Making new friends when you're over 50 can be a daunting task, especially when our circumstances change or we move to a new city.

The Gold Coast can be a lonely place if you don't know anyone, but if you dig beneath the surface, you will find opportunities to make new friends. Facebook is a treasure trove of local activities if you know where to look.

On the southern parts of the GC, try Beaches Social Group for early morning walks, coffee, pickle ball, and a host of other social activities.


For laughs, drinks, and chatty morning walks, try the Gold Coast over 50's social group for Southport and surrounds.


Most GC suburbs have a community group on Facebook, created by some random person who lives in the area. Search for your favourite suburbs in the GROUPS section, and join as many as you like. Start with the Gold Coast Community Board , where you will find all sorts of posts from people all over the GC. And give Gold Coast Community Workshops and Events a try for something a little different.



The GC is a popular spot for retirees of all ages, and National Seniors Australia has a local branch in Broadbeach. They meet at Kurrawa SLSC on the first Wednesday of every month, and host other sit-down events at restaurants around the area. They produce a monthly newsletter with all the details.


And if none of these ideas get you out of the house, there are many other social groups for Ladies Who Lunch... a traditional GC activity where the bubbles and gossip flow with equal abandon. There is something for everyone on the Gold Coast.
