"Rural Living - Safer than City Living"

For a small town it has a lot of big town amenities. A good shopping district, including several major chain stores. Good employment prospects. A substantial youthful population, three primary schools, two high schools, a tafe. Good sporting facilities, across a very broad range of sports.

"good for retirement or raising children."

Great little town with all the shopping you need. People are friendly, lots of seasonal work eg; fruit picking and packing. Lots of schools, private and public. Young is surrounded by small rural villages which give it the real country feel.
