Our free Experience the Difference guide gives you a glimpse into the lifestyle that a Ryman village offers


Where community shapes the heart of your retirement

John Flynn Retirement Village in Burwood East is located only 19kms from the CBD. The village is situated next to the Burwood Brickworks development, which provides an expansive retail centre, complete with an urban rooftop farm. Residents can also enjoy the convenience of a variety of transport options close by.

The village is named in honour of a pioneering Australian, John Flynn, who set the standard for others to follow. A perfect fit for the Ryman tradition of naming our villages after a trailblazer: Sir Weary Dunlop, Dame Nellie Melba, John Flynn. 

As a Ryman village, John Flynn village offers living choices to suit everyone so you can live the way you want and blaze your own trail. From independent living in apartments and the light touch of a serviced apartment, to residential aged care (also known as low care and high care), and specialist dementia care.

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. Comprehensive care options within our villages mean that care can be dialled up if your needs change.

We take care of things like lawns, rates and window cleaning. Leaving you free to do more of the stuff you love. This includes making the most of our beautiful village amenities, such as an indoor swimming pool, all weather bowling green, cinema, hair and beauty salon and café.

John Flynn Retirement Village is part of the Ryman Healthcare group.

Pioneering retirement living 

Founded in New Zealand in 1984, Ryman has been pioneering retirement living in Australasia for more than 35 years. We always have, and always will, challenge the status quo, and adapt to better serve our residents. And right now, that pioneering spirit is more important than ever, because there’s a new generation of Aussies who are not retiring from life, they’re looking for a new way to live.  Read more.
