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, 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.
