Ocean Gardens is not like other retirement villages. We are a not-for-profit independent living village in beautiful City Beach. Ocean Gardens is an Incorporated Association governed by its members and a Board of independent directors. Ocean Gardens subscribes to the Retirement Living Code of Conduct and is committed to upholding the highest standards across retirement communities in Australia.
We are nestled upon 6.5 beautiful hectares, offering stunning residences and first-class facilities within a private coastal setting. And as a single destination, everything you see at Ocean Gardens is the start and end of where our attention is focused.
In other words, you.
Established in the mid-1980s, our community has grown over time to include 163 villas and 71 apartments, with 11 located in our beautifully modern Palm Gardens building. Over the last decade, we’ve embarked on a refurbishment journey to enhance your experience, from the swimming pool and gymnasium, to coffee lounge, café, library, function room, apartment common areas and immaculate gardens.
We’ve also brought our villas and apartments into line with contemporary interior design, with stylish refurbishments designed with your needs in mind focusing on creating space, enhancing useability (such as soft touch drawer closes) and optimising window views to soak in the natural beauty of our unique coastal setting. It’s a truly breathtaking vantage point, with panoramic 180-degree Indian Ocean views, matched by 180-degree views back across Perth and the Darling Ranges.
Change your view and do something for you
At Ocean Gardens, our location is symbolic of our purpose – to change the way you view life’s next stage. Everything in our peaceful community is designed to feel like home, with walkways, nooks, crannies, stairways and winding paths connecting neighbours together. It’s not exclusive, it’s inclusive. You’ll see people chatting, reading books, laughing over a glass of wine, or simply watching the world go by.
We call it ‘the good life’, a home where you’re surrounded by likeminded people who are here to share and embrace happier, healthier lifestyles. But most importantly, to be themselves.
The confidence to enjoy life to the full
At Ocean Gardens, change is invigorating. Whether you’re tired of caring for a large home and garden, or are looking to enhance the health of you or your partner, we believe choosing a low-maintenance lifestyle in our peaceful community will change your view on retirement living.
Everything we offer empowers you to live a happier, healthier life.

That our classes are always full just goes to show our residents aren’t here to fade into the background. In fact, on an average day at Ocean Gardens you’ll likely see friends and neighbours heading out on social outings, from casual afternoon teas to walking groups, winery tours or special event outings like Sculptures by the Sea. And we’re always finding new ways to bring people together, from getting involved in Movember, to holding a rib-tickling quiz every Thursday, as well as a 'workshop' where you can hone skills like woodwork – all in good company.
