This carefully planned Adelaide Retirement Village offers extensive modern facilities and convenient services along with comfort, security and companionship, creating a village environment specifically designed for the over 55’s.

The best way to appreciate the warm atmosphere and quality facilities at Vailima Gardens is to make an appointment to visit with your friends and family. We welcome your call.


Providing a central gathering point, the superbly restored Vailima Mansion is a grand building that carries a sense of nostalgia, warmth and comfort which permeates the entire village. It holds the communal lounges, dining room, library, recreation room, lawn bowls, hairdressing salon and service facilities.


For the convenience of residents and visitors, we have a large undercover carpark which is accessible via an extra large lift to each floor. Some units come with storage for personal items. Parking and charging bays for mobility scooters are also available.


Our purpose-built recreation room has only the residents in mind. Whether playing Scrabble, Mah Jong, or enjoying a delicious morning tea with scones topped with jam and cream, it is a great place to relax and socialise. Enjoy a drink and nibbles at the bar or join in at the regular Happy Hour events. Play some pool or jave a game of lawn bowls. Visitors are welcome to come and dine-in or relax in any of the lounges, and join in on the fun!


As its name suggests, the grounds of Vailima Gardens is one of its best features. A fusion between traditional English-style gardens and the best of native Australian bushland, its meticulously maintained communal and private gardens expand across the entire estate with a grand fountain forming a centrepiece. Our rose bushes have been grown from age-old root stock, and set off other plants such as lavender, lovely established trees, along with native South Australian plants, which attract an abundant array or bird life to the grounds. For those who really love the outdoors, the Adelaide Botanical Gardens are also just across the road.


Auscare catering provides superb meals prepared in our modern Kitchen with strict quality controls. All our delicious meals use the freshest seasonal ingredients, we take extra care to make sure even the fussiest of pallets are well catered for. You can relax and enjoy the home-style cooked meals served to you in our beautiful atrium dining room. Meals can be delivered to apartments if required and we can also cater for special appetites and dietary requirements. We encourage you to invite your family and dine in as well, they may even find they prefer it to their own cooking or even to an expensive restaurant.
