12 to 29 February 2020

Every year Northern Beaches Council holds the Northern Beaches Seniors Festival, with a program of themed activities focusing on physical and mental stimulation, food and nutrition, multicultural and intergenerational relationships, technology, accommodation options and local services.

Our festival complements the NSW Seniors Festival, the state-wide event designed to thank, celebrate and recognise seniors for the role they play and the contributions they make to the NSW community.

Northern Beaches Council is committed to working with local community groups, services and individuals for the empowerment and wellbeing of our seniors. Our annual Seniors Festival program aims to encourage those aged 60 and over to connect with the community and develop new skills and interests.
