Rosehill Trailer Boat Show

It may boast more fame as the home of the Golden Slipper, but the Rosehill Gardens Event Centre in Parramatta, NSW is equally at home playing host to the boating industry.

Over the weekend of March 5 to 6, more than 50 of the state’s leading marine dealerships will gather to present the 8th annual Rosehill Trailer Boat Show, an initiative of the boating industry’s peak body, the Boating Industry Association (BIA) of NSW.

During its tenure at Rosehill and in its previous guise as ‘The Great Silverwater Boat Show’, this is an exhibition that boating enthusiasts in NSW have embraced wholeheartedly.

It has become widely recognised as a ‘trailer boaties paradise’, with dealers in boats, engines, marine electronics, boat trailers, canoes and kayaks, fishing tackle and general boating accessories all keen to do business and clear stock.

“The original thought behind the show was simple – give dealers the opportunity to clear their decks in readiness for the next season’s new models,” explained Domenic Genua, marketing and event manager for the BIA.

“We’ve deliberately produced the show as a totally informal, rather laid-back affair, and I think visitors have come to appreciate that,” he added.

Two-years ago, the BIA, always keen to promote recreational boating anyway it can, made admission to the event free and this, along with ample free parking, has been seen at the gate with more than 11,000 boaters flocking to the venue last year.

In addition to inspecting the latest boats and nautical equipment, other exhibitors such as NSW Maritime and Club Marine Insurance allow show visitors to renew boating licences, boat registration, collect valuable printed matter on various recreational boating matters and talk insurance with the experts.
