About Us:

Our village is one of only a few affordable rental accommodation retirement options in the entire state of Victoria, where you can manage with just an $800 deposit - 'not' millions like many other places charge!

The fortnightly rent is affordable even if you are on the pension alone (which covers all meals).

Living Well at Bendigo is conveniently situated in Kangaroo Flat with a lovely garden setting, and very close to shopping centres with a bus stop directly outside.   Only 1 and 3/4 hours to Melbourne by train.

The affordable housing complex was designed to meet the need for high quality and affordable accommodation for independent mature people. 

Fresh food is prepared onsite and caters for home style meals. 

All of our villa units are modern and very comfortable. 

The complex is comprised of 75 villa units, together with communal facilities. Manager lives onsite. 

The communal facilities consist of substantial landscaped grounds and Community areas, including dining rooms and sitting areas. 

Price Structure:

All rents are based approximately on a percentage of the Single Aged Pension together with the maximum allowable Government Rent Assistance.

Fortnightly rent is affordable even if you are managing on the pension alone.  

We have 3 different possible pricing structures/scenarios, depending on your situation and what suits you the best:

  • One bedroom unit for one person and all meals included
  • One bedroom unit for two people (a couple) and all meals included
  • Two bedroom unit for a couple with adjoining doors and all meals included 

As mentioned above, we only charge a modest bond of $800 , 'not' millions of dollars like of the other  retirement places.


To keep our pricing affordable we do not include nursing care, however many residents make their own nursing arrangements with the local council or their doctors.


All units can easily accommodate two people comfortably. They are very modern and comfortable. 

Each unit features a separate bedroom, bathroom, living area with kitchenette, enclosed private rear garden with small shed and clothesline.
