Burnside Retirement Village

Home » Villages » Burnside Village

When you move to Burnside Village, you’re moving to an incredibly vibrant community where it’s easy to form new friendships and nurture old ones. You can choose to live completely independently in a modern and spacious villa or apartment, or take a serviced apartment where you can benefit from all the community facilities and social events of the retirement village without having to worry about daily chores like cooking and cleaning.


It’s fair to say that being part of the community here comes naturally. The residents here have a reputation for being very friendly and social, and there are nearly always things happening and people around. It’s easy to strike up a conversation or join in with what’s going on with regular get-togethers, including weekly dinners, add to the vibrant atmosphere.

Most importantly, you can join in as much or as little as you like. It’s entirely up to you, and your privacy is always respected. Much the same is true at each of Burnside Village’s sister communities in Taylors Hill Retirement Village and Keilor Retirement Village.
