Sydney International Boat Show opens today

Sydney International Boat Show

Australia’s biggest boat spectacular, the Sydney International Boat Show is underway at Darling Harbour and for those that can’t make it during the day, organisers the Boating Industry Association of NSW have a special ‘$5 after 5pm’ ticket available.

That means you have only one hour to view the big boats on the water at Cockle Bay Marina, but three hours to tour the Halls at adjacent Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre. And for adults, the ‘$5 after 5pm’ ticket represents a saving of $13 over normal admission prices.

Don’t forget to visit our Trade-a-Boat and TrailerBoat stand for your chance to win a Webster’s Twinfisher 4.9 Runabout, with a Yamaha F80 outboard and trailer, valued at $45,000.

Every showgoer is entitled to one free entry into our fabulous competition (which runs through to September 15), or buy a magazine and receive 10 entry coupons or subscribe to either Trade-a-Boat or TrailerBoat or both and receive 100 entries.

The Sydney International Boat Show runs from today until Monday, August 3.

Session times are: 10am to 8pm Halls and 10am to 6pm Marina.

Ticket prices are: adult $18 at the gate, $15 online, $5 after 5pm; children $10 at the gate, $8 online; family $42 at the gate, $35 online; and, three-day passes $39.
