In conjunction with local community groups and organisations Ararat Rural City Council will host a month full of activities and events that celebrates older residents and our communities, as part of the Victorian Seniors Festival each October.

Council is continually building on the festival program to include plenty of opportunities for local and visiting seniors to get out and about. The 2016 festival featured over 60 special events and activities hosted across the municipality.

The Ararat & Grampians Visitor Information Centre’s extremely popular tours are a regular feature which includes winery tours, homestead tours, historical tours, health and wellbeing workshops and arts workshop. Details of these tours will be available each August from the Information Centre on 1800 657 158.

The Victorian Seniors Festival is a state-wide Victorian Government initiative. For more information about the Victorian Seniors Festival visit
