2021 Seniors Card Directory. NSW Government.

The latest Seniors Card Directory has been published, offering great discounts for Seniors Card holders from thousands of businesses across the state.

There are editions available for each region, including Northern NSW, to help seniors plan purchases and adventures in the year ahead.

Member for Tweed Geoff Provest said, ‘The Directory is full of savings, discounts and ideas which encourage active lifestyles as seniors travel and engage with our community.

‘We know older people have spent months at home to protect their physical health during the COVID-19 pandemic and now they can unlock the purchasing power of their Seniors Card to plan an exciting 2021.’

Book and online versions available

The directories are now available at Service NSW Centres, public libraries, local councils and Australia Post outlets across the state, as well as online.

NSW Acting Minister for Seniors Geoff Lee said the five new directories cover Sydney and Surrounds, Central Coast and Hunter, Northern NSW, Southern NSW, and Western NSW.

‘As the NSW population continues to age we are committed to keeping seniors active and engaged in their communities no matter where they live,’ said Mr Lee.

‘The Seniors Card program is one way the NSW Government shows gratitude for the invaluable contribution older people give to our community through volunteering, sharing knowledge and leadership.’
