I've seen a whole lot of questions in this website about good retirement investments in a range of countries, but none asking about Australia.
Let me explain a little further my doubts: I'm currently 21 and studying for a BsC in Computer Science in Brazil. I'm planning to get my working visa for Australia as soon as i graduate and I'm not planning to return to this country (you can imagine the reasons, huh). The problem is that i'm curious about how aussies manage to get a good income after retirement. I've done a lot of research about retirement plans on Australia but haven't found a single option that convinced me that that's the best option.
Given a scenario that working as a programmer (my current job and hopefully the one i spend the rest of my life doing!) and earning a ~100k AU$ P/Y (that's a low bet, just for the sake of this example) during my working years, what would be a good investment to ensure a good retirement for me and my partner ? By good, i mean a monthly income that can pay my bills while also giving me the option to travel once in a while, change my car or whatever.
Buying apartments and renting them (shared accomodations or whatever)? Stocks?
Despite this question being very specific, i'm not expecting a very specific question, since economy is changing everyday and what is a good investment today may not be tomorrow. I just want to know the opinion of an Australian regarding future planning. Thanks in advance!
