When we thrive, we have a zest for life.

Have you always had the spirit for doing things your way? Our new community has been carefully designed for people who want to live in a place with wellbeing at its heart. Welcome to Australian Unity’s Albert Park Lake Community, a place in which our Better Together® philosophy is embedded into every space, every design element and every service. So you can live life with zest and joy — so you can thrive.

Everything for older people in one place

The Alba, the heritage building at the centre of the precinct, was once Australian Unity’s head office. Now this iconic address has been completely reimagined to provide world-class, bespoke living for older people. Comprising award-winning retirement living, assisted living apartments and inviting aged care suites, every space is designed to enhance your own style of living well.

More importantly, it means couples can stay together and there is no need to move again. And should your needs ever change, it’s good to know that residential aged care, including dementia care, is available onsite.

Ideally located across the road from beautiful Albert Park Lake, The Alba is close to shopping, dining and entertainment and Melbourne’s famed arts precinct.

World-class retirement living

The Grace Albert Park Lake is a stunning vertical retirement living community with magnificent views across the lake and to the Melbourne skyline. An award-winning community where luxurious apartments are complemented by outstanding services and resort-style facilities. As part of our Albert Park Lake Community, The Grace is perfectly placed for you to enjoy an active, inner-city retirement.
