Our History

In 1968 Barbara Rennie and Reverend John Clarkson, members of the local Anglican diocese, founded what is today known as The Good Shepherd Home. In 1972, the first of our purpose-built aged care facilities was constructed. We have since expanded and renovated to accommodate the growing demand for exceptional residential aged care in Townsville. Over the past 50 years The Good Shepherd home has evolved to meet the changing needs of our community. Today, the facility remains true to its founding mission of providing compassionate and outstanding care to those in need, while embracing modern practices and technologies to enhance the lives of our residents.

Older adults, or their loved ones, need not feel like residential aged care means their loved ones are a world away.
