Seniors Festival 2018


It’s time to celebrate our seniors and to do this, seniors events take place across Benalla Rural City.

A free concert by The Beatles tribute band Rubber Soul, the month long walking marathon and the Annual Spring Social Dance are just a few events on the calendar.

The Victorian Seniors Festival celebrates Victorians aged 60 and over and the contribution they make to the community. As part of the Festival, public transport is free for Victorian Seniors Card holders between 7 and 14 October.

You can pick up a printed brochure from the Customer Service Centre, the Sir Edward ‘Weary’ Dunlop Learning Centre (Benalla Library) or the Visitor Information Centre.
