Over 55s communities, also known as lifestyle villages, are communities older Australians can be a part of when they decide to downsize and enjoy a change of pace. Over 55s communities provide a space and opportunity to live the lifestyle you want. Whether that be expanding hobbies, making friends and being part of a community, or enjoying some comfort and privacy.
Ingenia Federation’s three communities in Melbourne have so much on offer, so let’s have a look.
Why should you consider moving to an Ingenia Federation community in your retirement?
- Connection with like-minded individuals
At Ingenia Federation, there are all kinds of facilities to enjoy with other people. There are areas for functions and special events, or for casual meet ups where you can enjoy a drink with an old or new friend. We also have plenty of facilities, like our gym, workshop and community garden, where you can learn new hobbies, build on old skills or focus on your health and fitness.
- Accessible locations
Sometimes retirement villages or over 55s communities are set in locations that can be quite far from family or valued services or amenities. Ingenia Federation’s over 55s communities are each only around 30 minutes from the Melbourne CBD. Our over 55s community locations are well-positioned close to services and public transport in Werribee, Glenroy and Sunshine.
- Secured and gated communities
Part of enjoying your later years is having comfort and feeling secure. Enjoy our over 55s communities knowing that everything is gated off, leaving you free to move around the community without any worries. For your peace of mind, we have CCTV surrounding the community.

Ingenia Federation communities are designed for independent living. The last thing you want to feel is coddled! Part of having an active and social lifestyle means exercising your independence.

Retirement is about enjoying your senior years. This is why Ingenia’s over 55s communities are all about relaxed living. We take care of the hard work, like landscaping and garden maintenance, for you while you focus on enjoying yourself.
