Yarra Ranges Celebrates Our Over 50’s

This year’s theme is ‘Takin it Easy’. Meet old friends, make new ones, & re-experience the joy of being together, sharing a laugh or event trying something new & enjoying the many amazing things happening in & around the Yarra Ranges.

We all know the importance of keeping our minds & bodies active, so we have put together a raft of activities aimed to inspire & help you find something that you’ll love & continue to enjoy beyond the hype of the festival.

Yarra Range Council thanks all the Over 50’s Festival partners & contributors. They have helped us put together a program packed with interesting, active, educational, & cultural activities for you to enjoy. Why not gather your friends together to help celebrate being an older resident in the Yarra Ranges!
