A bit about us

Keyton is a leading owner and operator of retirement villages in Australia with over 30 years of experience. The 75+ retirement villages in our portfolio are in some of the nation’s most sought after locations.

In June 2023, we embarked on an exciting new journey with the launch of our new name and brand: Keyton.

While our name may have changed, many things are staying the same. Like the passion of our people, the quality of our homes, and the connectedness of our communities. We achieve this through our guiding values of how we work together. These were developed together with our team of great people who carry out their work with these values in mind every day.
