Sydney International Boat Show 12:23pm, Tue 29 Jul 2014BOATLOADS TO SEE AND DO AT THE SYDNEY INTERNATIONAL BOAT SHOW
The 2014 Sydney International Boat Show opens next week with both the Sydney Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island and the Cockle Bay Marina at Darling Harbour filled to capacity. The show presents everything the water-loving Aussie could ever wish for. More than 60,000 visitors are expected at the show which, for the first time, is being held across two spectacular harbour venues, both available on the one ticket, with transport between the venues included for free.
Opening Thursday 31 July, more than 150 boats will be on display at Darling Harbour,
ranging from the more modest, to the most luxurious, making up part of the recreational marine industry valued at $8 billion in Australia. A free continuous harbour ferry service will transport visitors from Darling Harbour across to the Sydney Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island where an additional 210 exhibitors will display Trailer Boats, the latest gadgets and leading products available to recreational boaters this year. The Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island can also be accessed via a free continuous shuttle bus service operating to and from Central Station.
Once there, the Lifejacket Lounge featuring the Glebe Island Beach BBQ, near the entrance to the Exhibition Centre is a wonderful location to rendezvous with friends, catch a bite to eat, have a drink, and enjoy the view across the harbour. Amongst the many exhibitors, regular fishing clinics will take place on stage, also featuring the Musto Fashion Extravaganza (a ‘must-see’ every year), and talks by adventurers Lisa Blair and Andrew Abrahams. Lisa will speak about her goal of being the first woman to sail unassisted around Antarctica. Andrew will present amazing stories and pictures from his incredible feat of rowing solo across the Atlantic Ocean. Celebrity Chef Bart Beek will also be there cooking-up culinary delights and giving demonstrations.
