The Eastern Suburbs feature some of Sydney’s most well known and loved beaches including Bondi Beach and Coogee Beach. In fact, the coastal walk between these two beaches is often recommended as a great way to spend the day out! One of Australia’s leading universities is located in the suburb of Kensington, which is only 11 minutes from the City of Sydney.

 

The Group Homes Australia model is firmly built on the belief that people should thrive in a home environment. Ordinary and beautiful homes, on ordinary suburban streets around Australia, where 6 to 10 residents live together. Residents have 24-hour support including dementia care, palliative and respite care, which is provided by a team of staff that we call Homemakers.
