our story

Kirkley Gardens is Lithgow’s first self-care retirement village complex and is privately owned by four locals; Janelle Johnstone, Ross Johnstone, Mary Hernandez, and Tony Hernandez.

After hearing about the lack of over 55’s living available in the Lithgow area, Janelle and Ross decided to do something about it. They partnered up with Mary and Tony, and Kirkley Gardens began.

As locals all their lives and business people for many years, five acres of land on the rural outskirts of Lithgow was allocated to build Lithgow’s first Over 55 Living and Retirement Village.

They wanted to create a peaceful, friendly, close-knit community that provides a range of options for you as a retiree.

Set on five acres of lush gardens with only 29 villas, Kirkley Gardens is a boutique retirement village where you really become part of the community.

If you are looking to downsize your home Kirkley Gardens offers a comfortable and welcoming place to move to.
