​Seniors Week will run from 29 October to 5 November 2017 and is an opportunity for West Australians of all ages to join together and celebrate the valuable contributions of older people.

Last year, the week featured hundreds of events run by local governments and community organisations across the State. Among the events on offer were 93 activities that received funding from the Department of Local Government and Communities (DLGC) and Lotterywest. More than $80,000 was provided to organisations to help celebrate WA Seniors Week 2016.

Starting the week was the WA Seniors Awards ceremony on Sunday 6 November. The awards provide an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the invaluable contributions made by seniors and by those organisations and local governments that support seniors. The finalists included 15 exceptional individuals, as well as local governments and community organisations. View the finalists and winners of the 2016 WA Seniors Awards.

On Wednesday 9 November, the annual Have a Go Day was presented by the Seniors Recreation Council of WA.  It was held at Burswood Park, with an estimated 15,000 visitors attending the popular all-day event. WA Seniors Card Centre staff were on hand to provide information and advice to visitors.

The Seniors Week CAT trails provided a ticket to fun and adventure across the Perth CBD and Fremantle. Developed especially for Seniors Week, the CAT trails are four free self-guided bus tours based around the Perth and Fremantle Red and Blue CAT bus routes. Maps of the trails are below.
