Don’t wait too long! Visit a village this week and see how you could start living your dream retirement lifestyle.
Weary Dunlop village offers living choices to suit everyone, so residents can live the way they want and blaze their own trails. Our apartments are light and spacious with well-considered layouts, and have balcony or patio options. For year-round comfort, all apartments are air conditioned and heated.
If down the track you need more support, we 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 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 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. Spend time 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 include a swimming pool, spa pool, terrace, gym and bowling green.

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.
Weary Dunlop Village offers a 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.
Treat yourself to a pamper session in our hair and beauty salon or a sweet treat in the shop.

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.
Sir Edward “Weary” Dunlop was an Australian surgeon who is renowned for his leadership and courage while being held prisoner by the Japanese during World War II.
He was born in Victoria in 1907 and trained first as a pharmacist and then as a doctor. He was also an outstanding rugby player, and played for the 1932 Wallabies side that took the Bledisloe Cup from the All Blacks.
After the war he had a distinguished career in medicine and was especially active in his support of veterans. He was knighted in 1969 and named Australian of the Year in 1976.
