Folks live in Hervey Bay now. Much more civilised weather to what I grew up in at Townsville. Awesome winters but I don’t think I could handle the Summer humidity anymore. Perth is generally hotter, but much much drier and the rains are in Winter.
Everyone's folks move to Hervey Bay eventually. Precisely because of the weather. It is Australia's version of Florida.
In fact, the median age in Hervey Bay is 45, whereas the rest of Australia is 37.
I was down there just recently (visiting my partner's folks), such a great and relaxed place. Can't wait to retire there myself one day- you do get used to the humidity
