NZ’s second-largest village operator opened a Melbourne office here in May, headed up by its new General Manager of Development for Australia Paul Morris, formerly General Manager of Development in NZ.

“We’re considering Victoria generally. We believe it’s under-served by quality retirement village offerings. There are few who are offering a continuum of care,” naming NZ-based rival Ryman Healthcare as one example.
