Read What Others Say About Our Books And Speaking
‘My wife and I read ’ Where to Retire in Australia " by Owen and Jill Weeks and found it to be an accurate, sensible and practical book.
The authors have clearly done their research with a professional impartiality that makes the book a very useful reference text.
We put the book to the test on a wide area (a 3 hour radius from Sydney) and felt that the authors conclusions were on the money.
We relied on the information provided and after 5 years here in Singleton, none of it was inaccurate.
Highly recommend anyone who is wondering where to retire in Australia to grab a copy of their second edition'.
