Avid Residential Group
Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia
With six leaf national EnviroDevelopment certification, Harmony brings people together in a connected community lifestyle in the heart of the Sunshine Coast.
Located in the lush green hinterland of the Sunshine Coast, and only a short distance from the beach, the Harmony Estate in Palmview is a master planned community which encompasses the heart and soul of beachside living.
Harmony’s design embraces the Sunshine Coast’s enviable lifestyle and is home to Queensland’s first Grand Linear Park. Spanning more than five hectares and running the length of 10 football fields, it will connect residents to Harmony’s 60km network of pedestrian path and cycle ways.

Harmony has achieved ‘Six Leaf’ national EnviroDevelopment certification in master planned communities from the Urban Development Institute of Australia. Meeting the six leaf criteria is critical to creating sustainable communities that will benefit the environment long term.
