ALL ABOUT FAMILIES

By Australian Events, 13 August, 2018


The Fraser Coast Expo is back and will fill the Maryborough Showgrounds with over 170 companies showcasing the very latest camper trailers, caravans, new cars, four wheel drives plus boating and fishing accessories as well as home and lifestyle products.

Organiser Bob Carroll says it is all about families, and families are looking for ways to get their kids to disconnect from technology and get active.

“These sorts of holidays do that brilliantly, but they are also very affordable and let’s face it, all kids, and lots of adults, love getting out and enjoying the great outdoors.”

“The increase in popularity is driven by more families holidaying locally more often, with people on the lookout for the ideal, caravan, camper trailer, boat or four-wheel-drive for their outdoor adventures,” Bob says.

Other highlights include the 4×4 Skills Track with Australian Offroad, get up close and personal with the reptiles with Luke’s Reptile Kingdom and free rides for kids.

Fishing journalist and presenter Dave ‘Mossy’ Moss is returning aboard the giant Shimano Fishing Show for his fishing and casting demonstrations throughout the day with lots of giveaways and prizes to be won including a fold up ‘SWELL’ boat with motor and heaps of accessories.

This expo is like 2 shows for the price of 1. You really need to make sure that you give yourself a few hours to get around and see everything and come prepared to buy because there will be plenty of great expo deals, that is for sure !
