About Us

Canberra Seniors Centre contributes significantly to healthy ageing by providing a friendly social environment and through the conduct of a range of activities.

Canberra Seniors Centre was opened in 1965, the first facility for older people in the Canberra area. It is located on Community Facilities land in Watson Street, Turner.

It is close to the city in a relatively quiet street with parking and parklands opposite.
