The Sydney International Boat Show presents plenty of activities for the whole family, with entertainment, education, interactive displays and presentations designed to make anyone's day on the water even better. The show opens on the 2nd August at Darling Harbour, and over the 5 days promises to deliver the very best of boating to more than 60,000 expected visitors.

Apart from the nearly 1,000 boats on display at the show, on the upper exhibition level visitors can head to the outdoor Event Deck where two giant pools host on-water demonstrations of marine products. Everyone can see and actually hop aboard kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, pedal boards and other unique vessels on the water. Powerful off-shore power boats will also be on display, as well as speed craft from Ski Racing NSW, iconic Perry surf boats, and an array of tinnies. This is also where the kids get to enjoy free bumper boat rides, while the Event Deck is also home to the outdoor food and beverage bar, a great place to relax and rendezvous while enjoying a spectacular view across the city with Bondi Beach Radio playing a few tunes.

Australia enjoys a rich history centred around boating and travelling great distances across the seas. The Australian National Maritime Museum returns to the Show to present treasures and artefacts, sourced from their collection at the museum. A visit to their display will reveal how the museum is protecting relics from our early maritime history, and some of the preservation activities taking place right now across their impressive collection, and how you can get involved.

The Show welcomes Transport for NSW as our Partner in Safety, hosting the Boating Safety Zone where government regulators and other associations are keen to discuss how they keep our waterways safe, and protect the ecological sustainability of the marine environment. Here you will find information, maps, guides, and plenty of advice about how to make your boating experience better at this educational and interactive area. Don't miss the opportunity to discuss the many ways you can participate in keeping our waterways safe and sustainable.

The show also features the ever-popular fishing masterclasses, as well as on-stage talks by ocean adventurers, better boating advice, and dive tutorials and demonstrations at the Australia International Dive Expo co-located at the show, all for the price of admission.

The show is open each day from 10AM until 7PM, with adult tickets at $22. Up to date details available at www.sydneyboatshow.com.au.
