Mr BROADBENT (McMillan) (16:35): Rose Lodge is an aged-care facility at Wonthaggi. I was grateful to be asked to visit the opening of their new $6.5 million aged-care facility. Rose Lodge was opened 65 years ago. The new wings of this beautiful facility were named after John Lindsay, Wendy Crellin, and two garden courtyards were named after Graham Young and Barbara Shipp. Their own little op shop at Wonthaggi raised half a million dollars over six years for this facility. Under the strong leadership of Mr Bill Berry, this facility was created—and it is absolutely beautiful—with no federal government help, no state government help and no local government help. It was purely their own ingenuity and energy. Barbara Shipp died only recently. She was my great contact at Rose Lodge. I have to say in this address that her daughters, whom I met on that day, are beautiful, intelligent and very bright. It was absolutely marvellous.
