Retirement Cottages


Our retirement cottages at Memorial Drive, Williamstown enjoy a close supportive community because it is nestled among the residential care, affordable apartments and rental units that unites the older people in the community. The cottages have a lovely rural aspect yet the Senior Citizens Club is right next door, the Williamstown town centre and post office is within 150 metres and Gawler is less than 15 minutes’ drive.


Wirraminna’s seven cottages are operated as a resident-funded retirement community under the South Australian Retirement Villages Act, ensuring a lifetime lease. The cottages offer a choice of 2 or 3 bedrooms and have between 115 and 132 square metres of living space. Some feature a fully enclosed and attached garage with automatic roller door.


Existing 2-bedroom cottages are priced starting from $180,000. Residents pay a small weekly maintenance fee to cover council rates, water rates, maintenance and other administrative expenses. Should you later choose to leave, your refund is calculated using a formula against the original cost paid on entry.
The Board are currently finalising plans for an extension of the Retirement Village by 12 cottages in the near future


Wirraminna aims to please its community and is interested in adapting to suit your requirements. We can arrange for a guided tour or interview to discuss your preferences. Please contact administration staff on 8524 6396 if you would like more information.
