Mind Your Own Retirement Episode 50

Jun 13, 2020

In episode 50 of the Mind Your Own Retirement podcast, Deeksie and Kaye get back together to talk money, health and travel for those in retirement – or planning it.

First up, author and accountant Dr Adrian Raftery, a.k.a. ‘Mr Taxman’, shares updates on ways retirees can maximise their tax returns as the end of the financial year beckons.

Learn more about the minimums and maximums of the pension drawdown, visit the MrTaxMan website, or follow Mr TaxMan on Facebook and Twitter. Or look for his new book 101 Ways to Save Money on Your Tax Legally

And whether you’re enjoying the sunshine in Broome or dodging rain in Adelaide, it’s still winter all over Australia. So Dr Billy Stoupas, practising GP and spokesperson for the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, highlights the winter maladies we need to avoid, and how to do so.

It’s great to be finally emerging from the strict social distancing triggered by COVID-19, which means travel is right back on the agenda, with New South Wales our first destination in focus. The folk at Destination NSW have just released a list of 213 things to do, revolving around food, culture, nature, wildlife, beaches and Indigenous activities and experiences. We speak with Izabella Lane, tourism coordinator for the Southern Highlands, about this special region of NSW, the main towns of Moss Vale, Mittagong, Bowral, Bundanoon and Berrima, and the amazing Pie Festival that is celebrated across the region in June.

Learn more about the Southern Highlands of New South Wales.

Here's a list of some of NSW’s most sought after adventures across food, culture, Indigenous experiences, nature and wildlife, plus everything aquatic and coastal. Choose your own holiday adventures from NSW's roundup of unique experiences.
