You no longer need to pre-register – with 2 zones instead of 6 it will be a first come, first hunt basis with 60 hunters moved through every 10 minutes. Doors open at 2.30pm and close at 5pm.

Deck Solutions Ormeau (Brisbane to Gold Coast)

deck-solutions-emailThanks to the beautiful weather year round in South East Queensland, outdoor spaces get a real workout. It doesn’t take too long for the harsh sun to fade and wear deck and handrail timbers.

At Deck Solutions we specialise in rejuvenation, maintenance and repair as well as extensions and brand new deck creations. Most of our clients dread the task of sanding, cleaning and restaining their deck but hate the tired, aged wood appearance. We have package solutions to make it a simple and painless process. From now until the end of May 2015 we are offering a 10% discount when “My Ormeau” is mentioned.

Tight on space indoors? You may be able to create an entirely new living space by introducing a covered deck area that extend from your current living zones. We have had a spike in requests from home based businesses recently as we help them to create an escape from their indoor “work environment”. Once the decking and patio is installed clients have finished them off with alfresco dining settings, plush and comfortable outdoor lounge suites, fire pits, feature walls and lighting features. “The Block” TV series has inspired many to think outside of the square and we love a challenge. We can help you design, plan and make the very most of your home lifestyle.

Why use us? We return calls promptly, turn up when we say we will and get the job done right the first time (plus there is a quality guarantee for added peace of mind). Attention to detail is vital and our costs are reasonable ensuring you get what you pay for.

If you would like to arrange an obligation free quote please contact Leigh Beecroft on 0450 929 591.

The Great Easter Egg Hunt Ormeau 2015 – LJ Hooker Ormeau

It’s that time of year again!

Saturday 4 April 2015
3.30pm – 6.30pm
Brien Harris Oval, Ormeau
(Orange Mountain Road and Peachey Road Ormeau)

Register online now – click here

A great afternoon event for the whole family. Hope to see you there! We are following the same format as last year which requires all egg hunters to register prior to participation.

You can register online or on the day. First in best dressed and when the time slots are full we cannot register any other hunters. The 6pm hunt timeslot is reserved for late comers and again – once all positions are filled we cannot allow more hunters into the hunt zones. Hunt zones are age based for safety reasons.

IMPORTANT: You MUST be registered and have collected your hunt ticket from the pre-registration and registration booths at least 30 MINUTES prior to your selected timeslot. This will give you adequet time to ensure you are signed in and know where you are going when your hunt is called to the gates. For example if you are hunting at 5pm please ensure you arrive at 4.30pm and sign in right away.

Photo Opportunities

Get your photo taken with the Easter Bunny, Hooker Bear and Highway Mascots. Some of our Halloween mascots may also make a special appearance (Minion, Spongebob, Olaf, Kung Fu Panda, Ninja Turtles and Scooby Doo). All LJ Hooker photos will be loaded onto My Ormeau within 12 hours and we will publish all other supplied photos as soon as we receive them.

Bring your friends and family – Happy Easter!
