AUSTRALIA’S greatest 4×4 and fishing celebrities are coming together in a force of star power for Queensland’s ultimate outdoor lifestyle expo.
Taking over 45,000sq m of the Brisbane Showgrounds this year, the National 4×4 Outdoors Show, Fishing & Boating Expo will host a star line-up from March 27-29. With a huge range of 4×4 accessories on offer, as well as the latest fishing tech, camping gear, kayaks and everything in between, the massive expo aims to inspire all with the very best of what the outdoor lifestyle has to offer.
A top-notch line-up of celebrity appearances will also raise the bar for outdoor inspiration this year. Leading the charge is Australia’s favourite 4×4 celebrity John ‘Roothy’ Rooth, who is back with a unique ‘Up Close and Personal’ Q&A experience at this year’s expo. A man who needs little introduction, the off-road legend has been exploring Australia for over 15 years and keeping audiences entertained with his renowned stories and lessons in bush adventures.
The prominent outdoor lifestyle personality returns to the National 4×4 Outdoors Show launching Dustem Up Overlanding Adventures, a new project to unlock some of Australia’s most unforgettable off-road experiences. Up Close and Personal with Roothy will give show visitors an intimate and engaging special experience with the opportunity to ask questions, take photos and chat with this true Aussie icon on stand JR102 in the John Reid Pavilion.
The exceptional rollcall of special guests continues with modern-day explorer Jase Andrews and his right-hand man Simon Anderson. The stars of Australia’s number one four-wheel-drive and adventure show All 4 Adventure are making an appearance at the March event. Driven by an insatiable curiosity for the undiscovered regions of Australia, these modern-day explorers have become famous for pushing the limits in some of the most remote and hostile places in the country.
Also joining the star powered line-up is Australia’s most trusted four-wheel driver, Pat Callinan. Having driven more tracks and beaches than most, published the country’s leading 4×4 and caravan magazines, and produced Australia’s first national 4×4 television show, Callinan is a natural addition to the National 4×4 Outdoors Show.
Show-goers will also have the opportunity to meet Graham and Shauno from Australian 4WD Action. Focused on making four-wheel-driving accessible for all, the boys are bound to inspire adventure. Best mates Matt Baker and Burkey return to share their passion for our great land, taking to the stage to give insights on where to go to for your next big adventure.
On the Catch and Cook Stage, Aussie legend Peter ‘Spida’ Everitt and his partner in crime Sheree will thrill visitors with their love for the outdoors. Drawing on their experience from popular television show The Great Australian Doorstep, the pair will be whipping up stories and recipes on stage throughout the expo.
Two new faces to the Brisbane expo this year are fishing extraordinaire Sam Hitzke and DIY 4×4 whiz Sam Eyles. With thousands of fishing trips under his belt, as well as having participated in top competitions and developed his own lures and fishing apparel, Sam Hitzke is a one-stop shop for fish-spiration.
Also new to the fold this March is Sam Eyles. The hot shot redefined bush mechanics with an incredible 22-episode series covering his build of one of the country’s toughest DIY 4x4s. Eyles will take to the Outback Stage throughout the weekend to share his adventures and impart his wisdom.
The 2020 National 4×4 Outdoors Show, Fishing & Boating Expo will be staged at the Brisbane Showgrounds from March 27-29.
