Accommodation Pricing and Information

We are required by the Federal Government to publish and provide new residents with information regarding our rooms, services and pricing.

Broadly there are three types of charges:

  1. Basic Daily fee – set by the Government and payable by every resident currently $61.96/day (based on 85% of the single aged pension).
  2. A Means Tested fee – this is determined by Centrelink and will be advised to you and Tandara in writing. Tandara is required to collect this fee on behalf of the Government.
  3. Residents have the choice to pay for their accommodation either as a refundable deposit (a lump sum also known as a Refundable Accommodation Payment or “RAD”) or an equivalent daily payment (a periodic payment also known as a Daily Accommodation Payment or “DAP”) or a combination of both. These charges may apply or depending upon your individual financial circumstances or they may be partially or fully subsidised by the Government.
