The Cooinda Difference

resident2Cooinda Aged Care Centre is a non profit organisation, belonging to the Gympie community and is administered by a committee of community minded business people and retired professionals.

Cooinda was established as an Aged Care Facility in 1965 with the support of the local community. It is set against a magnificent country setting on 25 acres in beautiful natural surroundings complete with native trees, kangaroos and many species of birds with its own meandering creek. The grounds provide opportunity for bush walks and seating under shady trees on those warm summer days overlooking beautiful gardens and lawns.
