Supporting our Seniors

The Fraser Coast is a wonderful retirement hotspot and attracts those seeking a slower pace of life where they can connect with their community and enjoy all our region has to offer. With relatively flat land and affordable housing a lot of the Fraser Coast is easily accessed via cycle ways, paths and well maintained roadways.

The Fraser Coast has an abundance of seniors support services, facilities and groups to keep you healthy, active and connected.
