Facilities for residents

Welcome to Hunterford

The "Welcome to Hunterford" newsletter is a 4 page document providing useful information on the facilities and community services available for residents of the Hunterford Estate. It is mainly intended for new residents and Estate Agents are encouraged to give copies to new owners and tenants. Details of the major facilities are also given below.

Community Facilities

These are for the exclusive use of owners and occupiers of Hunterford. Owners and occupiers may invite guests to use the facilities but must accompany them at all times. See specific information on the

Common key for the community facilities

Each Lot on the estate plus each apartment is entitled to have a community facilities key which will provide access to the swimming pool, tennis court and the 2 community centre toilets. These keys have been issued to lots requesting them. A lot may obtain a 2nd key or a replacement for a lost key for $50 with a limit of 2 keys per premises. Keys may be obtained from our Managing Agent (property owners) or from estate agents in the case of tenants.

If using one of the toilets, please close the door so that it locks when you leave.

Community Centre

Community Centre

The Community Centre can only be used between the hours of 8.00am and 11.00pm.   Residents can check the availability of the Club House by sending an email to Check Availability

The maximum number of persons permitted to use the centre for a private function is 30. All bookings need to have a Booking Form completed and must be accompanied by a non-refundable fee of $20 in cash. Additionally a security deposit, being a cheque for $250, shall be paid when the Centre is booked. Both these payments and the booking form must be lodged with the Secretary at least 7 days prior to the booking date. The deposit shall only be refundable if the Centre is left in a clean and tidy condition. If not satisfactorily cleaned or if damage occurs, the security deposit shall be used to remedy the situation.  

Residents may, with notice, book the Community Centre through the Executive Committee Secretary for functions which are open to all residents. No fees apply for these bookings.  Residents may also request the Centre to be opened in order to play table tennis. Please contact The Executive Committee  Secretary.

When the Community Centre is booked, a set of keys will be issued to the hirer, being a key for the Centre, 2 BBQ keys and a community facility key (common key for the swimming pool, tennis court and toilets).


BarbequeTwo gas barbeques are available for the use of residents. They require the use of a key to start them. As they automatically switch off after 10 minutes, it is necessary to keep operating the key at regular intervals.

There is also a power point located at the rear of each barbeque to enable another appliance or jug to be used on the barbeque.

No bookings are required, although the barbeques may be booked in conjunction with a function in the Community Centre.

After using the barbeques, please make sure they are cleaned, the lid replaced and the area tidied.
