Greenside Villas in Yinnar

Did you know there is a retirement village located in the heart of Yinnar? The Yinnar & District Housing Development’s Greenside Retirement Village was opened in 1993 after a group of concerned Yinnar residents decided it was time for the town to be able to provide retirement accommodation for its elderly residents.

Yinnar community resident, Ray Linton along with a dedicated group of locals came together as a working group to investigate the possibility of building a facility in Yinnar so elderly residents didn’t have to move from the area.

The village consists of seven two bedroom units and four one bedroom units. The two bedroom units have a garage built under the roofline and the single bedroom units have carports. Today, 27 years after the first residents moved into the village it is still a safe and friendly place to live with a real sense of community.

The units are very comfortable and maintained to the highest standard. The village is owned and run by the community. A volunteer committee of management is responsible for the running and upkeep of the buildings and surrounds.

The on-going cost to live at the village is very affordable and the monthly fee covers all maintenance (inside and out) of the buildings, council rates, water rates, building insurance, common area lawn mowing and gardening. Residents are responsible for their own contents insurance, electricity and phone accounts and backyard gardening/mowing.

At present there are no vacancies at the village but if you are interested or would like to go onto the waiting list, please contact The Secretary, Greenside Villas, PO Box 369, Yinnar 3869 or phone Sue on 0458 151 631 or you can email:
