Welcome to Watermark
Saying Welcome to Watermark is just the start for me because as soon as you set foot in this village you automatically feel completely at home. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be the Manager at the most beautiful Retirement Village in the Riverina.
Our facilities here are first class and the location is fantastic. We are only a stone’s throw from the city centre, the beautiful walks along the Murrumbidgee and the main shopping precinct in Wagga Wagga.
We have a diverse range of people from all walks of life and the community spirit among the residents is so good, that I feel I am part of the extended family that we have here. It is a pleasure to come to work.

One of our residents enjoys the lifestyle here so much, he even wrote a poem about it:
We have just moved into Watermark;
I should have come here years ago
But being a procrastinator
I tend to let things go.
Although it’s worked out for the better,
As we have the place we want:
Two bedrooms on the ground floor,
With a courtyard right out front.
The view is quite inspiring.
With churches all around.
And some Tuesday nights
The pipe band and bell towers burst aloud with sound.
Location wise it’s handy,
Only two blocks from the shops
In a quiet street near the river
And walking tracks … there’s lots.
The complex is a good size:
Not too big or not too small.
There’s no room for expansion
And that seems to suit us all!
The residents are so friendly
Everyone does their own thing.
And if you have a sense of humour
You will certainly fit right in.
So when it comes to “Lifestyle Living”
All the boxes get a tick.
We are just so happy living here
It’s like “heaven on a stick”!

"The decision to move to Watermark was one of the best I have made. Having had my eye on the complex since its inception, the chance to come here was too good to miss. The atmosphere, acceptance, activities and friendships are there for the taking, one can join in or not depending on how you feel. Watermark's Central position is exceptional."
