Social Activities and Events

Our social activities and events provide a great way to socialise and meet new friends and also help to keep you connected to your community.

Men’s Group Outings (BOOMers)

Our BOOMers service is specifically designed for men who enjoy an opportunity to socialise and visit interesting places in the company of other men.

Who is it for?

Older men who are independently mobile (walkers and sticks welcome) and who have some spare time on their hands are welcome to join our outings that are conducted each fortnight on Friday mornings.

Typically three hours in duration, destinations include cafés, parks, galleries, museums, historic houses and other places of interest. Destinations visited in the past include NSW Art Gallery, Sculpture By the Sea, Cockatoo Island, Sydney Cricket ground tour, Radio Museum (Kurrajong), NSW Golf Club House, InterContinental Hotel/old NSW Treasury, Justice & Police Museum, Government House, Vaucluse House, ABC Studios tour, Power House museum, Maritime Museum, Watsons Bay ferry, North Head and Lane Cove National Park.

With friendly drivers and volunteers, men are welcome to join the outings by booking beforehand. No regular commitment is needed. The charge is $10 (unless stated otherwise), which includes venue entry, morning tea and transport.
