If you want to know about retirement living, over 55's retirement villages, over 50's manufactured home villages and rental accommodation for seniors in Australia and New Zealand, you've come to the right place. This website is a resource for prospective retirement village residents and their families, with information about independent living (self care) and serviced apartment (assisted living) alternatives.

To help you quickly find what you are looking for, our search engine lets you search our directory for retirement villages, retirement housing, retirement homes and retirement communities that fall into the following categories:

  1. villages and communities that offer homes to buy (ie where an initial purchase price or other ingoing contribution is required)
  2. villages and communities that offer homes to rent (ie where a standard weekly, fortnightly or monthly rental payment is required).

Depending on what you are looking for, just click on the appropriate tab ("Buy" or "Rent") above the map of Australia and New Zealand. Then click on the jurisdiction (State, Territory or NZ) that is of most interest to you. You will be taken to a search page where you can further refine your search by selecting a particular region or even a particular suburb or town.

As good management is the key to a good retirement village, you can also search our directory by Operator. Just click on the "Operator" tab above the map of Australia and New Zealand and then click on the appropriate jurisdiction. To find more information about particular retirement village operators, just click on their logos wherever they appear on the website.

If retirement villages are appropriate for your circumstances, you can download and review our Senior Living Guide and Departure Fee Guide, or you can review our retirement village information pages: Overview, Top 10 Tips, Reasons for Moving, Complicating Features, Services and Levels of Care, Financial Considerations Including Departure Fees, Rental Accommodation, Pets, Legal Structures and Legislation.

You should be aware that finding rental accommodation in retirement villages can be difficult, particularly in the main metropolitan centres like Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Hobart, Canberra and Darwin.

If you're not sure what form of seniors housing is appropriate for your requirements, you can start by reviewing our Accommodation and Care Alternatives - What's Right for You? information page.
