Mildura Retirement Villages

The facilities are vast and varied within our Mildura retirement village – we aim to have something here for everyone.

The village is fully landscaped, with the inclusion of flowering trees lining the driveways and community flowerbeds allowing residents to maintain their active lifestyle and share in the visual feast of their labour with other residents.

There is also a lockable caravan and boat parking area along with the Men’s Shed – for residents to continue their interests and passion in wood and metal work.

Located in the heart of Mildura, access to all types of services, shopping and transport are within easy reach.
The Village is a secure site, with nightly security patrols and automatic lockable gates after a certain time at night to ensure only those who have a right to be there, including all emergency services, can gain vehicular entry. This allows you to enjoy life knowing you are safe and secure, with our emergency services always available if needed.

Activities & interests

Social events

News about upcoming social events is communicated on notice boards and through the newsletter that is delivered to your post boxes. We do encourage residents to be active within the Mildura community and participate in the many community events.

There is a social committee that meets monthly and suggests new ideas and activities. We encourage our Mildura retirement village residents to be involved and many assist in organising the different events.


Group outings are arranged and Princes Court has a small bus that can transport residents according to interest.


Retirement village residents are offered opportunities to a full schedule of activities such as:

  • Tai Chi and exercise classes each week
  • Table tennis is played each week.
  • Lawn bowls

We encourage those residents with a passion for gardening to continue to do so, with our gardening staff always welcoming any assistance offered.

Resources available for use with physical fitness include table tennis, bats balls, indoor bowls, skittles, shuffleboard, and an assortment of other games and equipment available for everyone’s leisure. 

Walking to and from areas within our lovely gardens in the fresh air is a key component of everyday life at Princes Court Village.

Community connections

Sunraysia Carers Association and Chances for Children are among the community groups that use Princes Court Village.

There are numerous opportunities to become involved with these groups and participate in the various activities offered at the community centre.

We also hold regular in-house raffles to raise funds to support a broader range of lifestyle options for our Mildura aged care residents.

Intellectual experiences

Residents meet at the community centre to play card games and scrabble. If there are other activities that new residents would like to introduce there are often others that will be interested. We have two computers available for our Mildura retirement village residents to access anytime.  


Residents can place an order and have their newspapers and magazines delivered to their door. Every day, the community centre provides a copy of the Sunraysia Daily and the Mildura Weekly. Mildura Living Magazine, aged care papers, and other literature are available for residents to pick up at the community centre.


The Village has a well-stocked library that is well used by many residents and is meticulously organised by a very diligent resident.

One of our residents volunteers with MRCC and will begin delivering books to the public from the library today. Some of our residents also listen to recorded books that they can borrow from the library online and listen to on their phones or iPads.

History of the Village

The original site was part of the land set aside for the old Mildura Base Hospital in 1891 on 2.5 acres of land offered by Mr George Chaffey, The original hospital was located at the entrance to the Village from Thirteenth Street and was officially opened in March 1892.

The old Mildura Base Hospital closed on the 18th September 2000 when patients were moved to a new privately-owned facility in Ontario Avenue.

Following a community consultation process, Princes Court Homes Inc. was offered the opportunity to purchase part of the hospital site. The Board of Management had long held the view that it saw advantages in creating an independent living environment and to have a large expanse of land adjacent to the existing Mildura aged care facility was a chance too good to miss. Three parcels of land were acquired and in 2004 demolition of the buildings unsuitable for future use commenced. Buildings that formerly occupied the site were;

The demolition contractor recycled almost all of the building materials.

The one building that survived was the Max Mounsey Allied Health Centre and it was transformed into our Village Community Centre.

Most of the internal walls and fittings were removed and the interior as you see it now, designed and constructed to make this one of the best retirement village community centres in regional Victoria. The building has been fitted with a fire sprinkler system and the emergency pump-house and water tanks, initially provided to service the whole of the former hospital requirements, now ensures that our community centre and fire hydrant services throughout the village and the homes have the appropriate water pressure required by authorities.
