Not just a home…
a lifestyle

Origin’s retirement villages are about far more than where you live – they’re about how you live, something we call Active Living.

Located both in beautiful countryside settings and vibrant town centres, our villages offer a maintenance-free lifestyle that allows you to spend more time doing what you love. Enjoy all the comforts of home and have special access to a variety of amenities and activities on your doorstep, all within a welcoming community.

Our Villages

Choose your experience

Life at our villages offers the freedom to choose how you spend your day. You might opt to stay fit and active, maintain or rekindle a passion or long held interest, entertain family and friends, or make new connections.

At our wellness centre, you can enjoy the swimming pool, spa, fitness studios and hair salon. For something altogether different, relax in the lounge, library or games room, or indulge your creative side in the art studio or craft kitchen. At our restaurants, cafes and bars – the most social part of our villages – you’re sure to find something to tempt you. Outdoors, our beautifully landscaped grounds are there for you to explore.
