South Australia

Award-winning wine, wildlife heaven and more!

Spending your retirement in the fourth-largest state of Australia, means living in a place with spectacular landscapes and wildlife, beautiful beaches and top-quality local produce.

South Australia is formed by 12 regions, each one with something unique and special to offer.

Adelaide is the modern coastal capital. It’s a lively city where you can spend the day at the beach, take day-trips to visit hundreds of award-winning wineries and eat at excellent restaurants.

If you’re looking for something completely different, Kangaroo Island and the Eyre Peninsula are the places to explore. Kangaroo Island has a spectacular raw coastline and the Peninsula, exceptional marine life and delicious fresh seafood.

SA has numerous programs and associations doing important work to support retirees and senior citizens. Their objective is to help them stay healthy and engaged in the community. The Catalyst Foundation, for example, helps them find learning and working opportunities.

During your retirement it’s important to have access to a good healthcare system. South Australia has bigger hospitals in busier areas, like the Royal Adelaide Hospital, but also an active local health network providing services in the regional areas.
