27 Giles Street, Mirboo North VIC 3871

South Gippsland Council and Local Government Area (LGA)


Strzelecki House is located in the historic township of Mirboo North in the north-eastern corner of the South Gippsland Shire nestled in the Strzelecki Ranges. We are a beautiful country residence yet also conveniently located near Main Street, so that a quick walk to the local chocolate shop and famous bakery is just a stroll away. We offer 60 places and have both single and double rooms with private ensuites and shared ensuites. This arrangement provides companionship and is perfect for couples that would like to live together with the benefit of 24 hour care.

All residents enjoy our communal lounge, sun rooms, dining room, and an enclosed courtyard and we also feature a cinema room, complete with popcorn facilities and choc-tops from the wonderful lifestyle staff.

Our comprehensive lifestyle program includes individual, group, and community activities. Residents are heavily involved in our community, local carnivals and senior citizen functions and we have our own bus and often head off to Inverloch for fish and chips on the beach.

About Residential Aged Care

In the past, a distinction was drawn between aged care homes that offered "high level care" (which were commonly known as "nursing homes") and those that offered "low level care" (which were commonly known as "hostels"). From 1 July 2014 this distinction has ceased to apply in relation to permanent residential aged care, although it does continue to apply in relation to temporary respite care. Aged care homes can incorporate "extra service", which provides a higher standard of accommodation and services (such as meals) for an additional fee. Aged care homes that are not accredited, but which offer similar care and services, may be referred to as "Supported Living". See our Terminology page for detailed explanations of terms that relate to aged care, home care and retirement villages.
