Over 50s activities.jpg

There are some fantastic learning, leisure and recreational opportunities at our Over 50’s centres located in Salisbury, Parafield Gardens and Para Hills.

It is about finding something that interests and stimulates you. This may take a little bit of trying different things. The great news is that the first time at one of our programs is a free come and have a go. If you like it – then you pay the particular participation fee for that activity; If not…you can try something else. If you need help or advice just ask to speak to one of our staff members.
