Halcyon came to Aruga with a goal: to be the national leader in lifestyle communities. There was just one problem – nobody knew lifestyle communities existed.
Aruga crafted a bespoke media and content strategy that took advantage of the abundance of homeowner stories and life experiences at Halcyon communities, from local heroes to quirky characters.
In 2021, media coverage highlights included The Australian, The Courier-Mail, 7NEWS Queensland, 9NEWS Gold Coast, My City Logan and Park Ridge News.
Aruga took Halcyon from the property pages to the front pages, bringing a human aspect to the designer features and desirable lifestyle amenities and highlighting that life truly begins at Halcyon.
