It used to be that retirement was all about winding down and preparing for the last stage of your life. Now a new generation of retirees are seeing it as a new beginning, a chance to live their lives the way they’ve always wanted at Pozières Retirement Village in Port Macquarie.
Whether that’s indulging in a passion such as golf, swimming in the ocean every day or catching up with friends over coffee, experts now widely acknowledge that these truly can be the ‘Golden Years’.
Surrounded by beautiful bushlands close to the beach and near a vibrant town centre, Pozières Retirement village on Ocean Drive in Port Macquarie offers an entirely new vision in retirement living.
A vibrant coastal location
Nowadays, more often than not, retirees want to enjoy an active lifestyle for as long as they can.
That means they want to live in a place where it’s easy to get outside and enjoy outdoor pursuits, to keep physically fit, but where they are also surrounded by a vibrant and stimulating local community.
Green spaces and unspoiled beaches are a must as well as the buzz and convenience of an urban hub (without the expense and hassles of a big city like traffic and pollution.)
Just four hours’ drive from Sydney, Port Macquarie has some remarkable natural advantages but it also has a cosmopolitan CBD making it the ideal place to live during the golden years.
With a sub-tropical climate and mild winters, locals are able to enjoy the area’s 17 pristine beaches all year round. During the summer months you might just be lucky enough to see some of the approximately 16,000 humpback whales that migrate north along the coast each year.
If you head inland you’ll discover a lush hinterland that is a rich food bowl so it’s no surprise that Port Macquarie has a thriving food scene.
You can enjoy everything from hatted dining experiences to fresh fish and chips beside the sea. Head to the local farmers’ market and stock up on just-picked fruit and vegetables as well as gourmet treats.
