The McKellar Centre at Geelong provides a range of rehabilitation services, residential aged care and palliative care. Buildings at the heart of the complex were demolished to better connect the hospital community and provide a diverse space for social events, exercise, rehabilitation or quiet reflection.

The space includes an amphitheatre and stage, picnic facilities, intimate garden areas and a reflection pond. The rehabilitative purpose of the facility is enhanced by designed elements such as ramps, stairs and a variety of ground surface treatments to develop mobility and access training. Covered walkways linking the separate buildings were also restored.
