50 Seniors 50 Stories

This publication was produced to mark COTA NT’s 50th year of service to NT Seniors and offers an insight into NT seniors’ lives; their histories, their thoughts and how they enjoy the lifestyle of the Northern Territory. 

“I found reading the stories enthralling…we have many more stories to share – so we might even produce a second edition. For those of us who call the Territory home – and will continue to do so – we can relate to these stories, which explain why so many seniors want to call the Territory home too…To have a future we must acknowledge the past, and this small but important publication does just that.” Sue Shearer, CEO COTA NT (December 2019)
