Melbourne’s Eastern suburbs are especially popular with young families and retirees, so the facilities and communities within those areas are generally safe and accessible. If you are considering the Melbourne East area to spend your retirement years, the Cameron Close retirement village is an ideal location for you. Comfortably nestled between the scenic Surry Hills and vibrant Camberwell, the Cameron Close Village offers a relaxing and wholesome environment suited for seniors.
