The biggest show of its kind in regional NSW starts this Friday at Lismore Showground.
The Yellow Pages 4WD Caravan Camping & Marine Show provides people with an opportunity to view hundreds of the latest industry products at the one venue.
And, with more than 350,000 registered caravans and recreational vehicles in Australia today, this industry is among the fastest growing tourism sectors in Australia.
The show is in its 13th year and last year broke two significant records – more exhibitors and more attendees than ever before.
In addition to the hundreds of exhibitors, the show will feature entertainment, including motorcycle sensations the Freestyle Trial Team who continue to thrill their fans with their dazzling motorcycle feats.
There will also be a race-car simulator for race-car fans, and helicopter winching displays.
And those who like Aussie bush entertainment should make their way over to the Country Energy entertainment stage to hear balladeer, Errol Gray, perform.
For fishing fans, the Yamaha Fishing Tank will be there again this year, along with a fishing simulator which will excite the experienced and not-so-experienced fisher.
For the kids, there will be rides, face-painting, stilt walkers, and even a visit from Big Dog to ensure the little ones are entertained.
The show also offers a lucky-door prize. Every paying visitor to the show will have a chance to win a three-metre Quintrex tinny and motor valued at $2100, courtesy of Watson’s Trimming and Marine.
The Yellow Pages 4WD Caravan Camping & Marine Show is a major fundraiser for Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter, but also provides a major boost to the Northern Rivers economy.
The first 12 years of the Show has raised more than $800,000 for the rescue helicopter and last year injected approximately $2 million into the local economy, providing spin-offs to local accommodation providers, hotels and restaurants.
The Yellow Pages 4WD Caravan Camping & Marine Show will be held at Lismore Showground this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Gates open at 9am each day and close at 4pm.
