What do you love most about where you live?

Where do you always take out-of-town guests when they come for a visit?

What’s the one thing you want people to know about your little corner of Australia?

We know that many members of the Starts at 60 and Travel at 60 communities live in some really interesting parts of Australia – and we want to know more!

Whether you live in the outback, on the beach, in a big city or in a country town, if you’d love the opportunity to sing the praises of your town (or suburb or village), please take a look at the Q&A below.

You don’t have to answer every question – although you absolutely can if you want to! Just answer the questions that strike a chord with you and will help paint a brilliant picture of your Aussie town.

Send your answers – together with a photo of you – to [email protected]. It’s that easy!
