About Us

This website has been created by the Retirement Living Council to educate and inform all people who are living in or thinking of making the move to a retirement village.

The Retirement Living Council is a specialist division of the Property Council of Australia and represents a large number of retirement village owners, operators and developers, plus associate members with a direct interest in the retirement living sector.

The lead members of the Retirement Living Council are building Australia’s future communities dedicated to the accommodation and care of over 65s, and are diverse in profile and mission. They include Australian Stock Exchange-listed companies, private equity companies, mutuals, church-based entities, returned services associations, not-for-profit organisations and small operators.
