Discover the Joy of Retirement Living

This is an opportunity for retirees who are interested in gathering information or looking to make the move to a retirement village to meet with representatives from many different villages, all under one roof.

Devoted exclusively to retirement villages and over 55's resorts, these expos provide visitors with a wonderful opportunity for seniors to ask questions and gather information about many different retirement villages and resorts in a short period of time. Whether you are a baby boomer exploring the idea of Over 55's Resort Living, or a senior looking at retirement villages with independent living, assisted or specialist care, or looking for a loved one, these expos are not to be missed. Regardless of whether you're on a pension, a self-funded retiree or still working part time, these retirement village expos are designed to save you time by putting you in touch with high quality lifestyle and investment opportunities for your retirement.

If you are planning your retirement in Australia then these expos are well worth attending, particularly if you are conducting your own financial review of your retirement future. This event will help you to dispel all of the old myths about retirement villages being nursing homes although many villages offer aged care facilities for later on when it is needed. Again, as a Baby Boomer, Senior, whether you're on a pension, self funded retiree or just Over 55, use our site to make contact with suppliers of financial services who have experience and insight into what is needed to help you make the transition into a wonderful retirement lifestyle and investment opportunity.
