A proud history

Opening in 2010, the award-winning Oceangrove Village has been thoughtfully designed for convenience, offering an unrivalled location just steps away from Dee Why beach, shops, transport and the café lifestyle.


Dee Why RSL Founded

On 26 January 1937, a group of 13 men gathered together to form the Dee Why/Collaroy Sub-Branch of the RSL. This was the beginning of Dee Why RSL.


Oceangrove Concept

In 2002, Dee Why RSL recognised the need for a centrally located, resident-centric, well run village for seniors.


Building Oceangrove

The construction of Oceangrove commenced in April 2009, with 70% of apartments sold off the plan.


Oceangrove Opens

Oceangrove welcomed the first residents into their apartments on 15 November 2010.



Oceangrove awarded Best Seniors Living Development in Australia by The Property Council of Australia.

Oceangrove is proudly owned and operated by Dee Why RSL — proud locals for over 70 years.

Oceangrove retirement villages in the heart of Sydney’s Northern Beaches offer unparalleled convenience, within walking distance to the beach, major transport routes, shops, medical services, and a range of recreational activities in Dee Why. The 76 architecturally designed apartments cater to active and discerning over-55s looking to downsize without compromising their lifestyle.

At Oceangrove, you’ll find modern community spaces, tropical gardens, decked alfresco areas, lounges, a library, gym, and more, which serve as extensions of your home and provide spaces to relax and socialise with fellow residents, family, and friends. The professional Oceangrove staff is dedicated to enhancing the well-being of all residents.
