Merv Hughes

Merv Hughes was a big-hearted fast bowler and an Aussie sporting legend, loved by cricket fans globally as he ripped through batting line-ups all over the world. Representing Australia between 1985 and 1994, Merv gave every ounce of effort to his country, and helped it to re-climb the ranks of Test cricket.

Aside from being one of Australia's most recognisable and loved cricket identities, Merv also has an enormous passion for fishing. Its this passion that saw Merv release his first book in 2006, ‘Caught in the Deep’. By his own admission, Merv is along way short of being an expert angler, but as Merv explains with his mixture of humour, anecdotes and a little input from some of Merv's more experienced fisho mates, you don't have to be a pro to enjoy fishing. All you need is a sense of adventure, a love of the outdoors and a willingness to learn from those who know! In 2015 Merv extended his love of fishing to TV, in a new fishing show he co-hosted on ONE.

 

John "Roothy" Rooth

The 4WD Legend himself John "Roothy' Rooth will be making his only Melbourne Show appearance on the Waeco CFX Outback Stage. John's spent most of his life in the bush as a prospector, machinery operator, trail bike tour guide and his current work as a photo journalist and presenter for 4WD shows. With three children who all love camping, John's been fighting for free camping and track access for the last fifteen years. You can say hello to Roothy on his stand.

 

Shaun Whale & Graham Cahill

Come along and meet Graham and Shauno from the epic 4WD Action DVDs – the blokes who genuinely make 4WDing accessible and available for all Aussies. Find out what really goes on when the cameras shut off and they’re finished filming Australia’s best 4WD adventures in their pair of tough old 4WDs, Shorty and the Dirty 30. It’s all about real 4WDing, real 4WDers and real adventure!

 

Jase Andrews

Jase Andrews is the host of Australia’s number one four-wheel-drive and adventure show, All 4 Adventure. Driven by an unquenchable love for the undiscovered regions of Australia this modern day explorer is persistent and fearless when heading out into the wild. Jase honed his skills in the Australian bush from an early age having driven across Australia six times before his mid-20s, and he considers northern Australia to be his second home.
