Giveaway of a Lifetime winner

Giveaway of a Lifetime winner

12 Apr 2017


Congratulations to Kay Hurst – the lucky winner of our Giveaway of a Lifetime competition, in partnership with Fresh Homes and the Willows Shopping Centre.

Kay was the lucky winner of a brand new 3-bedroom house worth over $310,000. The home was designed by multi-award winning Fresh Homes, and is situated at 5 Lizzie Street at Bluewattle – right opposite the newly completed Alfresco Park.

On 18 March, 21 anxious Giveaway of a Lifetime competition finalists lined up at Willows Shopping Centre, a key in each of their hands and one brown door before them. They took it in turns to try their key in the door’s lock. Only one would open it; only one would win the brand new home at Bluewattle.

Kay Hurst waited patiently, as 19 people before her tried their keys without success. Kay stepped up to the door, slid her key in the lock, gave it a twist, and…. “click”. The door unlocked. Confetti fell from the ceiling. The gathered crowd erupted into applause. Kay had won a brand new, 3-bedroom home, built by Fresh Homes at Bluewattle.

We caught up with Kay recently to see how she felt at that moment and how her new home is working out.

How were you feeling as the other finalists before you tried their keys in the door?

I was really quite calm to be honest. My family was much more anxious than I was and it wasn’t until I turned the door knob that it hit me. Because I was number 20, there were only two keys left to choose from by the time I took my pick and I didn’t think it would be me – I can’t even win a chook raffle.

Have you had much of a chance to explore the neighbourhood yet?

Yes. Over the Christmas holidays we took one of my grand-daughters who’s 7 to the park and we were astounded then by how far Bluewattle has come along. My husband, who’s retired now, actually built some of the first homes in Bluewattle.

Congratulations Kay!

Park Naming Competition winner Danni Keogh with Townsville’s Deputy Mayor Cr Les Walker and Bluewattle’s Development Manager Cara Doonan.


The community-nominated names of two new parks at Bluewattle, Rasmussen, were revealed at the official parks opening event, attended by approximately 750 people, on Saturday, 13 August.

Birdwing Park and Alfresco Park were the names chosen from more than 100 ideas entered in a public Park Naming Competition held earlier this year. The two winning names were selected by the Park Naming Committee for their relevance to their respective parks and the way they reflect Bluewattle’s community spirit and natural surrounds.

Melody Taylor, who nominated the name Birdwing Park for the larger of the two community spaces, said her entry had been inspired by the butterfly motifs adorning the top of the 10m tower and slide, as well as the butterfly-shaped climbing structure.

“The park is butterfly-themed, so for me it made sense to nominate the beautiful Birdwing butterfly as its namesake,’ Ms Taylor said.

‘Butterflies can also symbolise transformation and renewal, which was perfect for a new development in one of Townsville’s older suburbs.’

Danni Keogh’s winning suggestion of Alfresco Park represented the second park’s community herb garden and communal long tables, designed to bring everyone together.

‘The description of the park reads like an outdoor garden restaurant. The space is all about creating a fun family-friendly environment surrounded by herbs for everyone to enjoy,’ Ms Keogh said.

‘I felt the name Alfresco reflected the idea of family dining, while also adding a sense of occasion to any picnic or barbecue shared in the park.’

Both Birdwing and Alfresco parks are now open for the public to enjoy and are located off Gambia Drive in Bluewattle, Rasmussen.

Amazing new park at Bluewattle, 10m slide tower!

This August we will be officially opening two new parks at Bluewattle. The larger park is currently under construction, and is positioned on the corner of Bluewattle and Gambia Drive.

It will actually be THE LARGEST at Bluewattle, featuring a 10m tall tower with slides and play equipment, adorned with butterfly decorations. The tower was erected last month, and has already become a local landmark! The park also includes dedicated cross-fit exercise zones with equipment, plus plenty of space for outdoor sports. Drive by and check out the progress. We expect this park to be completed in late July.

The second, smaller park is positioned in the heart of Bluewattle’s latest land release, bounded by Gambia Drive, Lizzie Street and Basil Lane. It includes long communal tables for outdoor dining and a productive arbour, growing fresh herbs for the whole community to enjoy. This park is now complete, so feel free to visit and enjoy a family picnic in the park!
