Explore cuisines

When it comes to dining, Glen Waverley is ahead of the pack. The lively strip of Kingsway is its culinary heart – a strong Asian influence is reflected in the likes of restaurants Wonton House Secret Kitchen, Hong Kong Dim Sum and Dainty Sichuan. In and around Melbourne, few things are more important than coffee – here, locals head to Black Flat Coffee Brewers for their morning brew, amongst a range of great cafes.

Go golfing

With the luxury of time, retirement is the ideal moment to discover a new sport or indulge in a lifelong passion for golf. The Glen Waverley Golf Course is popular with experienced golfers as well as those who are new to the game. The 18-hole suburban golf course shoulders Jells Park, which, with more than nine kilometres of bike paths, linking to the Dandenong Creek Trail and the Scotchmans Creek Trail, is a pretty space to walk, jog or cycle.
