Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The "Penguin Guide to Retirement Hotspots" is a one-stop guide to the 100 best places to retire in Australia and New Zealand. The author has visited every location listed in the book - every state is covered - and summarises their suitability as a retirement option with at-a-glance facts and a user-friendly run down of each town or area. The aspects of each location described include population, climate, location, transport, hospitals, retirement villages, local newspapers, recreation, shopping, dining, social activity and real estate. This book is targeted at those who have already retired and also those who are planning for their retirement.

Author Biography

Rick Osborn was born in Sydney in 1943. He spent the majority of his working life in advertising, rising through the ranks to become GM and then MD of the Sydney office of the George Patterson advertising company. Rick travelled the length and breadth of Australia and New Zealand while researching this book, and has narrowed his ultimate choice of retirement hotspots to two locations: Sydney (either the northern or eastern harbour suburbs) and Hervey Bay. The other locations that Rick could happily retire to are: Albany (WA), the Mornington Peninsula (Victoria), Adelaide's Beach suburbs, Burleigh Heads (Queensland) and Bowral, Byron Bay, Coffs Harbour and Jervis Bay (all in NSW).
