Tours for Trugo Place


Trugo Place is our luxurious new aged care residence overlooking the tranquil parklands and picturesque waterways of Newport in Melbourne’s inner-West.

We are pleased to announce that we will be welcoming in the public for tours of Trugo Place from Monday 25th January, including the public holiday on the 26th.



Architecturally inspired with state-of-the-art facilities and welcoming, light-filled interiors, Trugo Place offers the highest standard of comfort and care within a vibrant and engaging local community.

Our residential suites are designed to provide a sense of sanctuary, a welcoming and homely retreat to which you’ll look forward to returning at the end of each day. Every effort is made to personalise each resident’s private space, creating an authentic and inviting home away from home.

Trugo Place boasts 120 luxurious private suites, with a range of accommodation packages offering flexible pricing and inclusions. All suites are light, bright and thoughtfully appointed, with high-end finishes, private ensuite and a calm and cosy colour palette.

At Trugo Place, we focus on holistic wellness and offer opportunities for residents to pursue it in whatever form that may take for them. That might mean working out physically in the wellness centre or mentally in one of our brain gyms, meditating in the gardens or having regular hairdressing appointments in the beauty salon – or anything else that is important to them as an individual.

A dedicated spa and wellness centre offers a range of alternative and natural therapies including aromatherapy, physiotherapy, podiatry and pet therapy, with additional onsite wellness facilities including a barre studio.

When you’re not enjoying one of the many activities on offer, you can stroll the gorgeously landscaped gardens or catch up with friends and family at the onsite café.



As with all of our Japara aged care homes, Trugo Place will offer a wide range of aged care services to ensure all your needs are cared for.

Combining the very best in individual-focused clinical care and lifestyle design, this brand new home sets a new benchmark for contemporary residential aged care.
