With a long and proud tradition of bringing the joys of the boating lifestyle to its guests, many visitors make the voyage to Sydney on an annual basis. Its popularity is well known, being the largest recreational marine event in the Southern Hemisphere.
Whilst the boats and all the gear for them are the heroes of the show, it is also recognised that the entertainment and education package that is presented is very much a key factor that ensures the expected 65,000 visitors will have a great day out.
With the Exhibition Halls at capacity and the specially built marina in Cockle Bay accommodating over 160 vessels too big for the halls, show visitors will be treated to an enormous array of things to see and do.
Those wishing to visit the show can learn more about the varity of guest speakers and activities by visiting the shows website at www.sydneyboatshow.com.au or following the event on Facebook or Twitter.
