Why a Sydney 4WD Adventure Show?
The owners and potential owners of 4WD vehicles represent a broad spectrum of people, interests and activities, both work and leisure and this SHOW is for you. We hope it will encourage people who are not owners to become ones and take part in the many adventures they can provide. The show brings a network of 4WD Clubs to the event to educate and train people in travelling Australias Great Outdoors.

Why an Adventure Show?
The owners of four-wheel drives have access to a greater part of Australia and use their vehicle to experience the Great Australian Adventure. This show will be for all those businesses to present their products and services to an audience with an adventurous spirit. The audience will be interested in experiencing Australian adventure such as 4WD vehicles and accessories, travel, caravanning, camping, canoeing, mountain bike riding, hiking, scuba diving, mountain climbing, fishing, skiing and boating to name a few.

When is this Show?
This show will be held on the 27th, 28th and 29th of August 2010 and will be an annual event.

Where will the event be held?
The Venue is Sydney Dragway, at Eastern Creek. This will be the permanent home for the 4WD Adventure Show. Sydney Dragway will partner Four Wheel Drive NSW and ACT in developing this site as the four wheel drive hub of Sydney. It will host permanent off road tracks and a commercial 4WD training facility as well as a site for the development of other outdoor adventure facilities.

To find Sydney Dragway, exit off the M7 or M4 onto The Great Western Highway and follow the signs to Eastern Creek Raceway. Sydney Dradway is on Ferrers Road to the south of Eastern Creek Raceway.

The Sydney Dragway is at the hub of Sydney and offers easy access and huge areas of FREE parking for visitors.

What makes this show different to all others?
The 4WD Adventure show is run by four wheel drivers belonging to over 90 associated four wheel clubs who participate in all aspects of four wheel driving and all outdoor activities.

This show offers much more than just a shop. Multiple tracks will be developed for 4WD vehicles, mountain bikes and canoes. The show will host information sessions and demonstrations from a large number of exhibitors to inform and encourage visitors to be involved in outdoor adventures.

It does look to be an awesome day out AB, unfortunately i had made plans to be out of Sydney that day :( and cant change the date, otherwise i would of been there for sure. Its good to see they are trying to make Eastern Creek the four wheel drive hub of Sydney. As there is not many tracks left here in Sydney, and it is only 40mins from home :) :) :)

I was at the Adventure Show for the whole weekend and must say that for it's first year at holding a show of that size, the NSW/ACT 4wd Association needs a pat on the back.
The show was an outstanding success, it was purely a 4wd show and it was well attended by the public all weekend, with over 100 exhibitors and 23 4wd clubs in attendance.
The test track was well constructed to show the public what you could do with a 4wd. The track will be slightly changed to become a driver training track for both clubs and corporate alike.
I am looking forward to next year, it will be even better.

Well I went along today.

Got up at 5am and headed off to Eastern Creek, arriving there at about 9:00am. The day was not looking too promising. (Who in their right mind would hold a fantastic event like this right near a rubbish dump.):icon_bonk: Getting past the smell of things the day was great. I did my thing by wearing my NISANPATROL.COM.AU shirt all day, proudly showing it off to the many people down there.:bowdown:

I was very impressed the displays and events held for the public. There were many great deals, and as always I never had enough money, but the deals were really very good.:clapping:

The fourwheel drive clubs were out in force showing off their goods and what they had to offer to everyone.

I was most impressed with the kamakazee? (I think I spealt it correctly) club and their demonstrations through the day with correct snatching and recovery techniques, well done guys.:icon_driving:

All in all a fantastic day, oh and the kids and the missus enjoyed the day too.

It is a worthwhile trip, only just getting home at 8:30pm tonight.

take care.
