Jimbelunga Nursing Centre comes under the Auspices of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Health Service Brisbane Ltd.
Jimbelunga was established to meet the Cultural and Spiritual needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
However, we are very proud of the fact that the facility currently caters for the wide range of people from other cultures and the wider community.
The Hon. Mary Crawford officially opened Jimbelunga in 1994.
We offer many services including:
To provide the best practice and culturally appropriate quality care for all residents.

To promote Jimbelunga Nursing Centre as a home for high quality and holistic nursing that is necessary in aged care.
