‘Celebrating Ageing’s Glorious Diversity

This year’s program features a range of entertainment, adventure and fun-focussed activities across sports and the arts, and even concerts such as the Festival Big Band Dance. Food tours and skills-building exercises – such as the High Tea with IT computer skills sessions – are all part of a jam-packed Festival program.

Events are free or low-cost and free public transport will be available for Seniors Card holders during the Festival’s first week from 2 to 9 October.

For more information about events and activities, visit or pick up a free Victorian Seniors Festival program at any Coles store, local library, council office or neighbourhood house. You can also call 1300 135 090 to have a program sent directly to you
