Doutta Galla Queens Park aged care residence in Moonee Ponds is situated opposite Queen’s Park Lake, in a soothing and peaceful setting.
Our residence is a short walk from Puckle Street. Our staff, residents, families and volunteers are proud of the homelike atmosphere they create together. There is always something going on – a busy lifestyle program keeps everyone active and socially connected.
The local swimming pool, recreation centre, racecourse, theatre and library are all nearby so residents can continue to enjoy their favourite activities.
Queens Park has a group of dedicated volunteers and some have been with us for more than 13 years. They support individual residents and facilitate activities and workshops. Our famous pop-up cafe called “Café on Queens” was started by volunteers and is a weekly highlight.
For individuals who like to use their hands and create, we can suggest participating in various handy-person activities.

Understanding how aged care pricing works can be confusing. In simple terms the Commonwealth Government determines all care fees both the basic daily fee and they manage the means testing process.
The basic daily care fee is paid by every resident and covers living costs of personal care, some group activities, meals, cleaning, laundry, heating and cooling. The fee is set at 85% of the full single aged pension.
The home sets the price of the room based on the size, style and amenities provided. Residents can choose to pay a lump sum known as a RAD or daily, known as DAP. See our pricing examples below based on the room types we have at Footscray and using the daily accommodation payment (DAP) option.
