A large selection of local and interstate exhibitors will be on site for the event, which starts on Friday 6 May at 11am and concludes Sunday, 8 May at 4pm.

This three-day event, held at the Ballarat Showgrounds, will showcase everything from the latest in caravans, campervans and camper trailers, 4wds and 4×4 accessories with retailer demonstrations, and adventure and travel inspirations.

“We’re very excited to be bringing The Great Outdoor and 4×4 Expo back to the Ballarat Showgrounds,” said Rod Lockwood, owner of The Great Outdoor and 4×4 Expo.

“A place synonymous with the great city of Ballarat, we felt that it was only right to continue delivering Ballarat’s only caravan, camping and 4×4 show at the venue.

“On the back of a well-received Expo in Mornington, we will be continuing to follow government mandates requiring proof of COVID vaccination or valid exemption.

We’ll also have a door prize for one lucky event attendee to win. Thanks to EE Day & Sons, we’ll be giving away a Minelab Metal Detector and equipment.”

There are bargains galore available at The Ballarat Great Outdoor and 4×4 Expo.

The Expo will also include camping gear, home and vehicle accessories and a unique range of outdoor furniture and wares from boutique businesses.
