Located in the heart of Glenorchy, Barossa Park Lodge offers you high quality residential accommodation, the best of care and the lifestyle you’re looking for, all in a vibrant senior’s community.
Barossa Park Lodge is OneCare’s newest facility and it has been designed to offer a choice of services to help our clients make the most out of every day. Our brand new, purpose-built premises offers the best care and lifestyle. The friendly staff care for all our residents’ individual needs and make them feel welcome in a homely atmosphere. The Lodge is set in Tasmania’s most exciting new seniors’ precinct and offers outstanding levels of hospitality through a family friendly café, shared dining areas and high quality food. The open and airy design encourages residents to make the most of the indoor and outdoor facilities.
We have 136 suites comprising:
- 8 x double rooms
- 2 x respite rooms
- 16 x dementia specific suites
- 40+ independent living units
- 18 x affordable housing units
Barossa Park has single and double rooms with ensuite bathrooms and built-in wardrobes. Each room includes a bed, bedside table, TV, desk and visitor chair as a starting point – but this is your home, and we want you to feel that way! We encourage you to bring photos and personal items to decorate and make the room reflective of you.
Every room is spacious, comfortable and has a different outlook. You might prefer a courtyard room, or perhaps a view to Mount Wellington or the Derwent River.
We also offer dementia-specific suites and respite care. You may be eligible to access respite care up to six weeks – depending on your needs. Respite care can be planned in advance and also available in emergencies.

Be part of a vibrant, inclusive community
Residents, staff, pets, volunteers, family and friends all help to create an atmosphere that is welcoming and fun. We have everything you need, all in the one place. There’s always something happening at OneCare’s Barossa Park Village.
Our green courtyard spaces are filled with plants and flowers; they are the ideal place to have a chat with friends or perhaps steal some ‘me’ time and put your head in a good book.
Just down the road is the nearby shopping precinct of Glenorchy, which has a medical centre, pharmacy, supermarket, cinema, cafes, restaurants, a travel agent, green parks, playgrounds and a local library.
Leisure & Lifestyle
We are always looking for ways to create joy and happiness in the lives of our residents
Our leisure and lifestyle team proudly create a monthly calendar with activities to suit everyone. From individual, tailored opportunities to large group outings, there is always something happening. Lunch dates, counter meals, films and fishing trips are always a highlight, as well as art classes, live music, cooking, games, walking groups, gardening and even helping feed and care for our resident chickens.
We are renowned for our pet therapy programs and work with groups like the Tasmanian Greyhound Adoption Program. Their fortnightly visits are a highlight and there are always plenty of pats, kisses and hugs to go around. We have visits from animals great and small: cats, dogs, prize winning chickens and we’ve even had a pony come and say hello!
We enjoy posting photos and videos of our activities to our Facebook page!
Types of Care Available
From high and low care beds, rooms for couples and singles, our light bright and comfortable rooms will suit everyone. At our range of facilities around the state, we recognise the importance of having access to a range of health and wellbeing services. We also ensure that there are plenty of private and public spaces, loads of amenities and enough interest in the form of social events and activities to keep our residents engaged and active.
Independent Living offers you the freedom and convenience of well-appointed accommodation, with the connection and sense of belonging that comes with being part of a caring community. Our high quality, self-contained units have been designed with the needs of our residents in mind.
We have 18 affordable housing units available to meet the needs of older low-income or low-asset clients, as well as those with a disability, indigenous people and those escaping family violence. These comfortable, well-designed and sustainable housing are available to those people most in need.
Residents can choose to pay by a refundable deposit (RAD), a daily payment (DAP), or a combination of both.
Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD)
If you want to pay in a lump sum, you can choose this option. The amount is Government Guaranteed, which means it is fully refundable. If you access to the full amount as a one-off payment, you can save on interest costs.
Or you can pay in a combination of both RAD and the daily payment.
Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP)
The DAP is a great option if you don’t have access to a the full amount up front. This amount is calculated based on the cost times the current government interest rate and divided by the number of days in the year.
The base cost is refundable but the interest you pay is not.
