MEGA FISHING TANK
Returning to this year’s Rosehill Trailer Boat Show is Australia’s largest fishing demonstration tank. At 21 metres long, the glass tank holds 14,500 litres of water with live fish, presenting an educational and entertaining fishing experience at the show. Fishing experts use the tank to demonstrate how various lures work to attract different types of fish, as you actually see the fish chase and respond to the lures. Demonstrations take place at various times across the show.
NSW Roads and Maritime Services will be present to answer all your licensing queries. Pick up a boating handbook to prepare for your licence test.
