Retirement Living

Air Force Memorial Estate


Opened in 1973, Air Force Memorial Estate in Bull Creek is the flagship estate in the RAAFA group and is the place to be for people wanting to live close to the city and all it has to offer, amidst beautiful parklands.

The estate covers an area of 11 hectares and includes a mixture of 339 apartments and units. The state-of-the-art, multi-storey Mirage and Orion Terraces and the Alice Ross-King Care Centre form the centerpiece of the estate surrounding a man-made lake with beautiful gum trees and gardens, providing a relaxing atmosphere for you to enjoy.

Residents say it isn’t just a place to live, it is the community. "When my husband passed away my whole life changed. I was very grateful for the supportive network of people on the Estate. Also the many facilities located on my doorstep and knowing that when things like the hot water system burst, I just had to pick up the phone".

Accommodation on the Estate comprises of a mixture of 106 2 bedroom apartments and 234 1 and 2 bedroom units providing a lively environment and an excellent standard of living.

It's the ultimate lifestyle for nesting or travelling - just lock up and leave if you want to. Your home will be safe and secure while you’re away.

Mirage and Orion Terraces

Completed in November 2011, Mirage Terraces allows residents to retire in a modern, architect-designed apartment within a conveniently located and long-established retirement estate. It was followed by the completion of the six storey Orion Terraces in 2014.

The combined complexes offer 13 different floor plans, each featuring two bedrooms and two bathrooms, some with a separate study, or a study area. All have spacious indoor and outdoor living areas that flow into each other to create elegant, casual living spaces bathed in natural light. Each apartment also has its own secure car bay.
