    The Health and Wellness centre is located within the residential care building. I am extremely impressed with all I have seen. Allied Health tailored for elderly and exercise physiologists who are well suited to and enjoy their job. So rare to see an aged care facility run so well run. The Bowler Family Café serves excellent quality meals. Cooked and presented beautifully.
