About the village

Living in an Aura village

Who knew that independence and community would love living together so much? Experience the retirement you deserve in an Aura village.


Our approach is simple, you come first.

The Avenue Maroochydore is developed and managed by experienced retirement village operator, Aura Holdings.

At Aura, we create communities built on three fundamental principles: transparency, fairness and freedom.

We’re open, honest and straight-talking; you can ask us anything. All our residents get a fair go – a premise that’s reflected in our fee structure as well as our philosophy.

We think of ourselves as the anti-corporate because our approach goes against the grain: we’re influenced first and foremost by our residents’ needs and wants

Most importantly, we empower residents to shape, take ownership of and make decisions about the retirement village in which they live.

Because this is your home and we work for you.

We know from experience that happy, engaged residents are our greatest advocates. That’s why our business model places people first and is centred around creating empowering, respectful environments that enrich retirees’ lives.

What makes Aura different?

Retirement Living | Community facilities - technology

Simple & transparent fee structure

Aura says ‘no’ to complicated and hidden fee structures. We believe fees should be both fair and transparent. That’s why we have a straightforward 33% Deferred Management Fee capped at 5 years on the exit sale price, so you benefit from the growth in value of your apartment over time.

Retirement Living | Community facilities - freedom to move

Freedom to move within our villages

Residents have the ability to move within and between Aura villages at any time without restarting or incurring Deferred Management Fees. This means you can flexibly upsize or downsize to available apartments within The Avenue Maroochydore as your needs change or move to another Aura village altogether.

Personally invested for the long term

Aura’s directors Tim Russell and Mark Taylor personally own and manage our villages and intend to remain intimately involved in their operation for the long term. This means you’ll have peace of mind knowing that you’ll always be in good hands with direct access to management who really care.

What we stand for

Fairness: We put people first

Aura takes a ‘people first’ approach which means that we will act with your best interests at heart. If you decide to call The Avenue Maroochydore ‘home’, then we will do everything in our power to make it feel like yours, truly.

Freedom: We listen & empower

We believe our residents have an important role to play in shaping the place in which they live. That's why we encourage you to speak up and participate in decision-making about the place that you call home.

Transparency: We are available

Just like a true friend, our doors are always open. That means we are happy to talk about the way we do things any time, and we'll gladly make time to discuss our approach and hear your thoughts. Ask us anything - we'll give you a straight answer.

Innovation: We do things differently

We know that retirees want to stay living in the areas they love. That's why we are focused on building high quality retirement villages in suburban locations close to shops, transport and sporting clubs so you don't have to compromise on location or quality of lifestyle.


Living in an Aura Village

“I really respect the way Aura has been so proactive in making their villages the best they can possibly be. It’s so good to see them willing to invest time and money in all the small things that make life better and easier for the residents. They’re very considerate of our needs, forward-thinking in their approach and beyond helpful.”
