At Norgarden, your day begins with fresh ocean breezes and birdsong in the gardens outside your window. You wander to the dining room for a leisurely buffet breakfast with friends then head off to shop, visit the museum, golf, browse a craft fair or simply enjoy coffee in a Sidney cafe.

Back at home, knitting groups, movie afternoons and card games await, or perhaps time in the garden is in order—even special raised beds for green-thumbs.

If a friend comes by, there are comfortable places to visit inside and out, as well as a guest suite for out-of-town family and friends.

In the evening, meet friends for a three-course gourmet dinner then unwind in front of the fireplace with a good book. Head back to your freshly-cleaned suite and rest for another action-packed or restful day tomorrow. Norgarden offers everything you need to make your retirement truly carefree.

The final touch to your carefree and comfortable retirement is our warm and well-trained staff, available to assist you 24 hours a day.
