The Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) continues to successfully promote a network of Lodges as a traditional Fraternity, catering for both men and women, in Australia and New Zealand through the Grand Lodge of Australasia. The Lodge is a timeless fraternity (or club) that promotes principle centred teachings through an order of ascending degrees of learning. The aim of the Lodge is to "elevate the character" of members through learning principles and morals, and through conducting business in a formal ceremonial fashion.
Personal Development Philosophy
The purpose of the Order for hundreds of years has been to provide a framework that promotes the personal development of members. The Fraternity is based on the principles of Friendship, Love, Truth, Faith, Hope and Charity, and these principles form the foundation of the lessons for the contemplation of members. These lessons constitute the Degrees of Odd Fellowship, which include written and visual presentations for members to participate in at meetings, and reflect on as they undertake their day to day lives.

We came across Winzor Retirement Estate, we liked it straight away mainly because it had privacy in the back garden. Winzor Retirement Estate isn’t too big which we also liked, it means you get to know everyone and it’s secure. It’s a great lifestyle with all amenities close by and we don’t have to worry about maintenance problems as most are handled by KeyInvest. We would certainly recommend this village to anyone thinking of moving into a retirement village.

I have a lovely 2 bedroom unit, drive in lock up garage, a manageable front and back garden and wonderfully caring neighbors. I can also be in the city by bus in 15 minutes and to the beach in 40 minutes. I now have the time to do the things I enjoy, like overseas holidays. You can just shut the door and know everything is fine. It gives you a sense of freedom and it’s comforting knowing you have a good village manager - any problems and he is there to fix it. It’s a real feeling of peace of mind, my family are close. I am happy and they’re happy.

We are delighted with our new home here at Chiton. The quality and attention to detail is second to none. We believe we are very fortunate to have the opportunity to enjoy the unique aspects of this 7 star eco village lifestyle. The wetlands walks are a delight and the vista from our living room is so peaceful; bird watching has become our new “hobby”. Truly a wonderful relaxing place to spend our retirement.

For Kay and I moving into the McLaren Vale Lodge, back in February 2015, was just what we needed. We were at that stage when “downsizing” was a real option for us. The 3 bedroom unit gave us all the space we needed including a home office as well as room for the grandchildren when visiting. Living space is more than adequate and with it all being newly refurbished it’s so easy to maintain. We were welcomed by everybody we came in contact with including staff as well as residents and new neighbours.

Four and a half years ago we moved from the city to Woodside Lodge and continue to be very happy with our decision. Our modern villa provides us with privacy and allows us to put our own imprint internally as well as outside in the garden. It was important to us that our family, especially our grandchildren, found our new location a place where they were welcome and wanted to visit. This is evident by their regular visits. Family members refer to Darrol as the unofficial ‘ambassador for Woodside and the Adelaide Hills’.
