A village with everything

Nellie Melba Retirement Village is nestled in the vibrant suburb of Wheelers Hill. It is conveniently located directly across the road from Brandon Park Shopping Centre, which has a variety of amenities such as a supermarket, cafes, bank and medical centre.

Ryman villages offer independent living in apartments and serviced apartments for those who need more assistance. Plus, residential aged care (known as low care and high care) and specialist dementia care.

Residents enjoy amenities such as an all-weather bowling green, heated indoor swimming pool, cafe, hair and beauty salon and cinema, to name just a few. At the heart of it all, residents can relax knowing that if their needs change, they can continue to live in the same village community.

Hear what our residents think about Nellie Melba:

“My first impression when I walked through the doors was it’s absolutely amazing, then when I went through other parts of it I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. We’re looking forward to spending a lot of time here.” Bob, resident

“I couldn’t be happier. The whole complex, it’s just first class. It’s all I can say: first class.” Geoff, resident

“It’s just lovely. It was exciting to come in those main gates – I felt there should have been a trumpet blast or something like that to welcome us. It’s very exciting, a luxury beyond what I was expecting. People had said it’s like going on a cruise but you don’t pull up the anchor. It’s all here.” Maree, resident

“It’s absolutely fantastic. It’s better than I had expected, it must be at least a five-star hotel. It’s absolutely beyond belief.” Gerry, resident

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.
