The purpose of the study is to examine the Grey Nomads group and their health and social status as they travel around Australia. This includes any health or social and community concerns whilst travelling the Australian continent and, any issues or problems with access to health, social and community facilities while travelling. The interviews will focus on your ideas and experiences connected to your specific health, social and community needs while travelling Australia, and specifically while holidaying in Central Queensland. Grey nomads can be defined as, ‘a portion of the older population in Australia who choose to use their later years and retirement as opportunities for travel and leisure, mainly within the confines of the Australian continent’ (Higgs and Quirk 2007: 251).
