Behind the success of The Village Retirement Group is a simple vision

Don’t retire for good, retire for great.

We didn’t build it to win awards, we built it for mum.
Back in 1979, when Michael Harrison's search for retirement options for his mother failed to deliver anything he felt was good enough, The Village Retirement Group was born.

Today, the standards of innovation, quality and lifestyle that he insisted on have helped Michael and his son Justin create five thriving communities in Coorparoo, Redcliffe, Taigum, Toowoomba and Yeronga, with more than 1,500 people currently calling The Village home.
Location, location, location.
Knowing that people like to remain in the communities they've helped to create, The Village Retirement Group selects locations that ensure our Villagers can continue to live close to friends, family and everything else they know and love.

That's why, from inner-city chic to relaxed, country living to peninsula casual, all of the Village Retirement Group's villages have their own character and style based around their unique location.


Our Villages set the benchmark for independent retirement living in Australia. A fact confirmed by their popularity with residents and the many awards we've been privileged to pick up.
