NSW Seniors Festival

In This Section


In 2020 Woollahra Council will stage Find Your Spark!, a festival for seniors in the Woollahra community, that coincides with NSW Seniors Festival, the largest festival for seniors in the Southern Hemisphere. The annual festival promotes inclusive communities and provides an opportunity for seniors to try new things, contribute and remain active and engaged in their local communities.

Find Your Spark! consists of three mornings of free workshops to try something new, learn something different and to meet other community members. Each session runs from 10.00am – 12.00pm with morning tea provided and a chance to explore Woollahra Libraries' Spark Van; a mobile pop up library where you can engage with some of the latest technologies. Transport will be provided in partnership with Holdsworth Community Centre on request.
