Am I eligible?

Am I Eligible for a Seniors CardA Seniors Card is available to Australians aged 60 and over who are not working full time. The cards are issued free by each State and Territory government and enable holders to get a wide range of discounts on public and commercial activities.

Eligibility criteria
and concessions available vary so contact your State/Territory Seniors Card office for details. Also, contact the local Seniors Card office to order a new card to replace one lost or damaged.

Although Seniors Cards are issued by States/Territories, businesses (including tours, attractions and accommodation) in one state will usually recognise cards from another. Shops frequently display a 'Seniors Card Welcome' sticker.

Generally Seniors Cards will not attract concessions on interstate public facilities but there are exceptions. See travel concessions below. There is a web site which has general information on seniors cards and links to State/Territory Seniors Card Offices
