Visitors to the 2023 Sydney International Boat Show have enjoyed the broad lifestyle appeal of spending time in and around the waterways of New South Wales.
The Show’s final day is tomorrow (Sunday 6 August) at ICC Sydney and Cockle Bay at Darling Harbour, with doors open from 10am until 5pm.
Recognised as one of the world’s leading boat shows, the Sydney event has attracted crowds over these past three days, with a comprehensive and diverse recreational marine exhibition, filling the exhibition halls at the ICC Sydney, the custom-built marina at Cockle Bay and surrounding foreshore, presenting everything for the boating lover in one iconic location, covering cruising, sailing, ski and wakeboarding, kayaking, snorkelling, fishing and more.
Over 200 marine businesses from across Australia and beyond have converged on Darling Harbour.
More than 600 vessels and thousands of marine products are on show alongside government agencies, offering visitors the chance to view and compare hundreds of the latest products, learn about the features of various watercraft, and hear about the regulations and safeguards in place to protect our state’s waterways.
Up to five million Australians enjoy recreational time on or around the water each year, and Australia’s boating and marine facilities are considered world class. Well-equipped marinas can be found locally and in regional coastal centres, so there’s high-quality infrastructure in place for boaters of all persuasions.
Australia is fast becoming a well-established first-choice destination for cruising, long-range fishing or inshore water sports with local and international visitors.
The show is open until 5pm on Sunday. Tickets can be purchased online or at the Show itself. Adult one-day tickets are $32.50 each. Children under 16 years of age are admitted free with a paying adult.
