Burke Urban’s Sales and Marketing Director, Olivia Burke, said, “We are thrilled to be bringing our ‘Feel
Good Friday’ Twilight Series back for the Newenham and local Mount Barker community to enjoy in
2020. These events give our community the unique opportunity to relax in our beautiful natural
environment, while showcasing local food, drink and entertainment.”
“Feel Good Fridays are just one piece of what makes Newenham such a special place to live and grow
with your family. They are a great way to start the weekend and shake off the stress of a busy week.
After the twilight session is over, the tree-lined streets guide our residents on a peaceful walk back
home, keeping them surrounded by nature, while the local community can enjoy a leisurely two
kilometre walk along the new Linear Park path back into the Mount Barker town centre,” continued
Newenham is a 150-hectare, 750 home, master-planned community developed by Burke Urban
and will become home to some 2000 residents over the next 10 years. The only master-planned
development in the Adelaide Hills focussing on large blocks, with an average lot size of 734m2, this,
alongside the premium location, the naturally beautiful environment and focus on timeless design,
makes Newenham something special.
“Our community are owner-occupiers who are truly seeking a place to, live, grow and connect with
other people in their community. We are blessed with a beautiful range of natural assets including the
Western Flat creek which runs through the heart of Newenham, hundreds of existing trees, the original
homestead and cottages, plus the authentic heritage and naming of the site,” continued Olivia.
There are also a range of other initiatives which will be delivered in the coming years including the
Newenham Farm and market café, the retail and shopping precinct, and Kings Baptist Grammar
School’s second campus.
“Newenham Adelaide Hills, has been designed to support the health, happiness, and wellbeing of all
who visit or choose to call it home. The only way you can really get a sense of how Newenham is
different from every other development is to visit it for yourself,” Olivia concluded.
