Tickets are now on sale for the 2019 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show (SCIBS), with a number of ticket and transport options available including free Park ‘n’ Ride from Warner Bros’ Movie World.

The Southern hemisphere’s premier marine event will be held from May 23-26 and will feature more than 300 exhibitors showcasing the industry’s latest vessels and innovations.

Tickets can be pre-purchased online at a discounted rate, with a one-day pass selling for $20 compared to $25 at the gate. Children under 15 years will be admitted free.

A partnership with RACQ, Queensland’s largest automotive club, means more than 7.8 million auto club members across the country can also purchase 2-for-1 tickets* online through the RACQ website prior to the event kicking off.

SCIBS General Manager Johan Hasser said his team was committed to making it as simple as possible for water-loving individuals and families to experience the event.

“Be it keeping entry prices to a minimum or offering convenient ways for people to visit SCIBS, we go to great lengths to ensure everyone can attend this world-class event,” he said.

“Our free Park ‘n’ Ride service from Warner Bros’ Movie World offers easy parking and air-conditioned shuttle buses  making it a popular, stress-free mode of transport.

“With children under 15 years receiving free entry, families who pre-purchase their tickets online can enjoy a full day at SCIBS – including free Park ‘n’ Ride – for only $25 if they are RACQ members or $40 if not.”

Other transport options for SCIBS include:

  • On-site parking, which is available to pre-purchase online
  • Boat owners dropping anchor in the Coomera River and grabbing a ride with Volunteer Marine Rescue for a gold coin donation
  • Helicopter transfers from Marina Mirage from Gold Coast Helitours ($100 one-way; $180 return)

With more than 45,000 people expected to attend the event, SCIBS 2019 will offer visitors the chance to indulge in their boating dreams at a spectacular waterfront location across four days.

It will also offer something for everyone, with live music, delicious food, cool bars and street entertainers combining with a nonstop program of family entertainment. The interactive Kids’ Zone is always a hit with the littlies, while there will be plenty of hands-on activities such as fishing masterclasses, educational boating workshops and cooking demonstrations to keep parents entertained.
