The grounds and gardens are a delight with a background of Thorps bush with native bird song. The staff are helpful, friendly and caring. There is no other place that I would rather be." - Anne, Oceania rest home resident

  • "The staff I had most contact with were Diane, Lorraine and Mia. They have been just fantastic, but I realise that everyone has contributed to Mum’s overall care.
