Are you thinking of retiring to the Sunshine Coast?
Do you want to downsize your current property to a smaller, more manageable home, stop mowing, fencing and forever cleaning, and have more opportunity to socialise?
On the Sunshine Coast, ‘over 55’ villages are more ‘resort’, than retirement. Complexes are purpose built around comfort and community with options of single level villas amongst landscaped gardens through to waterfront apartments. Facilities can offer swimming pools, tennis courts, community halls and transport. If you’re not ready for community villages many areas offer a selection of modern, low maintenance properties that are walk-to-shop or on public transport routes, where you’ll feel safe and secure in friendly neighbourhoods.
Residents of the Sunshine Coast have access to a number of world class medical facilities. Three large public hospitals and five private hospitals are spread throughout the region, with another two currently in construction stages. Purpose built health hubs house specialists, medical centres and rehabilitation services.
Public transport on the Sunshine Coast includes buses, trains and taxis. Queensland Rail operates a regular train service between the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane. Although the rail line is limited to the hinterland, connecting bus services are available to most suburbs. This high frequency bus services provided by Sunbus can pick you up anywhere on the designated route network, as long as it is safe to do so.
If you look forward to the weekly shopping expedition you will be pleasantly surprised with the many destinations on offer. Sunshine Plaza Maroochydore, Noosa Civic and Sunland Caloundra are the main shopping centres and to find that one-off gift or outfit, visit one of the many specialty shops or weekend markets dotted throughout the coast.
Most importantly, do you wish to maintain important relationships with friends and family, be an active part of the local community and still contribute to society?
Now is the time to pursue your favourite hobbies or pastimes and investigate new ones?
Seniors are no longer sitting at home with a rug over their knees. With the ‘use it or lose it attitude’ there is a never ending list of things to do with your new found ‘time and freedom’.
Keep your body and mind young with golf, lawn bowls, fishing, movies and church activities. Volunteer your time and experience and make new friends at co-ops, charity causes, and surf lifesaving and for the more adventurous lend a hand at Australia Zoo. Further your education or share your knowledge with the University of the 3rd Age or free library workshops.
The grandchildren will love visiting Nana & Pop on the Sunshine Coast. Over the holidays teach them how to fish or take them to Maleny Dairies farm and show them where ‘milk’ comes from. Create memorable moments. From eating ice creams and building sand castles to visiting the local attractions like Australia Zoo and Sea Life there are experiences to cater for every age and family budget.
