Our approach is simple, you come first.

Kingsford Terrace is developed and managed by experienced retirement village operator, Aura Holdings.

At Aura, happy residents are our number one priority and we structure our entire business to put their needs – now and in the future – ahead of all else.

In our view, ‘connectedness’ is a very important part of what we do. Our focus is therefore on fostering a truly connected community here at Kingsford Terrace that is completely attuned and in tune with the way retirees want to live their lives.

That means in addition to creating a fun, receptive and inclusive environment within the retirement village itself, we also value and leverage strong connections with both the local community (sporting clubs, groups and schools) as well as other businesses that are aligned to our vision to the benefit of our residents.

Our experience has taught us that what’s important to retirees is flexibility and choice as they age. So, we are seamlessly integrating Five.Good.Friends. services into our villages to help our residents age in place.

What Makes Aura Different?

Simple & Transparent Fees

Aura says ‘no’ to complicated and hidden fee structures. We believe fees should be both fair and transparent. That’s why we have a straightforward 33% Deferred Management Fee capped at 5 years on the exit sale price, so you benefit from the growth in value of your apartment over time.

Freedom To Move Within Our Villages

Residents have the ability to move within and between Aura villages at any time without restarting or incurring Deferred Management Fees. This means you can flexibly upsize or downsize to available apartments within Kingsford Terrace as your needs change or move to another Aura village altogether.

Aura Holdings - Happy to help

Personally Invested For The Long Term

Aura’s directors Tim Russell and Mark Taylor personally own and manage our villages and intend to remain intimately involved in their operation for the long term. This means you’ll have peace of mind knowing that you’ll always be in good hands with direct access to management who really care.

Our Partners

Aura believes that “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts” which is why we have established partnerships with two businesses that specialise in areas which maximise our offering.

ASX listed funds management business, Blue Sky, is our valued development partners. Blue Sky arranges equity funding through its extensive network of investors and brokers, whilst working closely with Aura on product design, planning and construction.
