About the village

Our village operator

The Avenue Maroochydore is developed and managed by experienced retirement community operator, Aura Holdings.

Our approach is simple, you come first.

The Avenue Maroochydore is developed and managed by experienced retirement village operator, Aura Holdings.

Queensland-based Aura was founded in 2016 by Tim Russell and Mark Taylor and has several luxury mid-rise retirement communities in various stage of council approval, development and operation in Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast and Toowoomba. Together, Tim and Mark have more than 35 years working within the retirement living industry.

At Aura, this experience has taught us how important it is to focus on our residents. Happy residents are our number one priority and we structure our entire business to put their needs – now and in the future – ahead of all else.

In our view, ‘connectedness’ is a very important part of what we do. We foster a truly connected community at The Avenue Maroochydore that is completely in tune with the way our residents want to live their lives.

That means that in addition to creating a fun, receptive and inclusive environment within the retirement village itself, we also value and leverage strong connections with both the local community as well as other businesses that are aligned to our vision to the benefit of our residents.

Coastal retirement living that's

yours, truly


What we believe in:


We put people first.

We understand that happy, engaged residents are our greatest advocates. That’s why our business is centred around creating empowering, respectful environments that enrich retirees’ lives.


We listen and empower.

We believe there’s a huge amount of satisfaction to be gained from being in control and cultivating a sense of ownership. Our residents have an important role to play in shaping the place in which they live; they’re encouraged to speak up and participate in the decision-making process.


We make ourselves available.

Just like a true friend, our doors are always open. That means we’re always happy to talk about the way we do things and we’ll gladly make time to sit down and chat – whether you want a resident’s insight into the village life or a drink with the two Directors.

What makes Aura different?

Simple and transparent fees

Aura says ‘no’ to complicated hidden fee structures. We believe fees should be both fair and transparent. That’s why we have a straightforward 33% Deferred Management Fee capped at 5 years on the exit sale price, so you benefit from the growth in value of your apartment over time. Learn more about our fees here.

Freedom to move within our villages

Our residents have the flexibility to move into any Aura owned apartment in any of our villages. If your needs change, you can upsize or downsize to an available Aura owned apartment in The Avenue Maroochydore or another Aura village.

Personally invested for the long term

Aura’s directors Tim Russell and Mark Taylor personally own and manage our villages and intend to remain intimately involved in their operation for the long term. This means you’ll have peace of mind knowing that you’ll always be in good hands with direct access to management who really care.
