At the Cairns and District Senior Citizens Association we have a wide variety of activities to choose from, specifically created and designed to benefit our members.

Our activities are centered around creating engagement for your physical, mental and emotional well-being, bringing people together to form stronger social connections and giving you a positive focus.
