Fraser Coast Sports Expo

31 January, 2019

If you want to know what sports or social activities are available on the Fraser Coast, then head along to one, or both, of the sport and recreation expos in February.

The Maryborough and District All Sports Showcase will be held on Saturday, February 9, from 9.30am to 12.30 at the Maryborough High School in Kent Street.

The following day on Sunday, February 10, the Fraser Coast Sports Expo will be held at the Hervey Bay PCYC from 9am to noon.

Cr Daniel Sanderson said the Expos bring together a range of recreational, social and leisure groups covering all ages.

“The expos are a fantastic opportunity for residents of all ages to check out the many sports and clubs on the Fraser Coast so they can decide which they, or their children, would like to join,” he said.

“At the Hervey Bay expo there will be a number of demonstrations covering dance, roller derby and parkour.

“You will be able to have a free health check courtesy of the Australia Medical Association Queensland Branch, or you can take the opportunity to test your skills in the inflatable cricket nets with Cricket Queensland or on the Brisbane Roar Football Club Rapid Fire Inflatable football field.

“The Council is keen to ensure we have a safe, active and healthy community, and we are proud to support and promote sports and recreation opportunities that are available on the Fraser Coast.”

Entry to the Hervey Bay expo is free and everyone attending can go into a draw for a $1,000 voucher from Sports First with random draws for meals at the Hervey Bay RSL made during the event.

Organisations which would like to have a stall at the expo can contact Council’s Sport and Recreation Officer on 1300 79 49 29.

A list of the clubs and groups exhibiting and the times of the demonstrations will be posted on the Council’s website closer to the date.
