Our History

From its early beginnings in 1992, Banksia has become a valuable community asset,  with a rich reputation for providing the best in retirement living, aged care facilities and services, and – above all – a caring, friendly and supportive environment for those who call Banksia home.

Formed by a small group from the Batemans Bay RSL Sub Branch, Banksia was initially established as the Batemans Bay Ex-Service and Community Village Limited. We later became Banksia Villages Limited to reflect the diversity of our services to the wider community. In 2020, Banksia is celebrating 25 years of quality care and support for older persons.

Today, Banksia Village is a leading, fully accredited provider of independent retirement living, residential aged care, and help at home delivered to homes throughout our region. Our co-located retirement village and aged care facility occupy eight hectares of level land at Broulee, on the NSW South Coast, with a further exciting enhancement of our site currently in planning. As a capstone development for Banksia Village, this next stage will incorporate additional villas for independent living with an extended range of in-demand lifestyle facilities and professional services.
