Positive ageing

The City of Fremantle offers many opportunities to have fun, stay fit and meet new people.

Seniors Week 2018 will run from Sunday 11 to Saturday 17 November 2018

This is a time to celebrate the valuable contribution seniors make to our community. The City of Fremantle’s program of events provide a wonderful opportunity for the over 55s community to come together and make new friends, enjoy live music, dance or meet talented musicians and an Aboriginal-led choir. If you have a loved one with dementia then join us at Bistro 21 for coffee and cake.

Each event will show how we, as a community, can build on making the City the most positive place it can be for our seniors.  Find out more about Seniors Week
All events are free, no bookings or tickets necessary.  If you have access requirements, please contact us.
