Rosehill Gardens in nautical mode for 10th Rosehill Trailer Boat Show

Rosehill Trailer Boat Show BIA NSW
It is widely known as the home of the Golden Slipper, the world’s richest race for two-year-old thoroughbreds, but come the weekend of March 16-17, the famous racecourse plays host to the boating industry.

More than 60 of the state’s marine dealers will be on hand to show off their product lines, including all manner of boats, from blue water craft through to canoes and kayaks.

Fishing tackle, marine electronics, as wide a range of boating accessories as one could find will all play their role in making the Rosehill Trailer Boat Show the success it has been over recent years.

Fishing is recognised as arguably the most popular sporting pastime in Australia, and for those who like nothing more than ‘wetting a line’ a visit to the show must surely rate as an absolute must.

In addition to the Supertank and its performing fish, show visitors will be able to see first hand the weigh-ins from the Yamaha Bream Australian Open taking place on Sydney Harbour.

Thirty teams are contesting the event and following competition each day the crews and boats will travel convoy style to the show for weigh-ins.



Show visitors will be able to chat with the experts and view their boats and equipment, even meeting up with the stars of the television show Australian Fishing Tournament in Kris Hickson, Russell Babekuhz, Daniel Brown and Steve Morgan.

The Rosehill Trailer Boat Show will operate from 9am to 5pm on both days and dismissing the old saying that ‘there is no such thing as a free lunch’, admission and parking is free!

For further information contact the Boating Industry Association of NSW, telephone 1300 7 BOATS (26287), or (02) 9438-2077 or visit the website www.bia.org.au
