Imagine a retirement village situated in the prestigious suburb of Highett that offers living and aged-care options within the same village community. That’s the retirement lifestyle we'll offer at our Bert Newton Village.
Situated on Graham Road, our Bert Newton Village will be the perfect option if you're looking to downsize in luxury, without compromising on location. The village will be only 15km southeast of Melbourne’s CBD, and is just a short distance from Highett train station, local shopping and Southland.
Within the village, you’ll enjoy a range of amenities such as a heated indoor swimming pool, café, hair and beauty salon and cinema. The village will also be set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens.
Come celebrate the completion of our Stage 3 apartment building with us! You’re invited to tour our display apartment and chat with our wonderful residents. Join us for light refreshments and seize the opportunity to join this flourishing community. Santa will also be stopping by for a visit so come and snap a pic with the grandkids. Don’t miss out on this exciting day!
Bert Newton Village will offer living choices to suit everyone, so residents can live the way they want and blaze their own trails. Our apartments will be light and spacious with well-considered layouts as well as 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 apartments and a comprehensive 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 resident-friendly terms are 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.
*Some conditions apply.
Community is central to the lifestyle so we will offer amenities that encourage that sense of togetherness, such as 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, billiard room, and library.
Incorporate regular activity into your everyday routine or enjoy the camaraderie of a little game time. Amenities will include a swimming pool, spa pool and gym.
Jennett McGaw - Ryman independent resident
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.
Assisted-living apartments come with support you can count on. A chef-prepared meal, housekeeping – it's great for you and reassuring for your family.
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.
Bert Newton Village will offer a comprehensive 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.
You'll be able to treat yourself to a pamper session in our hair and beauty salon or a sweet treat in the shop.
Lounge and dining areas will provide spaces to relax and enjoy mealtimes. The food tastes great and the social interaction is good for the soul.
Tranquil indoor and outdoor spaces dedicated to our care residents will allow you to relax and meet with family and friends.

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.
Only a three minute drive from Westfield Southland which has a vast selection of retail, restaurants and experiences.
About a 10 minute drive to the beautiful Sandringham beach where you can enjoy a walk along the beach or grab a bite to eat at one of the local cafes.
Buses at the doorstep and only a four minute walk to the Highett train station.
Each Ryman village is named in honour of a Kiwi or Aussie trailblazer: Anthony Wilding, Lady Diana Isaac, Evelyn Page. They pushed further and set the bar high for others to aspire to. In creating communities that challenge the expectations of ageing, Ryman villages are also setting the bar high. They’re demonstrating that a retirement lifestyle brimming with new experiences, connections and fulfilment is something we should aspire to. Our Aussie and Kiwi namesakes represent the measure of inspiration, while Ryman villages represent the measure of retirement living.
Bert Newton (1938-2021)
Melbourne born and bred Bert Newton was one of Australia’s most enduring and loved show biz icons.
A pioneer of television and radio, Bert first captured the imaginations of Australians while working in radio broadcasting, primarily as an announcer, before becoming a star of television during its inception in 1957.
Bert’s broad grin, wide face (which would later earn him the nickname ‘Moonface’), and nimble wit were an instant hit and by 1959 he traded his role as compere of The Late Show for regular appearances on Graham Kennedy’s hit show In Melbourne Tonight. The comedy pair’s chemistry was instant, and the men would go on to become Australia’s most loved television duo.
For the next four decades Bert’s infectious humour and beaming smile was rarely absent from household screens throughout the country, as he hosted a slew of Australia’s most popular variety and late-night programs.
Bert’s legacy will always be synonymous with Australia’s night of nights, the Logies, which he hosted a record 19 times.
While he was an adored host of the awards, Bert himself was a quadruple Gold Logie winner and Logie Hall of Fame inductee.
In 1979 Bert was made a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE), and in 2006, a Member of the Order of Australia (AM).
Bert is survived by his wife, Patti, his children, Matthew and Lauren, and six grandchildren.
