Tens of thousands of holidaymakers and adventurers are set to descend on Sandown Racecourse from October 8 to 11 for Australia's biggest RV, camping and 4x4 show, Melbourne Leisurefest.
Presented by the Caravan Industry Association Victoria (CIA VIC) and the Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce (VACC), the event will showcase thousands of the latest RV, camping, 4x4 and outdoors products and accessories from Australia's leading manufacturers.
Now in its 8th year, Melbourne Leisurefest is more than just a product show, but an event where visitors can see, touch and experience all aspects of outdoor life.
The 4x4 Village will be back and bigger than ever before and AL-KO will be demonstrating their electronic brake actuation system (ESC) on the track. Visitors will be able to ride in the passenger seat to get a feel of how different caravans tow.
For fishermen, the spectacular 15 metre long, 3 metre high Yamaha Supertank gives a 'fish-eye view' as experts demonstrate the different types of lures plus plenty of tourism regions will be represented to help travellers make more informed decisions about where they would like to visit.
A new Centre Stage will host product demonstrations, cooking classes, competitions and live music to get the crowd rocking, an expanded kids' area will have lots of fun and entertainment to ensure that the whole family has a great day out and shuttle buggies will ensure everyone can get around the show with ease.
Getting to the show is easy by car or public transport. There's plenty of free car parking space available at Sandown Racecourse, enter from Corrigan Road or Springvale Road. It's also just a short walk from the Springvale Railway Station and the Sandown Park Railway Station is right at Sandown Racecourse.
