Visitor Information

Important information

After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision not to hold the National 4x4 Outdoors Show, Fishing & Boating Expos scheduled for Brisbane and Melbourne in 2020. Instead, we look forward to bringing you bigger and better Shows when they return in 2021.

Brisbane: 19 – 21 March 2021 
Melbourne: 20 – 22 August 2021

While we are disappointed that we are unable to come together this year - and know that you will be too - our priority when planning these Shows is to bring you a world-class experience that celebrates the great outdoors, and in a safe environment.

In our best efforts to safely bring the community together this year, we explored a range of options. One of these was to move the Shows to later in the year. After monitoring the ever-evolving situation, there are many uncertainties still in place that impact our ability to deliver the experience that you have come to expect and deserve.

Further information regarding the next course of action for ticket holders and exhibitors is being communicated via email.

We thank you for your patience while we have worked through this and for your continued support for these Shows no matter the date. Read the full statement here.
