About the RVRA

The Retirement Village Residents Association (Inc.), NSW has been in operation for over 30 years (incorporated on 22nd February 1990).

Today, it is a professional, non-profit association and a registered charity, with Deductible Gift Status, which helps us to accept donations from generous members, families, and other supporters.  

NSW Fair Trading recognises the Association and The Property Council of Australia as peak bodies representing their respective members.
