THE National 4×4 Outdoors Show, Fishing & Boating Expo has been Brisbane’s leading event for outdoor enthusiasts for over two decades and is back in 2018, bigger and better than ever before.
Held from March 16-18 at the Brisbane Showgrounds, the event will feature thousands of the most exciting 4×4, fishing, boating and outdoor products from Australia’s industry leaders, as well as a great range of demonstrations and access to some of the country’s best-known experts.
The massive 2018 event is also set to be bolstered by an exciting new partnership with the Boating Industry Association. The collaboration will see the BIA and its members take over the John Reid Pavilion with a marine display reminiscent of the old Tinnie and Tackle Show. The BIA was last involved in the show in 2014, and demand for exposure in the Brisbane area has led to a new partnership for this year’s event.
With Queensland laying claim to more registered boats (256,000) and boat licences (694,000) than any other state in Australia, the partnership makes perfect sense. The Waeco CFX Outback Stage presented by Dometic will also return this year, offering the best and brightest of Australia’s off-roading television personalities.
Get up close and personal with stars such as Rick from the Offroad Adventure Show, Roothy, Jase Andrews and Simon Anderson (All 4 Adventure), Spida and Sheree Everitt (Great Australian Doorstep), Shaun and Graham (4WD Action) and Pat Callinan from Pat Callinan’s 4×4 Adventures.
For the off-roading enthusiast, the Eagers Holden proving ground is a must-see, offering visitors the chance to put the latest Holden Colorado through its paces and test their own skills behind the wheel of a 4WD on a variety of surfaces.
Following its successful debut at the National 4×4 Outdoors Show, Fishing & Boating Expo in 2017, Base Camp will also return, with its interactive campsite simulation tripled in size. Base Camp provides families with the chance to truly experience all the great Australian outdoors has to offer, from traditional summer sporting activities to lazing around enjoying live music and bush tucker.
You can also hone your culinary skills by learning from those in the know, including Paul Burt and Spida Everitt on the Catch and Cook stage at Base Camp.
The All4FMX ATV show and Cam White Pro BMX Team will be testing limits across the weekend in a series of death-defying performances that cannot be missed. With thousands of bargains and brands on sale, industry experts on hand for the best advice and inspiration for all your outdoor adventures, the 2018 National 4×4 Outdoors Show, Fishing & Boating Expo truly has something for every enthusiast.
