The Blenders Blow Residents Away at Birthday Bash

On Saturday, St Luke’s Green celebrated its second anniversary with a concert in St Luke’s church, followed by bubbly and birthday cake in our beautiful community areas. When you look at the tight-knit community who call St Luke’s Green home, it’s hard to believe that our little village has only been open for two years. The strong friendships and community spirit that we witnessed on Saturday, prove why the village is firmly established as the most popular place for seniors in Woolloongabba.

Indulge with Chef Paul

Now that the weather is finally starting to cool down, we can’t help but indulge our sweet tooth every now and then. We asked Paul, our Head Chef at St Luke’s Green and pastry whiz, for his favourite recipe to bake when he feels like treating himself. Personally, we think this delicious brownie recipe is just as good for your wellbeing as a spot of meditation.
