The Rig Gallery: Show 'N' Shine

Come check out some of Queensland’s best 4x4 rigs and hottest mods

New to 2021, the Show ‘N’ Shine: Rig Gallery is a new feature at the National 4x4 Show. It allows members of the off-road community to showcase their beasts to peers and the public alike. Your builds will inspire our 4x4 Visitors to go above and beyond with their own projects. 

The competition caters for all sorts of rigs; new school and old school; battle hardened off-road rigs; multi-purpose work rigs; and even weekend show ponies. We want them all! It's not all about the rigs though, meet the car owners and listen to stories of their adventures, build experiences and lessons learned. Become part of our community and you’ll never look back.
