Cumberland Seniors Festival

With more than 70 events planned from 12 to 23 February 2020 across the Cumberland area. There is no shortage of things to do.

Life is for living well

More than 15% of the Cumberland population is over the age of 60. And it's set to grow over the next decade.

Seniors make an enormous contribution to our community, so Cumberland City Council is pleased to offer a wide range of programs that enable their continued participation and activity.

The events advertised on this website are run by both Council and local organisations. Feel free to join us for as many events as you wish.
