Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
A home of your choice:

Set upon 12 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens and fringed by native bush alive with birdsong, Settlers exudes a contemporary environment of luxury, independence and resort-style facilities combined to create an outstanding lifestyle for people over 65. Our quality homes are a collection of 246 attentively designed apartments and townhouses where you may choose between one, two or three-bedroom dwellings, according to your individual needs. Our spaces are fresh, light and airy, flattered by shades of tasteful natural tones. Bathroom and kitchen facilities have been fitted with ultra-modern conveniences to keep you comfortably in the quality lifestyle you’re used to.

Hub of the village – The Lodge:

Our dwellings are all in easy walking distance surrounding our magnificent Lodge – the social heart of the village. It’s here where all the action happens, from enjoyable theatre productions to touching musical recitals, it all takes place within the elegant walls of this grand hub. Big-screen sporting events, wining, dining, dancing and everything fun in between, The Lodge sustains our remarkable camaraderie.
There is no clash at Settlers between community and privacy, for they are both well respected. One can live as privately and quietly as one desires while knowing that friendly connection is only an easy stroll away in moments when you feel that you want it. This enables Settlers to remain a highly desirable choice for discerning people, regardless of where they may find themselves in life.

Dedicated Team:

The exceptional culture of our village is the result of dedicated management with a team of caring staff. We take immense pride in providing a high standard of service to our residents, including supportive and compassionate registered nurses for 24-hour emergency response and day clinic. Our nurses take a holistic approach to supporting our residents in keeping well, both physically and mentally.
Our sister villages are Fairview Lifestyle Village and Fairview Care. Fairview Care is a private hospital which offers priority access for both Settlers and Fairview residents.


Because Settlers is a registered retirement village as well as being part of the Premier Lifestyle Villages Group, we offer residents the full confidence of knowing we operate according to the Retirement Village Act of 2003, and its Code of Practice, due to our membership with the Retirement Villages Association.

Thinking of joining us?

Settlers is open seven days a week, so if you would like to see what vibrant village life looks like at its best, please come by for a full tour between the hours of 10 – 4. We would love to show you our wonderful village and your potential new home.

NOTE: The Retirement Villages Act 2003 (The Act) is designed to provide improved protection for people who ‘buy’ into a retirement village. If you intend to ‘purchase’ you must get independent legal advice before signing your occupation right agreement as required under The Act. Some Retirement Village type facilities are not required to register under The Act so different legal requirements apply. Please make sure you investigate fully.


In some villages there may be some Retirement Village units that have multiple uses e.g. a Serviced Apartment may also be used as a Residential Care Suite. The same unit may therefore show in several places on Eldernet.
