Mercy Place Rice Village, Victoria

A balanced lifestyle by the coast.

Mercy Place Rice Village is a close-knit rural community where you have choices and opportunities to enjoy life your way. It’s all about balance: convenience and comfort; city and seaside; security and independence.

Located in south central Geelong, we’re within a stone’s throw of the Geelong city centre and perched on the gateway to the rugged natural beauty of the Great Ocean Road. Sip a latte in Geelong or explore the coastline: the choice is yours.

Choice is all around you in the village, too. Join in on the fun with vibrant social activities, or kick up your feet and relax at home. Enjoy the assurance of having health professionals and a residential aged care home on site, while maintaining your independence and living life on your terms.
