The Northern Beaches offers seniors a diverse range of educational and volunteer opportunities, and social and exercise activities to help keep you active, engaged, and connected with your community.

Northern Beaches Seniors Directory

The best place to start researching activities for seniors is in our Seniors Directory. Copies of the Directory will be available from Council customer service centres, libraries and community centres after COVID lockdown restrictions have eased.

Education and leisure

There are a number of education and leisure activities on the Northern Beaches. These include art, craft and hobby groups, cards and board games, computer groups, and education and learning on a range of topics including history, photography, technology and languages. View the list in the Seniors Directory

Fitness and exercise

Organised activities include aqua fitness, bowls, croquet, table tennis, Lifeball, gentle exercise, walking groups, table tennis, and various styles of dancing. View the list in the Seniors Directory

You can search for exercise programs for seniors in your area on the NSW Health Active & Healthy website.

We also have seniors programs at the Warringah Aquatic Centre and Manly "Andrew Boy Charlton" Fitness Centre.

Social clubs and outings

Social connection is of vital importance at any age and particularly so as we get older. There are plenty of options on offer including seniors clubs, Aboriginal and multicultural groups, luncheon clubs, and service clubs. View the list in the Seniors Directory

Volunteering

Council's volunteer programs are a great way to be in involved in your local community.

Council is also working with community organisations to support their essential services during COVID-19. View our list of community volunteer opportunities.
