Whilst there is an abundance of boats and all the gear for them, the event is not short on education and entertainment.

The Boating Safety Zone has representatives from an extensive array of organisations, who are able to assist visitors with information about boating and how to enjoy it safely.

At the MyBoatingLife Entertainment Precinct, visitors can enjoy master classes from some of Australia’s leading boaties.

Classes will run for those wishing to learn to fish, those with more in depth knowledge on the sport and for the sailing, cooking and better boating enthusiasts.

For those visitors looking for some light entertainment, the stage will host eighties cricketing legend and boating and fishing tragic Len Pascoe. Together with industry stalwart Kieran Reekie from radio program Hi-Tide, they will bring you many a story about their boating and fishing antics.

The Sydney International Boat Show is put together by the Boating Industry Association (BIA) and supported by its Partner in Safety, Transport for NSW.

The show opens on Thursday 30 July and runs for 5 days until 3 August.

It opens at 10am each day and remains open until 8pm.

A show ticket gives visitor’s unlimited access to both show locations.
