Showcasing recreational boating, on-water lifestyle, safety on our waterways and much more, the Sydney International Boat Show is New South Wales’ premier boating event. With almost 5 million people enjoying the waterways of Australia each year, the show is more relevant than ever.
The Sydney International Boat Show takes over Darling Harbour, making it the largest recreational boat show in the southern hemisphere. Filling the entire exhibition space at the ICC including an open-air event deck, as well as the show’s purpose-built marina on Cockle Bay, there’s a feast for the eyes, mind and stomach.
Every year, more than 60,000 people visit the show, which is renowned for being the pinnacle of boating expos.
The show’s purpose-built marina begins construction in July, a month before the show and becomes home to 200 on-water vessels berthed at Cockle Bay. When the show launches on Thursday 1 August, you’ll be able to step aboard luxury boats from exhibitors, Riviera, Fairline Yachts, Beneteau and more.
For the ultimate Boat Show experience, visit The Event Deck. Hosting a 35-metre boating safety pool, with its own DJ island and a 7-metre tall lighthouse!
The Event Deck will be hosting on-water demonstrations of marine products including
hop aboard kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, pedal boards and other unique water vessels.
Kids can enjoy free bumper boat rides, while parents make the most of a great place to relax and rendezvous while enjoying spectacular Darling Harbour views and soak up the atmosphere provided by Bondi Beach Radio.
