Why Family Owned Is The Best

A family-owned retirement village, showcasing a warm and welcoming community environment

Family owned means family values.

In our fast-paced world, The Village Retirement Group believes family values matter more than ever. Simple things like looking out for other people, doing the right thing, getting to know your neighbours and being part of something bigger than yourself. For us, getting those things right is what makes the difference between having a good retirement and enjoying a great one.


We didn’t build it to win awards, we built it for mum.

It’s a philosophy built on strong foundations. Back in 1979, when Michael Harrison’s search for retirement options for his mother failed to deliver anything he felt was inclusive enough he decided to create something himself, and The Village Retirement Group was born.

Today, the sense of belonging, genuine connection and quality of lifestyle that he wanted his mother to feel have helped Michael and his son Justin create five thriving communities in Coorparoo, Redcliffe, Taigum, Toowoomba and Yeronga, with more than 1,650 people currently calling The Village home.


Value your family!

Of course, finding somewhere like The Village that reflects your own family values makes moving in to a new home far less stressful. Even better, if you can stay in the local area you know and love, and remain close to your real family too.  For most of us, having the time to keep family ties and family history alive is one of the most rewarding parts of retirement. Being able to reassure our children that we’re enjoying retirement to its fullest gives them great peace of mind and the energy and sense of wonder our grandkids provide helps keep us all young at heart 


We promise more than good. We deliver great.

Specifically designed to be fun places to live and to encourage the social and family side of life, our Villages deliver much more than just a place to call home. Once you’ve settled in, there’s so much to enjoy and get involved with. From wellness and aqua-aerobics classes, to art and music groups, to outdoor pursuits like lawn bowls and gardening, there’s a wealth of things to do, new people to meet and experiences to share with your family.


Press play on life!

Life in any one of our unique Villages is all about making the most of every day, surrounded by a close-knit community of residents who believe wholeheartedly in the same family values as you. Values that mean you can look forward to the future with confidence – Don’t retire for good, retire for great at The Village!
