The Action Arena was a highlight for many, featuring thrilling and exciting acts by expert stunt performers. Former Crusty Demon Matt ‘Schuie’ Schubring and his FMX Motorcross team performed electrifying daredevil tricks at the arena including backflips, wheelies and several other tricks that shocked and wound up onlookers.

The Proving Ground gave visitors a chance to test out a four-wheel drive in a controlled environment and really showed what a modern vehicle is capable of. There were plenty of experts, such as legendary drivers Jamie Whincup and Craig Lowndes, there to answer any and all questions and to sign autographs for the excited crowd.

With 25,000 square metres of space, it is no surprise that there were plenty of stalls to showcase thousands of unique products at expo-only discounted prices and solutions for all things outdoors.

National 4×4 Outdoors show, Fishing & Boating Expo provided a fantastic day out for families, no matter how big or small. Crowds were invited to discover their inner outdoors-self by learning of the wonderful opportunities in Brisbane, including bush and beach tracks for some incredible outdoor weekend plans.
