Seniors Expo

Come along to the Expo on Thursday 21 March at Exhibition Park and say hello to us. We’re on Stall 39 near the stage.

The Expo brings together more than 120 exhibitors to provide information on aged care, retirement, finance, legal, home help and modifications, health and leisure, travel, community and government services, special interest and social groups. The Expo is an excellent venue for seniors to gather in numbers, find information and be entertained.
