On Wednesday 4 July, hundreds of Brisbane seniors gathered for the grand unveiling of Kingsford Terrace retirement community’s second stage of development, ‘Duporth’.

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk, along with Kingsford Terrace resident, Val Donovan, performed the grand opening announcing Duporth ‘officially open’.

There were some beautiful photos captured on the day which are now available on the Kingsford Terrace Facebook page.

In attendance were a number of ex-students from the Ladies of Duporth Private School, from which the building name was derived, that opened in Oxley in 1888.

The Duporth building, designed by O’Neill Architecture and built by McNab Constructions, is setting a new standard in retirement living with its state-of-the-art community facilities including a café, heated pool, wine room and many more.

The building is also home to 53 one-, two-, and three-bedroom independent living apartments.

“It was fantastic to see so many seniors in the area gather to see our new building,” said Village Manager, Mandy Julian.

“We have now had some of our first residents move in and it is lovely to see the Duporth building come to life!” Said Ms Julian.

Apartments at Kingsford Terrace retirement community are selling quickly from $395,000. For pricing and information about Kingsford Terrace, email or contact Mandy Julian on 07 3716 0804.
