At Matamata Country Lodge, we offer a total care concept with a wide range of accommodation available from chalets through to rest home and hospital level care. We pride ourselves on providing the highest level of elderly care and in 2018 achieved the highest level of 4-year Accreditation putting us in the top 25% of residential Care Facilities.

The lodge has been 100% family owned and operated by the Main family since 1992. This historic building dates back to 1924, when it was originally a maternity hospital - and the birthplace of founder Ron Main.

We offer a total care concept with a wide range of accommodation available from chalets through to rest home and hospital level care.

Our retirement village options offer both chalets for independent living and serviced apartments for supported living.

With the addition of eight new 2-bedroom chalets, we now have a total of 28 chalets - offering a superb independent living option.

All chalets feature full kitchens and bathrooms and a car shed - with a focus on maximising the residents security, privacy and independence.

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.
