A community with heart

Weary Dunlop Retirement Village is conveniently located on Jells Road, near the Wheelers Hill shopping centre, and Jells Park is nearby.

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, hair and beauty salon and cinema, to name just a few. At the heart of it all, residents have peace of mind knowing that if their needs change, they can remain living in the same village community.

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.
