Benefits & Facilities

Maintenance Free Living

Maintenance Free Living

Many residents make the move to Oak Tree Retirement Villages looking for a lower maintenance lifestyle. Quite often the family home has become too big, the yards and gardens increasingly more difficult to maintain, the house more challenging to clean, and just as soon as everything is tended to, the cycle starts all over again!
Security and Peace of Mind

Security and Peace of Mind

Whether you are on your own or with your spouse, being around like-minded others in a secure community environment can bring a great sense of peace and comfort to you and just as importantly, your loved ones.
Companionship & Social Activity

Companionship & Social Activity

Loneliness, a loss of a spouse or simply coming to the realisation that the area in which you live has changed significantly and people have moved on, is another major reason why many have made Oak Tree Retirement Villages home.

Live Better with Oak Tree

Live Better with Oak Tree

Welcome and thank you in advance for taking the time to get to know us. There is much to consider when contemplating a move into a retirement village; location, the villa, the amenities, affordability, and the village management. We trust we can deliver on each of these. Just as important in your consideration, however, is your personal sense of comfort and state of wellbeing, and peace of mind for your family and friends to know that your needs are well cared for.

This is why Oak Tree is passionate about offering more than just a home, but a complete lifestyle experience.

A Sense of Belonging

Our villages have active social communities where residents can be involved in new activities, share a laugh and a conversation, make new friends and belong to something more.

A Sense of Security

Our villages are gated and fenced communities which offer residents a secure environment where they feel safe to walk around the village and feel comfortable within their homes knowing public access to the village is limited.


Maintenance-Free Living

Our staff care for all lawns and gardens and general maintenance around the village. Our residents no longer have the burden of such arduous tasks, and feel a sense of freedom to do the things they enjoy most. Our villages are located as far north in Cairns QLD to as far south in Kingston Tasmania and we’re continually expanding to come to a town near you. Please take the time to peruse our website and see all that Oak Tree has to offer. We sincerely trust Oak Tree can help you find a better way of life to make the most of your retirement years.

Peace of Mind

We offer welcoming environments where residents feel part of a community of friends and trusted neighbours. Our residents feel comfort in knowing there is help and company close by if ever they need it and our friendly village staff are also on hand for assistance.
