Wahroonga is a small but lively supported living community situated amongst 24 peaceful acres in rural Biloela, Central Queensland. Our 65 residents access a variety of high and low-level care, and dementia specific support, and we also offer independent living in nine retirement units. These co-located accommodation options mean residents can continue to be part of the Wahroonga community and they also offer opportunities for couples to stay together, regardless of changing needs.
Our dedicated and skilled staff are one of our major assets. One of our staff members was presented with a national award for creating a tranquil atmosphere in the secure dementia unit, another received a Rotary Pride of Workmanship Award and a volunteer group of men were recently thanked at a regional Australia Day ceremony.
Residents continue to be involved with the local community. Some residents choose to crochet beanies for babies born in the local hospital, while an intergenerational program links school students and Wahroonga residents. The Day Therapy Centre is our social hub. It is open to residents and members of the broader community. Regular events include concerts, barbecues, games and movie screenings.

“Wahroonga was built by the community, for the community so it maintains strong local ties. We love our rural location.”
Lorna Perrett, Manager Wahroonga
“The people here are very friendly. I live in a villa and my wife is in the nursing home so it’s very handy. Biloela is a good place too live and it's only an hour-and-a-half to Rockhampton”
Wahroonga Independent Living Unit resident Fred Medhurst
There are plenty of garden areas to admire in this bush setting. Large trees for shade and splashes of colour feature in outdoor areas where you can enjoy some quiet time or a chance to share a meal with family. A purpose-designed sensory garden in the secure dementia unit is a highlight for residents who appreciate the soothing scents of lavender and rosemary.
