I'm currently 58 and just bought my first oboe. There's no reason not to try if you want to play.
A lot depends on your goals. If you plan on playing in the local community orchestra, you'll want a better oboe than if you just want to sit on a hilltop and annoy the wildlife. Either way, if you can afford a decent oboe at the start, I'd advise getting a teacher right away and getting a strong start toward your goals.
A good teacher can also help you find a good oboe that will take care of you for years, so I'd get the teacher first.
