Seniors from across the region are invited to attend the biggest Sensational Seniors Expo since its inception in 2013, with 85 exhibitors and a bumper line-up of live entertainment on show all under one roof.

The free expo will be held at Panthers Port Macquarie (Settlement City) between 9am to 2pm on Monday 18 February, and is a great opportunity for retirees, or those about to retire, to access information on health and aged care services, travel opportunities, and leisure and lifestyle activities available locally.

“Once again we have had huge interest from local businesses and community groups wanting to get involved, which means lots of new exhibitors will be showcasing their products and services this year,” said Group Manager Lucilla Marshall.

Performances by the U3A Multicultural Dancers, Zumba Gold with Krista and the St Agnes Goldies, card demonstrations by the Bridge Club and food tastings by Catholic CCA and Omnicare are sure to keep seniors entertained throughout the day.

Seniors can learn more about everything from sight-seeing tours to Italy, local fly fishing and quilting clubs, new BBQ’s, receive free blood pressure and hearing tests and have the chance to take home plenty of free goodies and giveaways.

The Port Macquarie-Hastings Sensational Seniors Expo is part of the NSW Seniors Festival, the largest celebration for people over 60 in the southern hemisphere, running from 13 – 24 February. It is an opportunity for older adults to try new things, meet new people and share their stories, skills and experiences.

“We have lots of new exhibitors and more live entertainment than ever before, we encourage anyone looking to make the most out of their retirement to come along to this year’s free expo, learn more about what’s on offer for local seniors and join in the fun!,” said Ms Marshall.
