Our Highton retirement village, located only 15 minutes from the heart of Geelong, is selling now. Nestled between parklands and a quaint shopping village, this leafy suburb is a prestigious location featuring scenic hills and the Barwon River. If you live in the area, you’ll know that it’s the ideal setting to embrace everything retirement living has to offer.
You will have the freedom to live the way you want - from independent apartments and villas, and the light touch of a serviced apartment, to residential aged care (also known as low care and high care), and specialist dementia care.
The village will epitomise what it means to live life to the full in retirement. You’ll gain a lifestyle and a community you can thrive in. And for those local to the area, it’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy our village within your local village.
We created this animated video tour so you can have a sneak peek at our beautiful village and the living options available while the village is still under construction.

Highton Village will offer living choices to suit everyone, so residents can live the way they want and blaze their own trails. Our villas and apartments will be light and spacious with well-considered layouts, and have balcony or patio options. For year-round comfort, all apartments will be air conditioned and heated.
If down the track you need more support, we will offer assisted living in a serviced apartment and a full range of residential aged care options. That freedom and flexibility is empowering for residents and knowing care can be dialled up as needed means, quite simply, ‘no worries’. It's all part of what we like to call the Ryman Difference.
Our pioneering approach to retirement living includes resident-friendly terms designed to protect you and your family. Our base weekly fee is fixed for the entire time you occupy your apartment*, and our deferred management fee is capped at 20 percent – one of the lowest in the retirement sector.
These are just some of the ways we’re pioneering a new way of living for a new retirement generation.
*Some conditions apply.
Enjoy all the upsides of living independently in a Ryman village. Easy living, security, plus a huge bonus – the support of a vibrant village community.
Serviced apartments come with support you can count on. A chef-prepared meal, housekeeping – it's great for you and reassuring for your family.
Community is central to the lifestyle so we will offer amenities that encourage that sense of togetherness. The village will offer a café, dining room, bar, hair and beauty salon, and shop.
Retirement is a great time to sharpen your skills on the passions and pastimes that you love. Pursue your interests in the workshop, craft room, pool table, and library.
Incorporate regular activity into your everyday routine or enjoy the camaraderie of a little game time. The village will feature a swimming pool, spa pool, gym and bowling green.
Aged care is not an ‘add on’ at a Ryman village, it is built into the fabric of our villages from the very beginning. It’s comforting for couples and friends to know they can still be near each other even if their health needs are different.
Highton Village will offer a full range of aged care options including residential aged care (low care and high care) and specialist dementia care. Like all aspects of our villages, we constantly look for ways to improve both the aged care we provide and the innovation behind it. Aged care is customised using our myRyman care app and residents love the food in our seasonal Delicious menu, which is prepared fresh on site by village chefs.
Personal attention, warmth and building trusting relationships are all crucial to the customised care we provide at our care centres.
Nurturing and caring dementia care communities. Residents are supported to live in the moment, and to feel kindness, love, and security.
