New village proposed for the north

Ryman's proposed village on Gaffney Street will be located close to public transport and is only a short distance from the impressive Pentridge Village precinct. We're also planning to build retail shops at the village, so you'll have everything you need at your fingertips.

If you’re after a little tranquility, Coburg Lake Reserve is just a short walk from the village – perfect for afternoon strolls or outings with the grandchildren who will love the nearby Doug Hull Adventure Park.

Inside the village, you’ll enjoy an easy, fulfilled lifestyle, while outside the village the local area and surrounding areas offer a bounty of convenient shopping and amenities – Sydney Road shops, Pentridge Village - which includes a shopping centre, cinema, art gallery and much more. Plus, Melbourne Airport is merely a 15-minute drive away.

As a Ryman village, the proposed Coburg North Village will offer living choices to suit everyone with modern yet timeless apartments and for those that require a little extra support, serviced apartments. Upon completion, the village will also offer a state-of-the-art aged-care centre that includes low care, high care and specialist dementia care. So, you can feel reassured knowing that if your needs change, we can continue looking after you in the same village community close to your partner and friends.

You’ll also enjoy top-notch amenities such as a café, heated indoor swimming pool and spa, hair and beauty salon and cinema – to name just a few. Coburg North Village will be a place where you can live life to the full.

Ryman Pioneers Freedom


Coburg North 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, 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 apartments 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.


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.


It's hard to put your finger on why Ryman villages just feel different. For the inside knowledge, check out our guide.

Pioneers Care


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.

Our Coburg North 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.
