Senior Hangouts is seven-days-a-week free online tuition consisting of up to six half-hour presentations per day. A tutor, or Hangout “buddy”, meets up to six registered participants on an advertised topic at the scheduled date and time, and all parties can see and hear each other.

Senior Hangouts covers a myriad of technology-related subjects. The presenter explains the topic by sharing his or her screen, often displaying a Powerpoint presentation. It is explained live, with participants able to interject and ask questions.


As a result of our AGM Meeting we have a committee of dedicated volunteers for the year – many thanks to them all.

Sometimes during the roadworks to the SeniorNet car park will be closed off. We will try to keep you informed but if this is the case there are other parking options.

  • You can park in the overflow car park on Pioneer Park – don’t be put off by the workers’ huts and equipment as you have a right to use this car park
  • Or you can park in the Warehouse/Countdown car park.
