About us

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.


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. The most important award for us is the happiness and thank you's from the 1700 residents that call our villages home.
