Action Arena

This year our Action Arena takes an exciting departure from the regular schedule, introducing some fabulous new acts, never before seen at the National 4x4 Outdoors Show:

 

Off Road Rush

Offroad Rush

Chris Western is no stranger to offroad racing fans.  In 2009, he joined forces with Mickey Thompson Tires to form the Offroad Rush Mickey Thompson Race Team, going on to win four class championships in the Australian Off Road Championships.  Not to be outdone, he has competed against the world’s best in the iconic Finke Desert Race and the Score International Baja 1000 in Mexico.

Team D-Max

Isuzu Team D-Max is Australia’s longest running and most famous precision riving team.  For more than 45 years they have performed in front of millions of people each year throughout Australia, and this year you too can join the team for a hair-raising drive on two wheels, or to climb the Iron Summit.

Donal Hancock

Donal grew up on a 30,000 acre cattle station in near Injune in western Queensland.  Horses were an essential way to gather cattle and that is where his interest in horses began.  From 2008 - 2009 he found himself on the rodeo circuit riding bulls on the coastline of Queensland - which in turn led to a full time job from 2009-2011 in the "Australian Outback Spectacular" show located on the Gold Coast where he performed on horseback for of crowds of thousands each day.

Dale Formosa

Founder of Shaundar Herding School at Greenbank, Dale knows working dogs better than the average bloke. A renowned trainer, watch in amazement at the sheer talent of his sheepdogs as they perform and work a herd of sheep around our Action Arena.  You could also learn a few tips on how to turn your pooch into a star performer.
