The Manawatu region is an idyllic and convenient location to live and enjoy retired life.

Our region is ideal for those wanting a combination of active living, leisure and relaxation. With the region’s central location, Palmerston North airport and great transport links, it’s easy to visit relatives and have them visit you. We also have some of the best health and support services in New Zealand.

Retirement Villages

There are a variety of retirement villages located within Palmerston North, Feilding and other small towns in the region.

As well as affordable and attractive housing, many of these retirement villages also provide a range of recreational and leisurely activities for residents. Feilding’s compact size and connected community makes it a popular option for retirees looking to downsize while still being independent.

Check out what 80-odd years of happy looks like at Julia Wallace Retirement Village in Palmerston North.
