Boats may well be the star attractions when the doors open at Darling Harbour but there's far more to see and do apart from inspecting the latest and greatest in boating. The six cavernous halls of the Darling Harbour Exhibition Centre and the floating marina on the waters of adjoining Cockle Bay will be packed to the limit with every style of craft imaginable, together with an astonishing array of engines, marine electronics, fishing tackle, scuba and water ski equipment, nautical clothing and general boating accessories. Entertainment takes place everyday with daily fashion parades, cooking classes, presentations on the Better Boating Stage and Yamaha Fishing Clinic. Don't miss the Boat Building Competition (staged on the Saturday). From canoes and kayaks to multi-million dollar megayachts, the Boat Show has something for everyone. 31st July-5th August 2008.
