The 2019 show will be jam-packed with products and entertainment for the outdoors crowd, with over 200 leading brands and retailers showcasing their wares. That means literally thousands of products on display including new vehicles, the latest 4×4 gear and aftermarket accessories, camping gear, camper trailers, caravans, boats, fishing gear and more.
And bring the kids along too, because there’ll be no shortage of family-friendly entertainment across the weekend. The Waeco CFX Outback Stage returns by popular demand to host talks from some of the biggest names in the industry. Our own Pat Callinan will be sharing stories and tips from his adventures on the road, along with Jase Andrews from All 4 Adventure, Shaun Whale and Graham Cahill of 4WD Action and Jamie Hazeldine, Alicia Blythe, Michael Borg and Jillaroo Jess from The Offroad Adventure Show. There will be sessions scheduled daily across the three days.
And if all that conversation gets you itching for some action, the VW Amarok Proving Ground provides the opportunity to hone your 4×4 skills. It’s a purpose-built track where punters can jump behind the wheel to test a variety of off-road surfaces including a sand trap, water crossing, compact rock segment and steep incline.
To watch the experts at play head over to the Action Arena, where stunt man Matt Mingay headlines the entertainment with his Hot Wheels Stunt show, this time bringing in his 11-year-old son, Madzy Evel, for a bit of friendly father-son rivalry. Watch trucks and bikes fly through the air in incredible stunts that will delight audiences of all ages.
For a fun filled day celebrating everything that’s awesome about the outdoor adventure lifestyle, get down to the 2019 National 4×4 Outdoors Show, Boating & Fishing Expo in Melbourne, August 16-18.
