What do over 40’s like to do in and around Canberra

By TSI - 12 November 2013 47

What do over 40 year old’s do in Canberra for entertainment, ie, where do they go dancing, listen to some great music, some country pubs perhaps?  What else is there to do here or surrounding areas that’s fun and alive?

Where do they go for fun and to meet people?

Any place out of the ordinary or anything special people like to do? Recommendations?

What’s Your opinion?

There is a lively divorced (and soon to be divorced ) crowd around Kingston and Manuka every weekend. Plenty of younger people go out in the area too but the scene is just as lively while a lot less rowdy than Civic so it appeals to 20 year olds of all ages.

Surely you mean 40 year olds of all ages?

there are many bowls clubs in the act. a few golf clubs too. and a croquet club next to the hyatt, but i think that’s over sixty.

the libraries are bonza meeting places, too. oldies still like ‘books’ and not those new fangled things kids today gad about with. doctors surgery waiting rooms are ace for meeting the elderly, too. and floriade, though i think they moved that to another town that needed a spruce up. catch a bus – whee! or spend the kid’s inheritance at sage (having picked up at the surgery of course)…

Great question. Johnboy is of course well placed to answer … ; )

I’d guess that Johnboy turns 40 next year.

And the year after … and the year after that!

Don’t go over 40 in the town centres, it get’s too exciting.

There’s a great rock and roll band playing at the Lake George pub in Bungendore on Friday night.

My mother has joined an over 50’s group on MeetUp!

Every week she’s doing something new with them. Dinners, lunches, picnics plus going to events etc.

Her social life is better than mine 🙁

If you weren’t already aware, we put up a guide to what’s happening in Canberra over the weekend ever Thursday.

Here they are.

You may find some ideas there.

They curl up into little balls in their suburban homes and slowly die … or is that just me 🙂
