With over 160 local and regional exhibitors, you can set your sights upon thousands of new, top-notch products and services, including caravans, camper-trailers, motorhomes, 4WDs, camping gear and accessories. That’s not all though. You’ll be able to learn the ins and outs of camp oven cooking with Ranger Nick, brush up on your fishing skills at the Shimano Fishing Show, and watch the guys at TJM Toowoomba push their 4WDs to the limit on the 4X4 Off-Road Skills Track. And, of course, there’s always time for a bite to eat in the food courts!
Tropical North Qld, Qld
Reef to Reef
August 9-12, 2018
This is your chance to take part in Australia’s newest mountain bike race, which starts on the reef-fringed Coral Sea coast and heads inland across a network of trails through the Tablelands, hinterland, farm lands, mountain bike parks and tropical rainforests, so you’ll get to see the best of Tropical North Queensland. The race concludes back at the coast, four days and 195km later. Every day, you will ride new terrain but you won’t be faced with anything too technical – all you really need is a reasonable level of fitness and some mountain biking skills. The race is open to ages 15 and over, and you can peddle it solo or tackle it as a team.
