A bit about me...
I'd like to introduce myself, I'm Gary Brock and I'm proud to be the Village Manager at Oak Tree Retirement Village Cairns.
Originally from Victoria I have been a home owner in Cairns for 25 years but have spent much of my time working down south. It has been a positive change returning home to the tropics in recent years where I have re-acclimatised and settled back into our more laid back way of life.
I have worked a variety of managerial roles in my career, but none have come close to being as rewarding as it is working in the retirement sector.
At Oak Tree I enjoy helping people and making a difference to someone’s day. I enjoy the day to day interaction with the residents and I also enjoy the challenge and the variety this job brings.
I am so impressed by the layout and simplicity of the Village and the Villas and the low maintenance lifestyle on offer to our residents. I can definitely see the benefits of living at Oak Tree myself.
I am looking forward to helping this Village continue to grow and supporting our residents to enjoy a happy, fulfilling retirement.
