Seniors week in the Douglas Shire will look a little different this year as we adapt to the changing conditions Queensland. For the first time in its 60-year history, Queensland’s annual celebration of seniors is going virtual.

To do this we have made the decision to maintain the week format, celebrating from Saturday 15 August – Sunday 23 August 2020.

This year more than ever people need something to celebrate, in the safest way possible.

As Covid-19 regulations have seen many older people in self-isolation, never has it been more important to ensure people remain connected and don’t become segregated.

To do so, Queensland Seniors Week is thinking outside the box, and has launched a calendar of virtual events.

To help seniors make the most of the virtual experiences on offer a guide as been prepared to make it easy to access a range of activities.
