More than 300 exhibitors will be part of the 45th annual Sydney International Boat Show, which will be held Aug. 2-6 at Darling Harbour.

Organized by the Boating Industry Association of New South Wales, the Sydney show is one of the primary events on the Australian harbor city’s annual events calendar.

Planned attractions include the Fashion Extravaganza, presented by Musto, the MyBoatingLife Entertainment Precinct and the Walk of Fame, displaying many historic vessels with a close bond to Sydney Harbour.

Trading hours for the show, which will be held at the Darling Harbour Convention and Exhibition Centre, will be 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.

Walcon Marine will transform Cockle Bay into a marina where the larger vessels on display will make their home during the show. At the marina, the show hours will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

In addition to boats, the show will feature marine engines and electronics, fishing tackle and general boating accessories and equipment.
