Townsville's Annual Fishing & Outdoor Expo

Townsville’s Annual Fishing & Outdoor Expo is a Mecca for boaties, fishers and lovers of the great outdoors has now become the largest fishing, boating and outdoor recreation expo in north Queensland.

The Townsville Annual Fishing & Outdoor Expo has the strong support of local boat dealers who have supported the show wholeheartedly for the past three years and have been the catalyst for the growth of the show. Over the past few years the growing numbers of camper vans, motor homes and camper trailers has seen demand for space at the show grow.

Fishing and outdoor pursuits are really some of the cheapest forms of family entertainment and no matter how tight the budget is, wetting a line with the kids or mates is still a popular pastime and the growing number of recreational fishers is proof of that.

The event now draws 10,000 fishing, boating and outdoor enthusiasts each year. Attractions include the very popular Shimano Super Tank and the Townsville Sportfishing Club will again be manning its club display as well as giving talks on rigging lures, throwing a cast net, targeting specific species of fish and other interesting topics.

This years Fishing and Outdoor Expo will be held on the 28th and 29th May 2016 at the AFL Grounds, Murray Sports Complex.
