As part of Sekisui House’s 10th anniversary in Australia, the company hosted a “Resident Big Bash Cricket Day” at the company’s masterplanned community, The Hermitage, Gledswood Hills.

Over 350 residents took part in the free event that was held at Gledswood Hills Reserve. This was the second community cricket event hosted by Sekisui House at The Hermitage and proved to be one of their best events yet.



Community events have played an integral role in bringing The Hermitage community together, creating a friendly and connected neighbourhood. Sport is an ideal vehicle to draw communities together in a friendly, competitive manner. The cricket event allowed both players and spectators of all ages to be entertained for the entire afternoon, whilst providing the opportunity to meet new friends in a relaxed atmosphere.

“The Hermitage, Gledswood Hills has been a flagship project for Sekisui House since launching in 2012 and exemplifies the company’s principles of creating sustainable communities that work in harmony with their natural surrounds . We would like to thank our customers for their trust and support, and it is because of you that we are enjoying a milestone celebration of 10 years in Australia.

“Over 1,100 properties have now been sold at The Hermitage, with an eventual yield of over 2,500. The forecast project value is estimated at over $1.1 billion. Approximately 3,000 residents currently call The Hermitage home. The development boasts 40 hectares of beautifully landscaped parklands and reserves, a 120-hectare golfing precinct, as well as 50 kilometres of cycle ways and pedestrian paths, encouraging connectivity within The Hermitage and the broader community.”


The Big Bash Cricket Day featured six teams who vied for several trophies, some including Grand Final Player of the Match, Series Best and Fairest, Classic Catch and Encouragement Award winner. On hand for spectators were jumping castles, food trucks, roaming entertainers, a DJ and guest MC, Vic Lorusso.
