Seniors Week Seniors Week

Every year the Gladstone Region celebrates Seniors Week to recognise the invaluable contribution seniors make to our community.

Seniors Week is celebrated in August each year to encourage residents aged 55 and over to get active, have fun and engage in the community while learning.

Gladstone Regional Council works with regional businesses and organisations to create a program of activities and events. Each activity is designed to encourage new skills and interests and the majority of events are free. 
 
This year the week will be held from August 18 to 26 with the theme, 'Celebrating a Queensland for All Ages'.
