Over 55s communities in Greater Geelong, VIC

Our over 55s Greater Geelong communities

Greater Geelong is Victoria’s second-largest city and lies just 75 km from Melbourne, Australia’s most liveable city. While densely populated in areas, there are many peaceful, rural areas across the region, like the town of Lara where our Ingenia Lifestyle over 55s community is located.

An increasingly popular alternative to traditional retirement villages in Geelong and Melbourne, our communities empower retirees to set their own pace and love life. If you’re ready to plan retirement living on your terms, the Ingenia lifestyle is for you.

Why do senior Australians love the Ingenia lifestyle?

There’s so much more to downsizing than decluttering and moving into easy-to-manage, age-appropriate accommodation, though that is a major benefit for Ingenia Lifestyle residents. When you join our community in Lara, Greater Geelong, you’re joining like-minded friends who, like you, prioritise independent and active living.

Our communities in Victoria and along the Eastern Seaboard enable you to lead the life you want in retirement, whether it’s relaxing at home and enjoying the breezy alfresco spaces, locking up and leaving to travel, or immersing yourself in community life and joining in the regular social activities. It’s easy to understand why downsizing to Ingenia Lifestyle Lara is so popular:

  • Access exclusive, on-site resort-style facilities
  • Choose from a great range of low-maintenance stylish home designs
  • Benefit from a range of lifestyle programs and events to keep you active

Happy adventures in Victoria

Our residents benefit from the safe and secure nature of each Ingenia Lifestyle location, including our community in peaceful Lara. With on-site management and neighbours who look out for one another, they feel confident enough to “lock-up-and-leave” on holidays, often for extended periods of time, and enjoy peace of mind while away.

What’s more, many of our communities offer secure caravan and boat storage facilities so you can keep your camper or boat on-site and conveniently access it whenever you like. Perfect for those wanting to lead an active lifestyle in retirement.

It's your turn...

Downsize and retire on your terms

Our residents enjoy independence and greater financial confidence when they downsize. Unlike traditional retirement villages where exiting can be an expensive experience, your brand new Ingenia Lifestyle home is yours to upgrade, renovate and sell at any time, and you needn’t worry about:

  • Those expensive exit and deferred management fees
  • The need to reinstate the condition of your home if you decide to sell
  • Paying stamp duty or council rates that chip away at your retirement savings

Moreover, as an Ingenia Lifestyle resident, you keep 100% of your capital gains when you sell, unlike traditional retirement villages in Lara, Geelong and Melbourne where you would have to share in any capital growth with the operator.
