Mr ROBERT (Fadden) (13:43): First of all, I welcome members of Livingstone Christian College to parliament today with Principal Mark Laraghy, Dean Amanda and the four leaders from year 10. Likewise, I'm delighted to inform the House that the Northern Gold Coast Seniors Expo is once again on at the Gold Coast. It will be held on Wednesday, 18 July at the Runaway Bay Indoor Sports Stadium from 9 am to 1 pm. We get almost 3,000 people aged over 65 years. It's going to be a cracker of an event. Over 100 exhibitors who offer seniors lifestyle, wellness and financial services take a stall every year, in addition to the many community groups. The event of course provides our senior Australians with free morning tea, musical concerts, dances and other entertainment, both inside and outside the sport centre, for the duration of the event. It will be a carnival-type atmosphere. Once again, the MC is Nine Gold Coast News' Bruce Paige. Every year, great prizes are on offer for those who attend. The prizes last year included two return economy tickets with Virgin Australia to anywhere on their domestic network, as an example. The 2018 expo is free for seniors. In addition to being a fun and free day out, it includes enormous amount of resources from various government agencies, community groups and businesses. I welcome all senior Australians on the Gold Coast to what will be an outstanding seniors event.
