Heading into Retirement?
Why Australia Should be on Your List
When we head into retirement, we want to enjoy our time and chill the hell out, spending time with loved ones, preferably in wonderful surroundings that allow us to sit back and take stock of our lives. There are many destinations that allow that, aside from staying at home, but one which time and time again proves to be the perfect retirement destination, is Australia.
Let’s explore that question a little.
Australia is laid-back
We know that the low pace of life and the chilled out vibe is something Australia is famous for, and for that reason alone the country is one of the best places for ex-pats to retire to. If you’ve spent your working life rushing around and looking at the clock constantly, you can pick a beachside dwelling to head to during your twilight years, and enjoy the slower pace of life. Alternatively, you could decide to head to a city, because even though they are huge metropolis’ in their own right, they are still very chilled out, which is the perfect blend of amenities and facilities, with the slow retirement vibe.
Exploration is very easy indeed
There are many places in Australia to visit when you retire, and the country is also very easy to get around. You can certainly fulfil your travel dreams when you have more time, and Australia is certainly a country which needs time to fully see and enjoy! Hire a campervan and make your slow way around, or perhaps choose a few mini trips – whatever calls out to you.
There are many other people who have retired to Australia
You won’t be alone, as Australia is certainly one of the most popular retirement destinations around. You can easily make new friends from all around the world, as well as probably from the same country as you, whilst settling into your new life in whichever part of Australia you choose.
Cost of living is relatively low
Compared to many other countries, such as the USA or UK, Australia is a low cost of living country, especially if you avoid the big cities. This means you can enjoy the surroundings and a higher standard of living, for much less in the way of cost – what could be better than that?
Aside from these practical reasons, retiring to Australia is basically a dream, and if it is something you have always wanted to do, why not start working towards it? Yes, you’re going to need to save, but in terms of making dreams come true, the work starts now!
