BUNDABERG got a taste of the good life yesterday at the annual Bundy Lifestyle Expo.

Families, couples and singles wandered the many stalls set up at the PCYC, which gave them information on everything from travelling to tuning their car.

Organiser Dion Taylor said he was impressed with the event, now in its third year.

“It's scattered inside and outside of the PCYC, so there are quite a lot of stalls,” he said.

“We've been speaking to a lot of the exhibitors, who are saying they've had a good response.”

Mr Taylor said the expo was created to give smaller businesses and opportunity to showcase themselves.

“We've got PMR, G&T Autos, a handful of builders, finance, travel – everything,” he said.

“We've got quite a few bigger sites this year. G&T are displaying a few cars and PMR have jetskis and that sort of thing outside.”

Mr Taylor said the day had attracted people from every demographic.

“There's something here for everyone so we've had a good response.”
