Looking to retire in Brisbane?

As Australia’s third largest capital city, Brisbane is a growing and vibrant city that caters to all ages. It offers city facilities while being close to beaches, bushland and mountains, with plenty of activities and attractions to keep you occupied.

At Waterford, you’re less than an hour’s drive from the sandy shores of the Gold Coast and it’s many tourist attractions. Whether you go for a day trip or take your family for a beachside holiday, you’re never far from home.

You can also enjoy shopping at the many retail precincts including the Queen St Mall, Westfield and Logan Hyperdome. There’s arts and culture with QPAC and Queensland Art Gallery, food and wine with Eat Street Markets and the annual Ekka (Exhibition), and spaces to relax like Roma Street Parkland and Mt Coot-tha.

With domestic and international airports in Brisbane and the Gold Coast, you are only a short flight in Australia, the Pacific and SE Asia regions, ideal for those who love to travel.

For those who love the water, the Brisbane region is teeming with cascading waterfalls, expansive lakes and trickling waterholes. Strap on your hiking boots and hit the trails to discover cooling waterfalls and waterholes, or take in a spot of fishing, boating or paddling on one of Brisbane’s lakes. Take a day and cruise the Brisbane River on a Ferry or a short drive will have you at one of the many surrounding beaches.
