Travel all over the countryside
2017 Melbourne Leisurefest is on again showcasing more caravans, pop-tops, tents, camper trailers, motorhomes, campervans and 44 off road and touring accessories than ever.

2017 Melbourne Leisurefest
Hit the road

From Thursday 5 to Sunday 8 October, Sandown Racecourse is the place to be for all the inspiration you'll need to hit the open road.

There will be two stages featuring live music, seminars, demonstrations and much more. Whether you're a seasoned -traveller or new to the great outdoors lifestyle, there will be a range of educational sessions and demonstrations to suit everyone.

For the kids, free rides will be available on the Saturday and Sunday and plenty of entertainment. They'll even be able to join the Caravanning Explorers' Club, brought to you by the Caravan Industry Association of Victoria, where they can pick up a free show bag.

Stop by and say hello to the Australian travelling fish show, Supertank, which gives you a 'fish eye view' without getting wet. This spectacular 15 metre long, 3 metre high Yamaha Supertank is a must for fishermen. Experts will demonstrate the different types of lures and how fish respond to them just like they would out on the water.
