Welcome to the 2017 Brisbane Boat Show

Welcome to the 2017 Brisbane Boat Show

The Brisbane Boat Show has a 56-year history serving Australia’s largest boating population. With boating part of the Queensland DNA, the Brisbane Boat Show warrants being the Premier Boating Event for the region.

With a triumphant return in 2016 to the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Southbank, the show promises an epic effort in 2017. A commitment is being made to add another hall to the show at the venue. More space means more opportunities to display all of the new products, and boating concepts and ideas released to the market by the Show’s manufacturing neighbours.

The Show is owned and organised by the Boating Industry Association (BIA), the voice of Australia’s boating industry. The BIA has other shows in their portfolio like the Adelaide Boat Show (30 June – 2 July) and Sydney International Boat Show (3 – 7 August), which means that Brisbane Boat Show is among other industry leading events.

Queensland is the state where recreational boating is a major part of the lifestyle and the BIA understands the importance of the Brisbane Boat Show for so many people. The new and experienced boater can come to the show to be educated and entertained by the opportunities the boating lifestyle has to offer – or even bring the whole family for a great day out.

While fishing plays a big part of the event, other boating tastes are also catered for. Water ski and wake boats, personal watercraft, family cruisers, canoes and kayaks, and more, will be plentiful.

The boats remain the show’s heroes, but expect to get all your gear for your boating and fishing needs too.

Show Dates: 25 to 27 August

Show Hours: 10 am to 8 pm (closes 6 pm Sunday).
