Gold Coast birthday celebrations

Gold Coast birthday celebrations in July 2019 bought back many wonderful memories for me. Thursday 4th was the 38th birthday for Melbas on the park, & Sunday 7th was mine.

On the left above is old friend Lloyd Ross who without a doubt has spent more money in Melbas than anyone else by a country mile. In the middle is the general manager Dave Allen the son of the legendary Melbas founder Paul Allen.

For a look at some of the great Melbas memories just follow THIS LINK.

I recall my first visit to this iconic restaurant/nightclub was January 1st 1982. This was the start of an amazing year, just check out THIS LINK.

July 7 another birthday.
