Situated just minutes from the Casuarina shopping precinct, Royal Darwin Hospital, northern beaches, airport and golf course, Breezes Muirhead is the only masterplanned community in Darwin’s northern suburbs.
Developed by DHA, Breezes Muirhead has won numerous prestigious awards for environmental excellence, innovative design and masterplanned development.
The community has been cleverly planned to suit the local climate with strategically aligned street layouts capturing prevailing cross flow breezes and sweeping shaded spaces for natural cooling.
Local facilities include parks and sporting facilities, and a great choice of primary and secondary schools close by. The contemporary neighbourhood incorporates 1,150 residential lots and is expected to be fully developed by mid 2018.
Breezes Muirhead is a sustainable community which is planned and built to seamlessly integrate with Darwin’s unique tropical climate. Providing climatically sensitive, contemporary homes, within a richly vegetated native landscape, Breezes Muirhead has been innovatively designed to include:
– Breezeways: staggered homesites help catch the prevailing cooling breezes
– Greenways: wide blocks allow for front, side and back yards
– Street layouts that maximise shade and the circulation of fresh air
– House designs and design guidelines tailored to suit the tropical climate
– Extensive open green space, parklands and neighbourhood pocket-parks
– All homes located within approximately 400m of a local park or recreation space
