Fair terms for your peace of mind

We believe in protecting the interests of our residents and families.

This is why we offer some of the most resident-friendly and transparent terms in Australia. For example, we will never increase your fixed weekly fee, no matter how long you live in the village, and there are no hidden costs.

Continuum of care on site

In addition to independent and serviced apartment living, we offer the best of aged care and dementia care in our on-site care centre.

Couples can both live in the same village, even if their needs are different.

Enjoy retirement living with peace of mind, knowing that if your needs change, you have priority access to other levels of care - right there in the village.

Activities and exercise

Ryman Engage, our activities and lifestyle programme, offers a varied selection of activities to cater for many interests. You can participate as much or as little as suits you.

The award-winning Triple A exercise programme caters for all levels of ability, and has been fantastic for improving the health and wellbeing of residents who take part.

Delicious

A fresh and delicious approach to food

In 2017, we launched our Ryman Delicious menus. Our aim was to shake up our approach to food and how it is delivered. To achieve this, we literally went back to the drawing board to survey what our residents’ preferences were.

In listening to our residents, we could capture the essence of what is really important to them. Cravings for old favourites are satisfied by providing the comfort of the classics, but we keep it ‘fresh’ with innovative choices. Think roast chicken alongside slow-cooked pork and coconut curry.

Fresh is the name of the game – meals prepared on-site using fresh seasonal produce. The aim of Ryman Delicious is to create meals with an abundance of flavour and presentation that is a feast for the eyes. Not to mention we offer a choice of three meals at lunchtime, which includes a vegetarian option.

For many of our residents, coming together for a meal is a highlight. At Ryman, we aim to provide an experience to remember and an opportunity to connect.

Check out the deliciousness for yourself in our extensive Delicious menus.

How to find us

Weary Dunlop Retirement Village is conveniently located at 242 Jells Road, next to Wheelers Hill Shopping Centre.

Weary Dunlop

Our namesake - Sir Edward “Weary” Dunlop (1907 – 1993)

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.
