By Unsealed 4X4 7 Min Read

The Adelaide 4WD and Adventure Show is coming up this October at Adelaide Showground. This event is one of a kind in South Australia as it is presented in conjunction with the Club Marine SA Boat and Fishing Show, meaning visitors get two shows in one!


The Adelaide 4WD and Adventure Show is the one-stop place for visitors to see and purchase a variety of products and services relating to the outdoor leisure industry. The Show features all the big brands in caravans, camper trailers and motorhomes, new 4WDs and SUVs and camping accessories, while also having massive displays of new boats, marine equipment and fishing tackle.

The event also features a full schedule of activity and activations all weekend, with something for everyone! Three big stage areas, special guests, demo areas, and prizes and giveaways make the Adelaide 4WD and Adventure Show and Club Marine SA Boat and Fishing Show one not to be missed!

All the 4WDriving action

The 4WD and Adventure Show is designed as an also interactive experience that equips visitors with the gear, the advice, and the inspiration to get out there and explore. Show Director Peter Woods said over the years he has found that people are looking for knowledge, tips, and info that helps them on their adventures, and this is exactly what they will find at the 2023 Show.

“The Show is designed as a one-stop-shop for all the latest gear, but also for the latest information, knowledge and expert tips,” Peter said.


“We like to give a try-before-you-buy type experience where we can and see this event as an ideal place to get up close and personal with the products, they are looking at buying, and giving them a real experience to help in decision making”.

“This year we are excited to be bringing back the Isuzu Iron Summit, which is an activation that gives visitors an extreme 4WD experience, as well as demonstrating the capabilities of Isuzu vehicles.”

“We are also introducing the new Tough Dog Traction Track, which will be set up with specially designed ramps that are used to demonstrate the capabilities of a vehicle and give audiences an up-close look at exactly how the vehicle works”

“The Show also features camp cooking demos, fishing demos, boat license testing and special guests.” Peter said.

Club 4×4 Adventure Hub and Madventure Stage

A major attraction of the Adelaide 4WD and Adventure Show is the Club 4X4 Adventure Hub, which offers technical and practical information on 4WDriving to equip visitors for exploring our country.  The Club 4X4 Adventure Hub includes the Recovery Demo area with demonstrations on 4WD recoveries, towing, reversing, and other tech tips; as well as the new Tough Dog Traction Track. 

New this year is the Madventure Overland Stage, an interactive stage area with expert presentations on a range of topics all weekend long. This stage will give you the know-how and technical info on what gear you need and how to use it properly.
