Australia’s smallest state

Tasmania is the 26th-largest island in the world and the smallest state in Australia. Spending your retirement here means having world-heritage regions, accessible national parks, charming towns and breathtaking coast right at your doorstep. It also means living in a community with friendly and welcoming people.

Tassie has 5 main regions, each one with something special to offer. You can spend those precious retirement years discovering the quality art scene and beautiful waterways of Hobart and South, the beaches of the East Coast, the convict heritage of the West Coast, the wines of Launceston and North, and the delicious food and nature reserves of the North West.

When you retire to Tasmania, it’s easy to enjoy a healthy over 50s lifestyle and to stay connected with the rest of the country. It has the facilities and services you need, like a major passenger airport in Hobart, several smaller airports, four main public hospitals plus a network of smaller rural hospitals and health services.

Retirees can access the Tasmanian Seniors Card and enjoy discounts on government services, transport, health care, dining, and much more.
