City of Darwin works in partnership with other organisations and groups to coordinate and promote resources and events that support seniors living in Darwin. The peak body for seniors in Darwin is the Council of the Ageing Northern Territory (COTA NT) information on services and programs are available at cotant.org.au where you can make connections.
Every year in August, Seniors Month is celebrated in the Northern Territory to celebrate older people and their continuing contributions to our community. All City of Darwin run events are free of charge for NT seniors cardholders.
Bookings are essential and can be made for City of Darwin events through codseniors.eventbrite.com call 8930 0409.
Our libraries offer a range of services and programs for seniors. Come in and read or borrow books, magazines, large print books, spoken word books and more. Looking to get online? We provide free access to the web, and you can hire a computer or smart device while you're at the library.
If you require some assistance in using a computer or smart device (i.e. a smart phone or tablet), we're happy to help. Also on offer are our Book Clubs, Knit 'n' Knatter, and a number of other programs and classes.
Our Healthy Darwin program is all about living a healthy lifestyle. The program is packed with low-cost activities, including activities developed especially for seniors, and is a great chance to learn new skills, develop friendships, and connect with others in the community.
