In a change as surprising to me as anyone who knows me, I moved back to Ky in late 2014.
In mid-2013, pretty much on the spur of the moment, I bought an old red-brick house not far from where I first went to school. It was in poor shape, but with the help of a great local builder and a raft of tradies, she’s all fixed up and very homely now.
Life here is quiet and unremarkable, much as you would expect for a small town in the heart of a fruit-growing, dairy producing district. But it has its advantages. There’s no energy of rushing or busyness to get drawn into. The air is clean. You can see more of the sky. Everything in town is walking distance away. And so far, we’ve been far enough from the city to avoid any real COVID problems.
As luck would have it, a 2020 study found Kyabram the most economically resilient regional town. While in 2019, it was reportedly the second-best place to retire in Victoria.
