AT 100, Ronald Moffatt still lives by himself and cooks all his own meals.

After spending most of his life on farms in the Millmerran region, Mr Moffatt now lives on the Sunshine Coast.

"I've been a farmer all my life until the last few years. I sold my farm and bought a little place up here," Mr Moffatt said.

"I started off as a dairy farmer and went from there to wheat growing. I had sheep, I had pigs, I had everything trying to make a living.

"I loved my tractor. I had a crawler tractor all my life, but I eventually bought a wheel tractor.

"I sat on that tractor all day every day."

Mr Moffatt has seven children, 44 great grandchildren, and three great-great grandchildren. His youngest great grandchild is just one week old.

Mr Moffatt said he didn't have any secrets to living to 100.

"I've been very healthy, I don't have to take any prescription tablets, I still live on my own and cook all my own tucker," he said.

"I worked reasonably hard my whole life.

"I think I'm going fairly well for the time being."

His advice for the younger generations was to "follow your dreams and do your best."

"I've come out on top really now, and I have no regrets on what I've done," Mr Moffatt said.
