Seniors

Overview

Senior woman with cup of tea  

Senior residents have a lot to offer the Launceston municipality. Their experience and knowledge, as well as their social contribution, help make our city an even better place to call home or visit.   

The Living as a Senior in Launceston Framework(PDF, 458KB) outlines our commitment to ensuring people can enjoy life in their senior years.  

We have a number of initiatives aimed at informing and involving seniors in the community, including morning tea sessions throughout the year, annual Seniors' Week events and tailored classes at the Launceston Aquatic Centre.
