About Fifty~Plus News
First published in 1991, Fifty-Plus News is a free monthly newspaper for older people in Victoria, Australia. Our newspaper serves an important and growing sector of the community — those who are either approaching retirement or already enjoying life as retirees. Its content covers a broad range of subjects including news and community service information, travel, health and recreation, arts, theatre and other leisure pursuits, together with all-important financial and retirement advice by reputable professionals.
Fifty-Plus News is delivered each month to more than 1250 outlets in Melbourne, Geelong, the Bellarine and Mornington Peninsulas and several country Victorian centres. Distribution outlets are all specifically targeted to service the needs and interests of the over-fifty population: all Coles Supermarkets, most Woolworths Supermarkets, Pharmacies, Retirement Villages, Bowling and other Sporting Clubs, Senior Citizens Clubs, Life Activities Clubs and VIEW Clubs to name a few. Large numbers are also delivered to such public venues as Information Victoria, Council on the Ageing Victoria, Seniors Information Victoria, National Seniors Association, YW and YMCAs, University of the Third Age, public libraries and various organisations conducting superannuation and retirement seminars.
The current CAB audited monthly circulation of Fifty-Plus News is 61,738 copies (audited March 31, 2013).
