The best decision I ever made was to come to Yernga six years ago.

It’s a very social community and everyone is welcome to get involved or arrange social events. I’ve met a lot of new friends here. We have a social gathering every Wednesday afternoon and in the summer we do that outdoors because we’ve got beautiful outdoor furniture, an umbrella and barbecue. We also play board games in the hall every Tuesday, get together monthly for a pizza and movie night, have a morning tea and guest speak or performer monthly. We also have beautiful gardens, including a vegetable garden where we grow pumpkin, herbs, tomatoes. When the pumpkin is harvested we have an event in the hall and have soup and a movie.
