"A Pristine Country Town"

Gloucester really is idyllic rolling hills, safe neighbourhoods, country ethos. Having grown up in this town, I feel very grateful to have had such a wholesome and safe childhood. This town is perfect for small families, city folk wanting a country change and retirees. There are a handful of small schools, where the children receive more one on one learning and assistance. Two supermarkets, pubs, cafes and a great family bakery. Gloucester is very central to other regional cities and the coast.

"Top tidy town with a stunning backdrop"

Gloucester is a friendly, supportive and safe town. There is great community spirit and many opportunities to experience nature from walking trips into Barrington National park to the local community gardens all organised by local community groups. The town is geared more towards older residents but there are still many opportunities for younger residents with a culture of nurturing sporting talent, and many opportunities such as river kayaking, horse riding and mountain biking which are not found elsewhere.
Pros
  • Great community spirit
  • Many activities to get involved in
  • Natural wonderland
  • friendly people
  • quiet and rural
Cons
  • 1 hour drive to coast and large shopping centre
  • Not much night life
