The Australian Government website explains that each state and territory has a Seniors Card scheme and some reciprocal arrangements are in place for using your card in other states.
It is a free card providing transport concessions and participating business discounts on a range of goods and services.
To be eligible you must be a resident of the state, 60 years of age or over, and not working more than a set numbers of hours each week in paid employment.
While it's no secret that a Seniors Card can get you discounts on a wide range of goods and services, including concessions on public transport, there may be some Seniors Card benefits you don't know about and many are specific to where you live.
