IRT Communities - Purpose Built Communities

Purpose-built community​

Your new home in an IRT retirement village has been purpose-built for you:


We carefully select the best location to enhance your lifestyle


The community is designed by architects and purpose built to the highest Australian standards


We work with you to maintain your home


Pets are welcome at some communities


Personalised finishing touches make your IRT retirement village your home.


If you want to downsize your house and upsize your lifestyle, then an IRT retirement village is the place to be. We carefully select the location of our independent living communities to meet your needs:


Walking distance to transport, shops, entertainment and amenities


Tranquil, private settings near beaches, golf courses, parks and bushland


Quiet spaces for privacy, as well as onsite community facilities, like cafes, pools and halls.

Design and Construction

The design and construction process is different for each site, but our principles remain the same:


Quality materials built to Australian standards


Appliances from trusted brands


Landscaping that’s practical and beautiful


Community facilities built and styled to perfection.

Our retirement villages are purposefully designed to optimise their unique location. Your wellbeing, safety and enjoyment are always front of mind:


Villas and apartments enable indoor-outdoor living and accommodate hobbies and guests


Building placement and features optimise natural heating and cooling


Private and shared spaces make entertaining a breeze


Walkways make it easy to get around


On site security provides peace of mind


Universal design caters for aids and in-home support, should your needs change.


We work with you to maintain your home:


Dedicated maintenance and gardening staff on call when you need them


Help with day-to-day activities, like replacing light bulbs


Landscaping, painting and upgrading of community amenities.

Research shows that people who live in retirement villages feel well and live independently for longer. Our maintenance team will ensure your home stays looking good for longer, just like you.

We understand your pet is a member of your family.

That’s why some IRT retirement villages are pet-friendly. In some of these communities, small dogs and cats are welcome in your home.


It’s the finishing touches that really make an IRT retirement village uniquely yours:


A range of colour schemes and finishes offered


Style your villa or apartment to suite your taste


Create a courtyard or balcony garden.

Once you’re settled in your new home, it’s time to enjoy everything that independent living in an IRT retirement village has to offer.

Moving in

Your Retirement Village Manager will personally welcome you to your community. Helping you to settle in and feel at home is their priority. Your community handbook has everything you need to know about living in your IRT retirement village.

Making the most of your community

Independent living is all about choice. Your Retirement Village Manager will help you to curate your new lifestyle. Make new friends, take up a hobby or simply relax in the community grounds. The choice is yours.

Start something new!

It’s your community, so make your mark. If you’ve got an idea for a new activity or event, your Retirement Village Manager is on hand to help you get started. Whether it’s booking transport or printing a flyer, they’re here to help.

Extra support, if you need it

If you get injured or fall ill, your Retirement Village Manager can help. It’s nice to know you’ve got someone to call on if your needs change. They can tee up temporary services like cleaning, personal care, transport and meal delivery. It’s all part of living in an IRT retirement village.


Trusted Support Network​

If your needs change, we’re here to help you organise extra support. IRT’s Home Care Team offers a range of support services, like cleaning and household tasks, shopping, cooking, transport, home maintenance and personal care. 

We’ve also built a network of trusted and screened service providers such as occupational therapists, doctors and physiotherapists who can be called on if you need it.
