‘The festival for the NOT SO retiring’

Nowadays becoming a senior (from age 55) definitely does not mean ‘retiring’. Today, being a senior is often a fresh start with more time to enjoy a whole range new activities and pursuits.  

The Byron Community Centre is hosting the Byron Shire Seniors Festival & Expo, in collaboration with NSW Seniors Festival, on Tuesday 19thFebruary, from 10am-4pm.

This day is dedicated to the wonderful elders of our community. The theme of the festival is ‘Love Your Life’ with activities to help you continue enjoying your life every day. We do not believe that becoming a senior means your life is over, instead we think that the rest of our lives are just beginning.

The festival will have information sharing, entertainment, and lots of activities, as well as hand, neck and shoulder massages being offered throughout the day. Fearless Films ‘Growing Bold Not Old’ will be screening in a special viewing room.

Relax and enjoy the Theatre Program, browse a range of exhibitors upstairs in the Cavanbah Room and informative verandah chats, including –

  • Health & Wellness – alternative health care and nutrition
  • Finance/Banking/Insurance/Wills
  • Aged Care Options
  • Understanding your Aged Pension – all you need to know about benefits
  • End of Life & After Death Care – demystifying your choices
  • Volunteering – live longer by caring for those in need

Come along to the Byron Community Centre, 69 Jonson Street, on Tuesday 19th February or contact Pippy Wardell on 6685 6807 for more information.

The Seniors Festival will empower older people, their carers and children to lead fulfilling lives and achieve their potential in their community.
