The perennial favourite of the Show, the Waeco CFX Outback Stage played host  to the finest and funniest of Australia’s offroading television personalities including Jase and Simon from All 4 Adventure, Pat Callinan and Shaun and Graham from 4WD Action! They are as laid-back and approachable in person as they are on TV. Always up for a laugh, autograph and selfie. 

The Proving Ground presented by Motorama 4x4xMORE offered visitors the chance to experience 4wd'ing on a variety of surfaces to simulate being off the beaten track, including a compact rock segment, timber logs and an artificial steep hill. Visitors were able to experience how various brands of Motorama's SUV's and Ute's handle the terrain with the help of the 4x4xMORE team and Four Wheel Drive Queensland. 

Presented by The Anglers, experts both on both cooking and fishing alike shared their tips and trick on catching your fish and eating it too! Catering to everyone from beginners to the seasoned angler and those that just love to hear a great new recipe.
