Homeowners across the Serenitas’ national network of over 50s lifestyle villages were invited to share a photo taken of the natural landscapes of their communities, local wildlife, or treasured moments shared with friends to showcase what makes living in a Serenitas Community so spectacular.

Janice entered the competition with a photo of a rare Cairns Birdwing Butterfly, which she often found fluttering around at the zoo she worked at.

“I was a zookeeper for many years, I have always had an interest in wildlife photography and was surprised the rare butterfly made its way up to Mareeba,” she said.

The competition received 96 entries across all villages, with the top 12 entries receiving a $100 WISH gift card as well as being featured in the Serenitas Community Calendar for 2023, which will be distributed in December as a gift to all homeowners
