Regional NT Seniors Expos

Regional NT Seniors Expos

In this section: Alice Springs| Coomalie | Katherine

Following the success of our major Seniors Expo held in Darwin and Palmerston in 2015, COTA NT staff and volunteers in other regions of the Territory work to create wonderful information days using the same (winning) formula: community + connections + conversations  + celebration = EXPO.

All delivered by staff, volunteers, sponsors and supporters/exhibitors in a spirit of community, openness, teamwork and advocacy.

Alice Springs Seniors Expos

Seniors Expos in Alice Springs are incorporated into Seniors Month activities. In 2019 and 2020, they were smaller events ‘Health and Wellness Days’ which have developed into Expo-style events. The 2022 Expo was a combined indoor event with the Alice Springs Town Council, continuing a partnership starting in 2020.
