Retirement living in the fast or slow lanes


A life of independence, security and friendship for retirees is the enticing offer from Geelong Grove Retirement Community. A pretty village of wide streets and thriving gardens is five kilometres south of Geelong and a short car trip of picturesque Corio Bay and beautiful beaches.

Geelong Grove is close to University Hospital, Epworth Hospital and St John of God Hospital. Nearby is Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre, providing easy access to major supermarkets, cafes and professional services. And you are never too far away from a golf course, with Barwon Valley Golf Club also close.

Utilising public transport is made easy with bus stops located right outside the village entries, along with a village bus that is available for weekly shopping trips and other community outings.

Village and Sales Manager Peter Hinck says Geelong Grove caters for everyone.

“Each home has generous living spaces, along with a private courtyard for residents to create their own garden, whether it be for flowers, vegetables or herbs,” Peter says.

“It’s a great space for families to visit, barbecues to be enjoyed or just to sit and read a book in the sun.

“There are plenty of social activities right on

your doorstep, including bus trips to fashion shows, woodwork shed for those who love to tinker, as well as lawn bowls, petanque and billiards.

“If you’re in the mood for something more relaxing, simply take a stroll around the village or visit the library. There is always something to do.

“Life can be busy or cruisy, depending on what you want out of retirement,” Peter says. “It’s a fabulous lifestyle here at Geelong Grove. Book a tour today and see for yourself what we have on offer.”
