Bayside Seniors Festival 2024

Bayside Council is thrilled to be part of the 2024 NSW Seniors Festival that celebrates the role and contributions of seniors to our local communities.

The NSW Seniors Festival runs from 11 – 24 March celebrates the role and contributions of older adults to our local communities.

Bayside Council is hosting two major events for seniors as part of the 2024 NSW Seniors Festival – Walking Football and a Seniors Sing-A-Long.

In keeping with the NSW Seniors Festival 2024 theme, Reach Beyond, Bayside is introducing a new sporting activity – Walking Football at the Hensley Athletic Field on Saturday 23 March.

Walking Football is a more accessible version of football that involves passing the ball while walking, with a range of mental, physical, and social benefits.

The Seniors Sing-A-Long, in the Botany Town Hall on Wednesday 20 March, showcases the talents of two local choirs – the Sing Your Heart Out and Lakes Singers Choirs led by Christina Mimmocchi.

Other opportunities for seniors to get active include free entry to our two Aquatic Centres, with Botany Aquatic Centre also offering free aqua aerobic classes. You could also try your hand at Pickleball, a low-impact racquet sport, at the Arncliffe Youth Centre.

Keen gardeners can visit the Bayside Garden Centre for a 30% discount on the retail price of all plants in stock from Monday 18th – Sunday 24th March.

Bayside Libraries are hosting several knitting and craft groups, a Chess Club to improve your skill level, and a free screening of Baxter and Me at the Bayside Film Club in Rockdale Library.

The full program of free events for seniors to enjoy is available on Council’s website. While events are free it is advisable to register.
