The Sydney International Boat Show is expecting over 70,000 attendees, making it the largest boat show in the Southern Hemisphere. Located at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre & Cockle Bay Marina in Darling Harbour, there will be plenty to see at this exciting event. Those interested in power or sail boating will see vessels of both types in a display designed to show the classic and creative alternative to modern craft. The annual photo gallery and competition is another unique way for yacht enthusiasts to get involved by submitting a photo of their favorite recreational boating moment.
