Built in 1850, the Lodge is rich in history while offering a cosy, comfortable home surrounded by tranquil gardens and mountain and park views.

We work closely with the local community and over time have built a reputation as an organisation that genuinely cares for others in need, without discrimination.


Our Services

This is your home, you are most welcome to bring in your own favourite items - photos, momentos and accessories to dress the room to your own taste and preferences. *

*All items must meet the Centre's work, health and safety guidelines. 

Meals are cooked daily onsite by a qualified chef in consultation with the dietician. The menu is rotated regularly to promote choice and take advantage of what is in season. Each meal has a selection of high protein, vetarian and modified options. We also cater for special dietary and cultural requirements. 

We take fun quite seriously! The Centre has a dedicated Lifestyle Team that organises daily activities based on the suggestions of residents. These include day trips, celebrations, trivia, dancing, visiting musicians, sing-alongs, exercise programs, gardening and more more.

For those who wish to enjoy some quiet time, there are private spots in the gardens, library and lounge rooms to relax in. 

Scheduled visits from the local GP and other Allied Health services as needed, including podiatrist, speech therapist, occupational therapist and dentist.

We have a holistic model of care. The Centre Chaplains play an important role in bringing this to life. Whatever your beliefs, our Chaplains are here to assist in your spiritual and emotional journey, if you wish - because we don't have clients, only family.
