The Top 6 Reasons Why Regional Living Is Where It’s At

Regional living has gained significant popularity in recent years, with more and more people choosing to leave the hustle and bustle of city life behind in favour of a more relaxed, community-focused lifestyle. We sat down with Resi Venture’s Marketing Manager, Elissa Hayes to discuss the top six reasons why regional living is where it’s at.

  1. Natural Surroundings:

One of the most significant advantages of regional living is the access to natural surroundings. Unlike the concrete-jungle-life of the city, living in regional areas provides you with the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of nature. Whether it’s the serene mountain landscapes, open spaces and abundance of parks or the picturesque coastal towns, regional living offers a chance to reconnect and enjoy the simple pleasures of life.

  1. Community and Lifestyle:

Living in the suburbs is all about community and lifestyle. It offers places to connect with your neighbours, safe streets for kids to ride their bikes and play and plenty of opportunities to engage in local events and activities. This sense of community can lead to stronger social connections and a greater sense of belonging. Plus, the slower pace allows for a more balanced and fulfilling lifestyle, with more time for hobbies, family, and personal growth.

  1. Lower Cost of Living:

An obvious advantage of regional living is the lower cost of living. Housing and other life essentials are often more affordable in regional areas compared to major cities. This can be a significant factor for those looking to enter the property market, save money or achieve financial stability.

  1. Better Work-Life Balance:

Regional living can offer a better work-life balance for many people, especially if you have the option to work from home or have local employment. With great transport options to ensure a relaxing commute and a more relaxed pace of life, it’s easier to manage work and personal responsibilities. This creating a greater sense of well-being.

  1. Opportunities for Outdoor Activities:

What better way than to start your day with a walk outdoors in crisp fresh air? The regions are often home to a wide range of outdoor activities, from hiking and camping to fishing and water sports. This can provide a healthy and enjoyable way to stay active and connect with nature. Additionally, many regions offer unique cultural experiences, such as local festivals which are great for families alike to enjoy the outdoors.

  1. Close Proximity to Major Cities:

There is a huge focus on the development and gentrification of regional areas and as such they are benefitting from being close to major cities (but still at arm’s length) allowing for easy access to urban amenities and employment hubs.


Whether you’re looking for a change of pace or a chance to reconnect with nature and your community, regional living may be the perfect choice for you. Visit to view our regional projects.
