Australia’s premier outdoor adventure and recreational show, the National 4×4 Outdoors Show, Fishing & Boating Expo, is just around the corner and will be held once again at the Brisbane Showgrounds, this year from April 5-7. In time for the Easter break, this year’s Show will feature thousands of boating, 4×4, fishing, camping and outdoors products from the industry’s leading retailers including a host of amazing deals and bargains for show-goers.
Event director Paul Mathers said for almost 30 years the National 4×4 Outdoors Show, Fishing & Boating Expo has been Queensland’s biggest and most comprehensive outdoor lifestyle show. “Our event was attended by nearly 30,000 like-minded enthusiasts and families last year, and with some exciting new faces and features, we expect even bigger crowds for our 2019 Show,” he said.
“Fun is definitely the essence of this event; and it’s always so gratifying to see so much enthusiastic participation in all the different aspects of the show.”
An annual highlight of the National 4×4 Outdoors Show, Fishing & Boating Expo has always been the long roll call of special guests and visiting industry experts ready to share their expertise, experiences and entertaining stories with show visitors.
This year outdoor experts such as Jase Andrews and Simon Anderson from All 4 Adventure, Spida & Sheree Everitt (Great Australian Doorstep), Shaun and Graham (4WD Action), local legend Paul Burt (Channel 7), Pat Callinan (Pat Callinan’s 4×4 Adventures) and Alicia and Jamie (The Offroad Adventure Show) will be joined be some fresh faces including David Hodge, the Barefoot Fisherman, eccentric Australian wildlife adventurer Andrew Ucles, Scott Hillier from Creek to Coast and Nick the Bush Cook, all of whom will be on site across the weekend to share a yarn, laugh and pose for a selfie!
The Action Arena is the centrepiece of entertainment at the National 4×4 Outdoors Show, Fishing & Boating Expo and in 2019 will offer spectators hours of high-adrenalin thrills with plenty of four-wheeled tricks and stunts. And for those wishing to get behind the wheel, the 4×4 Proving Ground is perfect for putting the latest 4WDs on the market through their paces on specifically designed tracks mirroring off-road conditions.
The Boating Industry Association is back for 2019, promoting and supporting all things aquatic, while the Berkley Supertank returns, tutoring show-goers on a variety of angling skills and the effectiveness of different fishing equipment, all in the giant fish-stocked transparent tank.
