Providing a Safe and Happy Home for our Residents.

Welcome to Melaleuca

Small, Independent and Caring.

Melaleuca is a medium-sized (48 bed), high care facility, who provide quality care for the elderly people from Devonport and the surrounding areas. Melaleuca is a non-profit, non-sectarian, non-political organisation managed by professional staff under the direction of a Board of Management, whose members serve in a voluntary capacity.

Melaleuca, which emerged from a strong community commitment, has a vision to the future to keep abreast of modern technology and new caring techniques in order to maintain the highest levels of accommodation and care for our residents. We are proud of our "family" oriented facility that is small enough for staff to know all of our residents and families but large enough to provide a safe happy environment for the care, safety and well-being of our residents.

About Our Home

Melaleuca is a small homely facility with just 48 beds and tranquil surroundings.

Our Rooms

Our rooms have views to either our gardens or across the East Devonport Wetlands to the farmlands and beyond.

Our People

You or your loved ones will be cared for by our well trained, qualified, caring and dedicated staff members.

Bright Courtyards

Our beautiful and well maintained courtyards and gardens are bright, sunny and include a veggie patch for the green thumbs.

Natural Surroundings

Our Intimate and tranquil surroundings adjoin the Mary Binks Wetlands, habitat for many Tasmanian bird species.

The best of both worlds

We're small enough for staff to know all of our residents but large enough to provide a safe and happy environment.

Volunteering at Melaleuca

At Melaleuca Home we value our volunteers as we recognise the important contribution they make to our Home. We have a small group of dedicated volunteers that support our Home and residents in a variety of ways. We offer a supportive environment for our volunteers including an orientation program. We always welcome new volunteers and if you have regular time available (no matter how little) we would love to hear from you.
