Sorrento Savvys

The Sorrento Savvys is a firm favourite with our over 50's Centre members. A jam-packed social calendar of events and fun experiences will keep you happily on the go.  

There are weekly walks, bush hikes, lunches, monthly drinks, dinners in local restaurants and even picnics.

The Savvys visit local attractions, like Heronswood, the McClelland Sculpture Park and Gallery, regional galleries, Beleura House and more.

A quarterly program designed by the members will keep you busy updating your calendar so you don’t miss out on any of the upcoming events.

Individual Savvys can take responsibility for planned events and everyone is encouraged to bring new ideas to the group. It’s a sharing and caring environment.

If you want to become a Sorrento Savvy, call Reception on 5984 3360. The cost is just $11 per

As a Savvy Member, you’ll receive a quarterly e-newsletter to advise you about upcoming activities.

Chatty Cafe Scheme

A "Have a Chat" table is where customers can sit if they are happy to chat with other customers.

Who we are?

Chatty Cafe aims to help people of all ages and  backgrounds to stay socially connected to their community by chatting. 

To enable this we want community and commercial hospitality venues across Australia to designate a "Have a Chat" table which is where people can sit if they are happy to talk to others.

The more places that get involved, the more it will become the norm to walk into a cafe, restaurant, pub, library, club, community centre, neighbourhood house, mall etc. and chose to sit at a "Have a Chat" table.

Who is it for ?

"Have a Chat" tables welcome everyone.

Who can join in? Anyone.... people on their own, in a couple, with a friend,
carers, parents with babies and kids, grandparents, people with disabilities and
of all ages and choices including  the people that may be socially isolated or
 Everyone is Welcome!
