The Bundaleer Gardens Village is nestled in the most beautiful 12 acres of the Hastings Valley and represents a blend of history, beauty and tranquility. Located in the historical town of Wauchope, the Bundaleer Gardens Village has progressed significantly since construction first began in 1989.
In total, there are now 79 Independent Living Units with a range of floor plans and styles all offering quality, secure, modern and desirable accommodation designed to take advantage of the outstanding township of Wauchope, only 15 kms away from the ocean and the natural beauty of one of Australia's finest hinterlands on its doorstep. The site is within easy reach of the local Wauchope Centre and 20 minutes' drive from Port Macquarie.
The Bundaleer Gardens Village, “the jewel in the crown”, presents to our residents and their guests a village full of history and charm, which is comfortable and very stylish. Facilities include a craft room, billiards/darts, library, games room for indoor bowls and a meeting room for our various interest groups. The village itself is set within peaceful surrounds, complemented by landscaped gardens and an outdoor BBQ area.
Offering residents the level of privacy and independence they would expect in their own homes, as well as providing a wide range of social and community activities and the opportunity to make new friendships and connections, the Bundaleer Gardens Village really is the perfect place to make friends and spend your retirement years.
Also on the grounds is our accredited 84 bed Cameron Street Aged Care Facility, surrounded by tranquil gardens, with superb views stretching over the rural landscape, providing a reassuring presence and peace mind for residents wishing to plan for every future potential need.

No. You don’t need to be retired to live here, however, you or your partner need to be 55 years of age or over.

Also, in the event of their passing, the accommodation and security of their surviving partner have responsibly been provided for.
