About Our Community
Located in the picturesque township of Alstonville, Maranoa Centre sits on truly magnificent grounds. Our luscious rainforest patch has over 30 species of established rainforest trees, including the Moreton Bay Fig tree where many of our residents love to rest and read.
Maranoa Centre provides 90 beds for residents across all levels of care, including dementia care and respite care services. Space, comfort and safety come as standard with all rooms featuring an emergency-monitoring system. Many benefits include a private courtyard, balcony, en-suite bathroom, and other added extras to ensure you live in premium comfort.
At Maranoa, we love getting to know the people we live with. Our Key to Me program makes time for meaningful conversations between our staff and residents – so we can really discover the stories that have made you who you are today.
We believe that getting to know you is the simplest secret to the best possible care. Our skilled staff members never underestimate the power of individual care – it’s what we’re here for. That’s why life at Maranoa has never worked around an itinerary; it works around you. Enjoy the convenience of an on-site hairdresser, podiatrist, physiotherapist, social outings, church services and many other benefits.
Or you may prefer to relax and take in the beauty and peace of the local grounds.
Whatever you choose, Maranoa is your special place to enjoy.

All non-supported residents who have assets above the current partially supported cut off level will be required to pay either a Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) or a lump sum Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) or combination of lump sum refundable accommodation deposit (RAD) and the balance of the RAD as an equivalent Daily Payment (DAP). The pricing listed below is the maximum pricing for the category of the room and may vary depending on your individual circumstances.
To calculate the equivalent daily payment, the refundable accommodation deposit is multiplied by the current maximum permissible interest rate (MPIR)* and divided by 365 days.
For example, a refundable deposit of $550,000 would have an equivalent daily payment of:
i.e. ($550,000 x 5.78%) / 365 = $87.09 per day
Optional Services Provided at an Additional Cost
We have a number of optional additional services available including the daily delivery of the local or national newspaper of your choice and beauty treatments including hairdressing. For a full list of optional services, please contact us.
