    Abstract

    Baby boomers are a generation with the potential to challenge traditional ideas about ageing, retirement, and leisure. However, little is known about the lived experience of leisure in the lives of baby boomers as they approach and move into retirement. This research used in-depth interviews to explore the leisure experiences of 55 female baby boomers living in the Yass Valley Local Government Area of rural New South Wales, Australia
