The Sydney Trailer Boat Show makes its much-anticipated return to Rosehill Gardens Racecourse on 7 and 8 April 2018 between 10am and 5pm, featuring more than 30 exhibitors with over 250 boats on display at the free-to-enter event.

Everything for the fun-loving or serious boatie will be on display, from family favourite bowriders to fishing tinnies and jet skis. Anyone who loves water skiing, fishing, wakeboarding or just cruising around with the family will find plenty to see and learn at the Rosehill Trailer Boat Show.

Trailer boating is increasing in popularity due to advances in trailer technology and access to improved local boat ramps. The variety of trailer boats now available, along with choice of engine types, makes trailer boat ownership more affordable and more convenient than ever before. And visiting the show couldn't be easier, with plenty of free parking, free admission and trains to Rosehill station adjacent to the show's entrance.

Alan Blake, President of the Boating Industry Association Ltd staging the event, says trailer boats represents the single most popular class of motorised boating in Australia. "The Rosehill Trailer Boat Show brings together the leading dealers from across Sydney and beyond, all ready to make a deal with existing boat owners wanting to make a trade-in, or with new boaties doing some research or making their first purchase. They may even consider a pre-loved boat," he said. "This is the one trailer boat show where all your questions about owning a trailer boat can be answered."

Also returning this year to the Rosehill Trailer Boat show is Australia's largest fishing demonstration tank. At 15 metres long, the glass tank holds 14,500 litres of water with live fish, presenting an educational and entertaining fishing experience throughout the show. Given the popularity of fishing with trailer boat owners, fishing rods and tackle are also featured at the show.

Along with the giant tank, the NSW Department of Primary Industries returns to the show, presenting all the latest information and guidelines on fishing in the state. NSW Roads and Maritime Services are also present to answer all your licensing queries, while the incredibly successful Old4New lifejacket program is onsite, where you can learn about the wear, care and servicing of your lifejacket.

This Trailer Boat Show is the longest running boat show in the state, with plenty of nostalgia mixed in with the latest boat and fishing technology. It's a welcome return to Rosehill Gardens, especially with the free admission, free parking and a location accessible to so many fishing enthusiasts.
