About Our Community
George Forbes House is located in the city of Queanbeyan, boasting sweeping views of the surrounding countryside and offers easy access to the nation’s capital. 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. Two wings are dedicated to top-quality dementia care within a secure environment.
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.

We are committed to providing person-centred care that encourages independence and quality of life. Our philosophy of care is based on Christian principles that are reflected in all aspects of our purpose, vision, values and services.
Our well-trained staff can support a broad range of care needs to suit each of our residents: from those who are still fairly independent, to the ones with complex needs such as people living with dementia, right through to end of life care. We are here to be that extra support families need in ensuring their loved ones are well cared for and feel safe.
