2013 - a great success!

The 31st Victorian Seniors Festival was held in October.

More than 1,600 free and low cost events and activities were staged for the Festival. Over 140,000 older Victorians and their friends and families took part.

Once again week-long free public transport in Melbourne and regional Victoria was provided for Victorian Seniors Card holders.

The Festival’s major partners are Victoria’s 79 local councils. Every council ran Festival events, ensuring the Festival had a unique statewide reach. 

We thank our 2013 Festival sponsors and community partners for their generous contributions, particularly our Premier Partners: the Australian Seniors Insurance Agency, the City of Melbourne, Lifeview Residential Care and RDNS (Royal District Nursing Service).
