Seniors Week

Each year during Queensland Seniors Week, Cairns Regional Council hosts events and activities to celebrate our community's young-at-heart.

Seniors Week provides an opportunity for older Queenslanders to explore programs and services, events and activities and connect with people of all ages and backgrounds, to celebrate the valuable contributions that older people make in their communities.

Seniors Week aims to:

  • improve community attitudes towards older people and ageing
  • facilitate community participation and activity by older people, including those from Indigenous and culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
  • enhance community connections and inter-generational relationships

In 2017, Queensland Seniors Week celebrates A Queensland for All Ages and will be held from Friday, 18 August to Sunday 27 August.
