Boats and fishing join Melbourne Leisurefest

'Melbourne Leisurefest'    BIA VIC    Click Here to view large photo

Boats, fishing gear and marine accessories will be included for the first time in this year’s Melbourne Leisurefest, which runs from 2 to 5 October at Sandown Racecourse. Formerly known as the RV & Camping Leisurefest, the event also includes four-wheel-drive and touring vehicles along with the usual caravans, RVs and camping gear.

Among the first marine businesses to sign up are Avante Marine and Club Marine, along with Plasview Boat Windscreens, Corporate Fishing Charters, Rugged Shark shoes and Rescue Tape Australia.

The organisers have ensured that display space is affordable for voluntary groups such as boating, fishing, four-wheel-drive, RV and caravan clubs which cannot always afford to be at events of this size.

Many of them are expected to be on had at Leisurefest to give free information and advice.

Best of all for many patrons, car parking at Sandown is plentiful and free.

Melbourne Leisurefest has come about through a partnership between the Caravan Trade & Industries Association of Victoria (CTIAV), the Boating Industry Association (BIA) of Victoria and Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce (VACC).

The event is claiming a first for an Australian recreational show with both on-road and off-road vehicle tests at the expansive Sandown venue.

In addition to test drives for caravans, campers, motor homes and towable boats on the motor racing circuit, there will be four-wheel-drive demonstrations on a newly built off-road circuit, many with off-road caravans and campers in tow.

The three partners in the event all have long experience in organising outstanding shows , with the Motor Show, Boat Shows and Caravan Shows attracting more than 350,000 visitors each year.

Melbourne Leisurefest runs from Thursday 2 October to Sunday 5 October at Sandown Racecourse, Springvale, from 10am to 5pm daily. Developed from the RV & Camping Leisurefest, it is a joint venture by the Caravan Trade & Industries Association of Victoria (CTIAV), Boating Industry Association (BIA) of Victoria and Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce (VACC),
