Sunshine 60 & Better Group is a community development healthy ageing programme, designed to meet the expressed needs of older people, in local settings. From Caloundra to Gympie, Sunshine 60's focus is to increase people's awareness of healthy lifestyle options, whilst simultaneously reducing the social isolation aspect of growing older.

To improve the health and wellbeing of the young-at-heart on the Sunshine Coast, Sunshine 60 offers a variety of activity classes, at a low cost, in the following three locations - with thanks to the Sunshine Coast Council Health and Wellbeing for Seniors for this information.
