Starts at 60 regularly showcases retirement living possibilities for readers looking to take that important next step. Here’s a premium option for Melbourne readers who want to maintain an active city life.

For some, the ideal retirement is quiet and relaxed: a community by the beach; a comfortable suburban house; a countryside retirement community.

But for those who enjoy a livelier city lifestyle, living inner city gives you easy access to: the social cafe meet-ups; the amazing fine dining; the bustling arts scene; the gorgeous architecture and design; the chances to pursue practically absolutely any hobby or interest.
