Retirement Living

Barossa Village offers a range of independent retirement living options and support services. Our homes, cottages and units are located in small and large clusters throughout the nighbourhoods of Nuriootpa, Tanunda and Angaston.

We currently have over 190 units, with development underway for additional eight Licence to Occupy units in Angaston, scheduled for completion in March 2019.

The majority of our homes are offered under a standard License to Occupy and we have a small number of rental units.

Our Licence to Occupy fees start from as little as $165,000 and range through to $360,000, depending on the size, age, location and amenities of the individual home, cottage or unit. This flexibility allows us to cater to a wide range of needs and budgets.


We recommend you complete an Expression Of Interest form to help us find a unit that meets your individual needs.

General Service Fee
A fortnightly Maintenance Service Fee is charged to the residents of all independent living units. This fee is used to cover the daily, quarterly and annual costs and services usually associated with owning and maintaining a home.

Those costs and services include items such as council rates, water rates and usage, building insurance, general maintenance, gutter cleaning, maintenance of front gardens and communal areas, servicing of air conditioning systems, hot water systems, ovens and hot plates – we even change light globes, replace tap washers, change smoke detector batteries and hang up your pictures.

Of course there are also the expected outgoings and the operational costs of running our Retirement Village.

Your neighbours in our Village are people like yourselves – everyone is aged over 55 and is either retired or semi-retired. Like you they choose independent retirement living to have a smaller home, less maintenance and security worries, while still maintaining their independence and freedom.

For many this enables them to free up capital so they can enjoy annual trips whilst knowing their home is safe and secure in the Village environment.

  • "My 80 year old mother had a fall and broke her shoulder. The level of service offered by Barossa Village was incredible - showering, dressing, driving to doctor's appointments. I live interstate and couldn't be with her all the time. It made me feel a lot happier that she was well looked after and she also recovered quickly."

  • When both of my children went off to university I was at a bit of a loose end. I didn't really want to return to full time work but I knew I still had a lot to give. Now I have a weekly meeting with several Barossa Village residents - we have a coffee, a chat and I help them with their shopping. It's a rewarding part of my week.

  • "I live by myself in my own home at least 20 kilometres from Barossa Village. But I get involved in all of their social programs including trips to wineries, picnics and film afternoons. I really look forward to my days out and a few laughs."
    Jane (82), Angaston
  • "We love packing the caravan and just heading off for a couple of months when we feel like it. Our cottage is monitored for security and the garden is maintained while we are away - it makes life very easy and flexible."
    Bill (65) and Maureen (62)
  • "My Dad really feared losing his independence but after Mum died he wasn't eating properly and had several falls. The Residency staff were very sensitive to his needs and made sure he had plenty of space and time to adjust when he moved in. Now he has made several mates, has put on weight and is telling jokes again."
    John (51), Tanunda
  • "We just love retirement in the Barossa. It is a real country community but with all the health, shopping and sporting facilities you would expect in the city."
    Joe (58) and Helen (55)
