Every year in NSW, Seniors Festival is held to celebrate seniors and their contributions to the community.
If you are over 60, you will have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of events all across the state. It is a great time to get in touch with your local community, make new friends, and meet old ones. This year, Seniors Festival will take place on 4 – 15 April.
Here are some of the things taking place near Chatswood during the festival. All of these are completely free, but if you are interested in joining be sure to contact the organiser as space may be limited.
