Our approach is simple, residents come first

The Ninth Middle Ridge 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 retirement communities in various stage of council approval, development and operation in Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast and Toowoomba. Together, Tim and Mark have almost 40 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 Ninth Middle Ridge that is completely attuned to 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, 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.

Our door is always open and we promise to put the needs of our residents first.

What we believe in


We put people first

We understand that happy, engaged residents are Aura Holdings’ greatest advocates. That’s why our business is centred around creating empowering, respectful environments in our communities that enrich retirees’ lives. We vow to always put our residents first.


We listen and empower

We believe there’s much 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?

Our simple and transparent fee structure

Aura says ‘no’ to complicated 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.

The 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 Ninth Middle Ridge or another Aura village.
