What we’re about

Over 50's Western Sydney Funstars

Our group is a Social Activities Group that is open to all people. Our events are generally aimed at people aged 50+ and we welcome singles and couples of all ages who want to attend a variety of events and activities. We aim to provide people who attend our events and activities with a safe and welcoming environment in which to meet people with similar interests.

We focus on events / activities mainly in The Hills, Hawkesbury, Parramatta, Penrith & Blue Mountains and into the City of Sydney, and we do travel to other areas for other events and activities.

We enjoy meeting new people, making new friends, eating out, movies, picnics, live music, theatre, concerts, dancing & dance lessons, travel - overseas & local, walks & so much more. \

If you have something you would like to do, we welcome your suggestions & encourage all members to host events. Speak to one of the Event Organisers for help.


PLEASE NOTE:  We have a $5 joining fee, payable once we review and approve your request to join our group & an annual $5 membership fee each year after that.

Please Note:

We ask that you ONLY RSVP to an event if you genuinely intend to go to that event. Please don't put your name down because it looks interesting, and you may or may not go. We understand that unexpected situations can occur, but we have noticed that some members put their name down to some of our events on a regular basis and and then pull out at the last moment. Other members have missed out on attending events in the past because of this. Members who continually RSVP and then pull out will be considered as being disrespectful towards the members of the group and will be removed from the group. Please refer to acceptable behaviours listed below.

First preference will always be given to financial members of the group.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. We hope to continue to post a variety of events that are interesting and safe for people to attend.
