Seniors

Our lifestyle is perfect for seniors. There are many choices when it comes to accommodation, socialising, and support services.

Australia Day Awards

Northern Grampians Shire Council likes to celebrate the achievements of seniors in the shire annually at the Stawell and St Arnaud Australia Day awards ceremony. If you know an outstanding Senior in our community who should be recognised for their achievements, please contact Rosanne Baird on Ph: 03 5358 8700.

Victorian Senior of the Year Awards

Annually Northern Grampians Shire Council invites seniors who have made or are making a valuable contribution to the community in a voluntary capacity to attend the Victorian of the Year Awards Government House reception. This is usually the first event to kick off Seniors Week in Victoria.
