Grab a bargain book at Lifeline Bookfest this weekend

There is nothing better than snuggling up and enjoying a good book while the weather is cool and crisp.

If you are on the hunt for a great new read that won’t break the bank, then you need to head along to Lifeline Bookfest at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre this weekend.

Some of the books on sale are priced as low as 50 cents and there is a vast array on offer.


“The Gold Coast Bookfest event always focuses on what’s important to our customers. This winter we have been selective and offer our customers the best of winter books. Customers can find a vast array of health conscious books, children’s books, limited editions, fiction and magazines that suit many different tastes and ages” said Jim Dale, Lifeline Business Manager Gold Coast.

“We are overwhelmed by the response we received last year from the Gold Coast Community, customers who travelled long distances to attend the Gold Coast Bookfest and the visitors from interstates on holidays who attended the Bookfest event and helped to support the Lifeline 24 hour 13 11 14 Crisis Support Line and other UnitingCare Community Services” said Jim.

Visitors will also have the chance to win gift vouchers to spend at the event. Customers who enter the Gold Coast Bookfest online competition will get a chance to win a $50 Bookfest gift voucher (10 gift vouchers to giveaway) before the event and will get a second chance to win 10 $50 Lifeline Shop gift vouchers during the 3 day event.
