Published on

The $200 million Nellie Melba Retirement Village in Wheelers Hill (30 minutes east of the CBD) was officially opened in a ceremony attended by the iconic opera singer’s great-grandson, Lord Samuel Vestey.

The village will be home to around 300 residents and include both independent and serviced apartments, as well as an aged care centre providing low care, high care and specialist dementia care.

NZ’s largest village operator with 15 villages in NZ (and whose half-year financial report in November 2018 places its assets at $2.1 billion), has already purchased seven other village sites in Victoria.
