Okay, you guys really don’t need any further excuses to get down to the Adelaide Showgrounds for the 4WD & Adventure Show this weekend, what with more stalls, entertainment and bargains than you can find anywhere else, do you?

2017 marks a huge year for the 4WD & Adventure shows, which are celebrating 25 years of bringing the best products in the industry, famous faces and heaps of attractions right to major metropolitan centres – and judging from the Sydney show that’s just gone, Adelaide is going to be massive this year.
Along with the usual array of exhibitors and great show-specials on more products than you can poke a stick at, joining the list of off-road celebrities (including Grant and Linda from RV Daily who will be wandering around the place) is none other than the legendary Mal Leyland.
Mal is a true blue Aussie Icon, who, along with his brother Mike, pioneered their way through the bush in an old Land Rover back in the 60s and 70s with their show “The Leyland Brothers” – if you haven’t heard of them, ask your parents, just be prepared for them to sing the theme song from the show to you in full…
Mal will be introducing the show theme of Game Changers – people and products who have changed the way we head off-road, and he’s certainly one of the innovators. Sure, you can see any number of adventurers on TV and YouTube these days, but it all started with Mal tackling 2300km of the Darling River in a tinny back in 1963. Now that’s what i call an adventure.
So come on down to the Adelaide Showground this weekend, and make sure you stop by the Toyo Tires stand and check out Unsealed 4X4’s Project Rusty while you’re there (looking pretty tidy these days too!). Gates open at 9AM and kids under 16 get in free. Oh, and keep an eye out for the editor of Pat Callinan’s 4X4 Adventures, Scotty Mason, who will be hanging around all weekend as well and loves having a chat with the readers.
