around being at the beach or spending time in the bush, fishing. Living and working here gives me a great work-life balance. The Central Coast is also a good environment for the kids with great schools and an award-winning University in the region," he says.

Choose a lifestyle that suits you

Kam Basi, National Sustainability Manager for Keyton, has spent eight years with the company, bringing sustainability to the forefront of its operations. Her day-to-day tasks are diverse and fulfilling, involving everything from project management to educating teams across various villages. She used to live in Sydney, but made the move up to the Central Coast to get away from the busy-ness of big city life.

"I love that I get to enjoy the peace and calmness of the Central Coast, the friendly community and the beautiful beaches away from the busy-ness of Sydney while still being able to work for a large national company like Keyton," Kam says. "Working for a larger organisation has given me the breadth of experience and knowledge that I need to stay challenged from a work perspective, but my lifestyle is not compromised by having to live in the city, with higher cost of living and busier, fast paced lifestyle. I get to walk my dog at the local, quiet beach first thing in the morning before starting my work day. I feel very lucky!"

"My lifestyle is not compromised by having to live in the city"
