Towong Shire


The contributions our senior residents make to our communities is phenomenal. Over a third of Towong Shire's population is made up of people aged over 55 years; and the experience they generously offer to the community is very much appreciated. Whether volunteering in the community, caring for a loved one, or passing down our local history to the next generation, our seniors are an essential part of the Towong Shire community. 

In October each year, Council is honored to host an event especially for local seniors as part of the Victorian Seniors Festival. Details of all events and activities held as part of the Victorian Seniors Festival are available here.

Do you know an outstanding senior in our community? Acknowledge their value by nominating them for a local Australia Day Community Award, or even a Victorian Senior of the Year Award.
