New Dawn Guest Home

People you trust caring for people you love

A caring, welcoming environment is the hallmark of New Dawn Guest Home, a 30-bed, Level One, residential care facility providing personalized and professional care in a bright, comfortable setting for people with a variety of disabilities.

New Dawn Guest Home Limited was established in 1977 when a residential care home in Whitney Pier was facing closure. New Dawn Enterprises Limited purchased the facility to ensure that residential care would continue to be available to the community.

In 1993, residents of the Guest Home were moved to a newly constructed building in Pine Tree Park, a decommissioned military base on the outskirts of Sydney. Originally designed to meet Level Two nursing-home specifications, New Dawn Guest Home enables its staff to provide optimum care to residents in a warm and attractive setting.
