Seniors Festival Off to Great Start

Now in its 59th year, NSW Seniors Festival is the largest festival for seniors in the Southern Hemisphere, reaching up to 500,000 seniors each year.

NSW Seniors Festival gives people aged over 60 years the chance to make new friends or get together with old ones at an array of local community events, many which are free or heavily discounted.
