National 4x4 Show @ Brisbane 2011 - Coming Soon

Queensland's biggest outdoor lifestyle and adventure show – the Brisbane Tinnie and Tackle Show and National 4x4 and Outdoors Expo – is coming to the RNA Showgrounds in April 2011.

To make this an even more incredible event, extreme fisherman and adrenalin junkie Matt Watson, host of The Ultimate Fishing Show, will be making special appearances at the show.

Part stuntman, part conservationist and self-confessed “mad fisherman”, Matt has been known to wrestle with huge Marlin from the flimsy protection of a jet ski, and even a surfboard! Matt pulls off impossible catches – unbelievably big fish from ridiculously small boats.

Matt will be sharing his amazing fishing tips and telling tales about his extreme adventures.

Another draw card will be AFL star Peter „Spida‟ Everitt, from The Great Australian Doorstep. Spida will be on hand to meet fans and offer his tips on how to cook the best BBQ meals. He will be cooking up a storm at the Waeco Outback Stage.

This is a great day out for the whole family. There‟s fishing, four wheel drives, camper trailers, big and small boats, lures, tents and sleeping bags.

National 4x4 and Outdoors Show event manager Mark Petersen said to have these names at the 2011show is exciting news for those who love their weekend toys and outdoor experiences.

“Each year the shows get bigger and better and the 2011 show will continue the trend. Our 4x4 & Outdoors exhibitor space is already 90% sold out with many great exhibitors already signed up,” Mark said.
Show highlights include The Waeco Outback Stage, where outdoor enthusiasts can pick up details on 4wd tips and techniques, camping, outdoor and cooking tips. Special guests will be taking to the stage and sharing their experiences.

The Action Arena presented by Mickey Thompson and Dirt Comp Magazine is a regular crowd pleaser with a full 4wd test track, providing visitors with a hands-on “off the beaten track experience”.

Mr Petersen said the Action Arena will give patrons the opportunity to learn from qualified instructors and get tips on how to approach hill climbs, rock and log crossings and much more. Show-goers should also make plans to catch the Loveday 4x4 Extreme Show and the Mini Bike Mayhem Stage.

Queensland boaties can look forward to getting the first look at new release boats from Bundaberg boat builder Sea Jay.

Other highlights will include the popular Bream Invitational Fishing Tournament including live weighs-in every afternoon of the show, plus expert presentations from top speakers including; Bill Corten, Dave Downie, Jason Ehrlich and Brett Thomson on the Fishing Expo Stage.

This year will also see the return of the hugely popular Sports Fishing Simulator, where visitors can hook themselves a virtual fish.

For kids, the Marine Zone is back – the „2 Bent Rods‟ team will be teaching children how to fish like the pro‟s, as well as the basics of safe and responsible shore-based fishing practices.

Marine Queensland events manager Jason Plant said “The 2011 show has been expanded and improved upon and we‟re expecting record numbers of both visitors and exhibitors,”

With more on-site parking facilities, and more exhibition space than ever before the 2011 Brisbane Tinnie and Tackle Show and National 4x4 Show is must for everyone who loves getting outdoors.
