Stay for free at the Great NZ Outdoor & Leisure Show

A great place to compare products and plan your great escape is the inaugural Great NZ Outdoor & Leisure Show at ASB Baypark Arena, Mt Maunganui, this September.

There will be boating, camping, motorhomes and everything in between. With your next on-the-road holiday never far away, and your love affair with the great outdoors, The Great NZ Outdoor and Leisure Show is one you do not want to miss. You could update your motorhome or caravan, come across the perfect fishing rod or find that SUP you have always wanted to try out.

Visitors can make a weekend of it and stay for free at the onsite rally. All those with a self-contained motorhome or caravan can stay on site at ASB Baypark Arena from midday Friday 18 September to catch up with other motorhome and caravan enthusiasts in a relaxed environment, see the show, and get to know each other. The first 100 rally attendees will receive a goody bag full of discounts, attractions and surprises. 

Event manager Michele Connell says, "The Rally is a fantastic way for those who want to take their time to make purchases to do so, as they can come to the show multiple times, when they stay for free onsite. It’s also a great chance to catch up with travelling friends and enjoy the beautiful Bay of Plenty while they are here. 

"Our target market is active people who enjoy a leisure filled lifestyle, and by combining one of New Zealand’s favourite holiday playgrounds, we feel we have the perfect recipe for a successful show. As a nation with a passion for the great outdoors, what better way to celebrate this exciting industry."

Celebrate all the things Kiwis love to do, and make a weekend of it at The Great NZ Outdoor & Leisure Show, ASB Baypark Arena, Mt Maunganui, 19-20 September.
