Brisbane Boat Show Opens Tomorrow (Friday)

: 23 AUGUST 2018

24 – 26 August, Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre South Bank
From tomorrow and continuing through the weekend, Queensland’s most comprehensive recreational marine exhibition is at capacity, presenting everything for the boating lover, covering cruising, ski and wakeboarding, kayaking and fishing.
The top marine dealers and manufacturers in the state and from across Australia have gathered alongside government agencies, offering visitors the chance to view and compare products, learn about the features of various watercraft, and hear about the regulations and safeguards in place to protect our state’s waterways.
Up to five million Australians enjoy recreational time on the water each year, and Queensland’s boating facilities are considered world class. Well-equipped marinas can be found locally and in regional coastal centres, so there’s high-quality infrastructure in place for boaters of all persuasions. The state continues to remain a well-established first-choice destination for cruising, long-range fishing or inshore water sports.
Alan Blake, President of the Boating Industry Association Ltd who organise the event, said there’s no shortage of opportunities to enjoy Queensland’s coastal or inland waterways. “As an industry group, the Brisbane Boat Show again reflects the tremendous enthusiasm Queenslander’s have for spending time in and around the water. With hundreds of boats on display, and all the gear to go along with them, this show leaves no doubt about the many ways individuals and families can do so,” he said.
Whatever form or style of boating meets your needs, the Brisbane Boat Show presents the extensive range of marine equipment available in Australia today.
Adult tickets to the show are $15, Children $5 (under 5’s are free), Family $35, Seniors & Pensioners $12. All tickets are $5 after 5pm (per person, door sales only. This offer excludes family tickets).
The popular fishing masterclasses are included with entry, as are the bumper boat rides for kids on the indoor 16 metre pond.
