What we're about

Let's get together for affordable activities for anyone over 50 in the southern end of the Gold Coast, Australia. This includes anywhere from Tallebudgera down to venues in northern NSW.

BBQs, dining out, house-parties, seeing a show, sharing a drink, listening and dancing to live music, movies, cruises, day trips or just meeting for coffee.

This group was started to bring people together and to make new friends. It is hoped that the group share interests in many areas and members form friendships. If you're new to the area come along join us. It is always good to expand your circle of friends.

We love meeting new faces and look forward to seeing your current face on your submitted photograph. A RECENT PHOTO (Full face, Passport Style) of yourself is required to join. If your submitted photograph is not suitable your application may be declined. You may apply again with as suitable full face photograph.

Please bring along a sense of humour and a positive attitude to life.

Our members are currently mostly single, however, our Meetup group is not set up as a dating site. Couples may join this group, however, they must join as individuals as the site recognises each membership as one person.

Members either male or female should not send unsolicited requests to other members via the site. If you meet a member whom you would like to get to know better, then just speak to them nicely and ask if they might like to spend some time together.

After joining please let us know what you're interested in by posting ideas and comments and discussions. Your ideas, input, and feedback are important in the planning of group activities, so please participate.

If there's something you wish to go to, please suggest it as an activity. Maybe you will get some company and have fun with others from our group. Alternatively, contact me through the site and let me know what you would like to do. I can then schedule your suggestion as an activity. If you would like to join the organising team then please advise me and I can add you to the team.

Thanks so much for joining, we are looking forward to meeting you all.

A $2.00 administration fee is payable at all meet-up outings to help cover cost to run this group.

Please post photographs from our outings and write reviews, however, do not post photographs of members if you are told that they prefer not to be photographed.

Important: If you RSVP yes to a Meetup and you have 3 no-shows you will be removed from our group. It's only fair as the organiser is constantly look for members to turn up at a venue if they have replied yes.

If you have a change of plans please just rsvp NO. No explanations or excuse is necessary, but it is important to at least show us the courtesy of saying No, then we won't be worrying about you being late etc. In particular, if there is a waitlist for that event, others will get the chance to go.

Remember we are about meeting socially, good conversation, fun, laughter and shared interests and the making of new friends. Look forward to meeting you all.

We also have a private Facebook site. Only members of the Southern Gold Coast Over 50s are eligible to join. This is another option for members to interact with each other. The Facebook site is titled "Southern Gold Coast Over 50s". Beth looks after our Facebook site.
