NSW Seniors Festival

The festival celebrates the role and contributions of older adults to our local communities. It's the largest of its kind in the southern hemisphere, with over 500,000 people attending each year.

Let's celebrate with a morning tea and discussions by awarded local identities, showcasing their willingness to “reach beyond” to help the community.
