Now in its 59th year, the NSW Seniors Festival (formerly NSW Seniors Week) is the largest festival for seniors in the Southern Hemisphere, with over 300,000 people taking part in more than 1,000 free and discounted events. 

The 2016 NSW Seniors Festival theme is Grow Young and is about celebrating seniors for their energy, experience and unique ability to know who they are, and what makes them happy. No matter what your age, it’s never too late to grow – to learn, to laugh and to be inspired. 

2016 Senior Australian of the Year, Professor Gordian Fulde has been named as one of the 2016 ambassadors for the Seniors Festival. 

Minister for Ageing John Ajaka said the NSW Seniors Festival will be brought to life by the 2016 NSW Seniors Festival ambassadors, who will share their stories and experiences. 

“Each of the ambassadors has a unique story to tell and their individual experiences will help create positive perceptions, while encouraging seniors to engage with their community and live life to the fullest,” Mr Ajaka said. 

Gordian's enthusiam and passion for his work and advocacy against alcohol abuse is by no means slowing down and he will be doing a talk with the Human Rights Commission in Sydney on 12 April. For more information visit here
