About Our Community
A recently renovated centre that boasts sweeping views of the countryside, George Forbes House is our home in the country. Set amongst stunning scenic bushland, you will experience natural beauty, every day.
Located in the popular suburb of Queanbeyan on the outskirts of the ACT, you will enjoy peaceful, spacious grounds, and quaint courtyards where you can relax with friends and family. We also have an aviary and fishpond adding to the tranquil atmosphere.
The country comfort continues inside, where 85 generously sized rooms provide plenty of natural light, ample storage space, built-in wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom. Of these rooms, two secure wings are dedicated to top quality dementia care. Our highly skilled staff members never underestimate the power of individual care – it’s what we’re here for.
That’s why life at George Forbes House has never worked around an itinerary; it works around you. You’re invited to enjoy the convenience of an on site hairdresser, library, podiatrist, physiotherapist, and regular trips and church services.
Or you may prefer to relax and take in the beauty and peace of the local grounds. Whatever you choose, this country home is your special place to enjoy.
