Lismore 4WD show’s variety is a big drawcard

NEW South Wales biggest regional show has grown significantly this year and is expected to raise over $100,000 for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.

The Lismore 4WD, Caravan, Camping and Marine Show now has 230 exhibitors, which is about 12% up on last year, according to event manager Howard Atkinson.

He described the " big day out for families" as a boon for the Lismore economy that will see millions of dollars roll into the region.

"It's going to be fantastic. This is a quality show and is always rated as one of the premium shows in NSW," Mr Atkinson, who founded the show 17 years ago, said.

"There's so many specialty exhibitions and something here for everyone."

Mr Atkinson expected the motorbike stunt show featuring Jack Fields would be popular, as well as the Yamaha Fishing Tank, where keen anglers can try their luck.

He said caravan and camper trailer displays would likely attract the most interest, with "people coming from across the country" to see the largest display in Australia outside of Brisbane.

But the sheer variety of exhibits, including reflexology, face painting and Thermomix displays, will likely keep every member of the family happy.

The show will be held at Lismore Showgrounds, from tomorrow until Sunday.
