Looking for the ideal place to retire?

Here at CLK we know that Echuca Moama is a great place to live, and each week we meet people who have chosen to move to our little slice of heaven here on the mighty Murray River.

And why wouldn’t you want to live here! For a medium sized regional city, we offer so much for all ages. Located only 2.5 hours from Melbourne, we have fantastic facilities, including great schools and a brand new state-of-the-art hospital. There’s also the allure of the majestic Murray River - ideal for slowing down, recreation and leisure – and we are lucky enough to live in a relatively safe community. Not to mention a strong community spirit and a way of life that is the envy of our city cousins.

We know it, and the many visitors that flock to our region each year also know it, but Echuca Moama is now being recognised as a haven for retirees after being named in the top ten places to retire by a recent First National Real Estate report.

First National Real Estate recently listed its Top Ten Places to Retire across this wide, brown land of ours and Echuca came in at an impressive number four!

In its report First National described Echuca as “one of Australia’s most affordable retiree destinations”.

“Located on the banks of the Murray River, it’s a popular destination for those looking for a tree change from Melbourne or Sydney. Echuca is a major regional centre but retains a strong sense of community and a solid country aesthetic. It’s a popular tourist destination for families who like a camping holiday on or by the river and, as such, it has plenty of inexpensive places to eat out. Echuca is well serviced with associations and clubs so retirees will find no shortage of activities to take part in and new people to meet.”

We firmly agree with First National on this one and agree also that when it comes to quality of life and choosing your ideal location for retirement Echuca well and truly punches above its weight.
