Description
Masons and Non-Masons are very welcome in this well maintained rental retirement village, close to the Whangarei hospital and shops.
The Northland District Masonic Trust provides affordable retirement village housing to Northland's seniors. The Trust has been offering housing to Northland's elderly for over 50 years. Our villages are an example of Freemasonry at work in the local community.
The Trust also has a village in Waiatawa Road in Whangarei, two villages in Dargaville and one in Wellsford. All of the Trust's villages offer independent living. (There are no Trust personnel on site.) Sorry, no pets are allowed.
