The 2017 Wide Bay & Fraser Coast Home Show & Caravan, Camping, 4×4 & Fishing Expo was an absolute hit with both exhibitors and visitors. The event took place at the Maryborough Showgrounds from the 18th – 20th August 2017.

The weather was fine and warm during the week, which was perfect for exhibitors and the Australian Events ground crew setting up and it stayed like that all weekend with winds picking up slighting on Saturday. Previous years saw an exceptional growth in numbers as this event gained momentum, and visitor numbers this year were just as positive.

The event brought together companies showcasing everything from caravans, camper trailers, RV’s and 4×4’s to home and outdoor living ideas, lifestyle products and camping equipment. The total number of exhibitors at the 2017 event was 195!

Visitors were kept entertained and learnt new skills with daily cooking demonstrations from both Ranger Nick and Peter Wolfe, the 4×4 demo track presented by Australian Offroad Academy and the Berkley Supertank Fishing Show.

We would also like to formally congratulate Tahnee Kersnovski on winning the 4 night cabin stay thanks to Discover South Burnett and Liz Searles on winning the 2.5kw split air conditioning unit fully installed thanks to Climate Control Systems.

Lastly, we would like to thank all the exhibitors that contributing to making this event the best one yet and thank you to the visitors who made it to the event over the weekend; we hope you enjoyed the event! Watch this space for 2018 dates!
