Yes, you can have it all - comfort, security and a community that truly cares about you.
In fact, you get even more than that at The Wood. You also benefit from a central position that’s close to the Milton Street shops, Queen’s Gardens and all the retail and café excitement of the CBD. Life at The Wood revolves around daily activities that keep you feeling positive, healthy and connected to others through friendship and fun. We have a dedicated activities room that’s used for Sky TV, movies, bowls, bingo and crafts. And when the weather’s warm the community loves to catch up around the barbecue in our fountain courtyard. Our village van is busy throughout the week with excursions for shopping, picnics and sightseeing.
