To thank you for your lifelong contribution to the community, State and Federal Governments provide senior Australians with a range of discounts and benefits. Make sure you’re not missing out on the savings.
If you’re aged 60 or over, live in New South Wales (NSW) and do less than 20 hours of paid work a week, you’re entitled to a Seniors Card. This card provides a range of discounts and benefits in NSW, but can also be used interstate to receive similar discounts.

The Gold Opal card provides discounts on public transport services across NSW. It is available to Pensioner Concession Card Holders, NSW Seniors, ACT Seniors and NSW War Widows and Widowers.
Seniors living outside NSW or the ACT, but still within Australia, can also apply for a Gold Opal card if you have a valid Seniors Card issued by an Australian State or Territory Government. An interstate Gold Opal card has a 60-day expiry period.
