Quick Launch

Seniors Festival

Print this Page

Seniors Festival is a celebration of life and growth that encourages seniors to try new experiences, learn new skills and actively participate in the community.  

Events throughout the festival embody the theme 'Be Inspired' by providing seniors opportunities to:

  • be active and healthy
  • try something new 
  • be recognised
  • be independent 
  • get more involved in their communities.

Council has promoted this annual event for more than 30 years and our local celebrations are among the biggest in the state.

​For more information about Seniors Festival contact Tracey Needham on (02) 4227 7245 or email
