The Ninth Middle Ridge is more than your home, it is a community of welcoming and supportive neighbours who will quickly become your friends. You’ll never be lonely in our vibrant community where there’s always someone to join you for a coffee, meet you at the billiards table, challenge you to a game of cards or mahjong, or share your love of crafts. For golfers, the Toowoomba Golf Club is on your doorstep.
When you downsize from the family home or from the land, The Ninth provides a relaxed lifestyle where the maintenance is our responsibility. Your Village Manager and staff is on hand to support you. There will be no lightbulbs to change or lawns to mow. You’ve put in the hard work – now it’s time to reap the rewards.
Our low-rise village, providing premium living, is unlike any other retirement community on the Darling Downs. Residents are able to move effortlessly around the air-conditioned ‘vertical village’ and safely access the communal facilities via lifts in all weather conditions. All residents are owner-occupiers so you’ll know everyone by name!
Situated on Rowbotham Street, the village is amongst quality properties in the established, sought-after suburb of Middle Ridge, with all Toowoomba’s lifestyle, commercial and medical facilities nearby.
To support your active and social lifestyle, residents share a range of community facilities, including a gym, billiards area, wine room, library, craft room, residents’ lounge, multi-purpose function room, outdoor entertaining and barbecue areas. Our mission is to ensure your life at The Ninth Middle Ridge is just the way it should be … all about you.

One of the major benefits of over-60s’ living at The Ninth Middle Ridge is the carefully considered design features incorporated into our apartments and facilities, including easy access via secure lifts. Discreet design features eliminate trip risks with hobless showers and flat thresholds at all entrances, enabling you to age safely and independently in your own home for many years to come.

When you move into The Ninth, you have peace of mind knowing that you are safe and secure in your apartment with easy access to in-home services if you need them. You’ll be free from home maintenance and have the support of your Village Manager, leaving you more time to relax, socialise, savour the delights of the Darling Downs or just lock up and holiday away whenever you like.

For many years, retirees have been seeking quality, modern retirement living options close to shops, restaurants, cafes and medical facilities in the area they know and love. But this style of retirement living has been in short supply in Toowoomba with the only option being the over-50s’ lifestyle resorts made up of individual villas scattered across large, remote sites.
Here at The Ninth Middle Ridge, we have filled this gap. Aura Holdings’ style of ‘vertical villages’ with spacious apartments requires less land so can be built in highly desirable locations close to all essential services. The Ninth’s low-rise design provides safe access to facilities via lifts, without stairs or trip hazards. Opened in October 2022, our stunning community offers 75 apartments and penthouses designed for seniors with premium fixtures and fittings.
Cox Architecture, one of Australia’s most experienced and award-winning design companies, has been appointed to design The Ninth Middle Ridge. Cox has contributed to some of Queensland’s most recognisable projects including the James Street Markets, the Kurilpa Bridge and the Waltzing Matilda Museum in Winton.
Cox staff have chosen a low-rise ‘stepped’ design for The Ninth Middle Ridge to minimise any impact on the golf course and neighbours, while maximising views for the village residents. The Ninth will be constructed around a ‘village green’ at the heart of the three buildings.
