Activities for older adults

Darebin has many groups, clubs, community centers and activities. We can help connect you with the ones that meet your needs, interests and culture.

To help you stay active in a way that interests you, we have put together the Older and Active in Darebin Directory. In this handy guide, you will find over 200 services, groups and programs that welcome older people.
