Use your Seniors Card to get discounts at cafes
The Seniors Card is quite handy for several things in Perth and indeed around Australia. To be eligible for the WA Seniors Card program, you need to be aged 62 years or above, be a permanent resident of Western Australia, and work less than 25 hours per week, averaged over a 12 month period.
The main thing you can use this card for is, of course, FREE transport throughout Western Australia as long as you do not travel during peak hours. As you need to have stopped working full time to receive this card, this is possibly not a problem. After retiring, why go out before 9.30 am!
This is a list of some of the cafes and restaurants who give those with a Seniors Card a discount. It is generally a 10% discount in these establishments. If you feel you are eligible for the Seniors Card and do not have it yet, you can find out more about obtaining the Seniors Card here.
Canning River Cafe is in the Canning River Regional Park in Wilson.
In addition to the 10% discount, they offer a $2 small coffee or $5 small coffee and muffin on Wednesdays.
Where: Corner Kent Street & Queens Park Road, Wilson
