Orygen Recovery is built over two levels, with 10 bedrooms on each level. The lower level is called garrang (meaning wattle) and the upper level is called bunjil, (meaning eagle). The names were chosen by young people with lived experience of mental ill-health in consultation with the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung Cultural Heritage Aboriginal Corporation.

Orygen Recovery offers:

  • pleasant, accessible, home-like and environmentally conscious surroundings designed to support young people’s recovery;
  • private bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms for young people plus a communal kitchen, dining and living areas and breakout spaces, visiting areas and green spaces;
  • clinical consulting, staff and support areas; and
  • an outdoor garden for leisure, recreational activities and visits.
