Hibiscus Noosa Outlook hosted the annual Health and Wellness Expo as part of its wellness program. The village’s much anticipated event was about promoting the health and happiness of the residents and their friends and families.

This year, the expo featured 17 diverse stalls, including a pharmacy, age care services, hearing specialists, travel experts, Noosa Council representatives, and a delightful assortment of gift vendors.

Some of the day’s highlights were the soothing massages and enticing tarot card readings, which the residents thoroughly enjoyed. As everyone held their coffee cups, the atmosphere buzzed with conversations, laughter and contentment.
