IF YOU'RE looking to renovate your home or thinking of packing up and going away on a camping trip or caravan expedition, the Wide Bay and Fraser Coast Home Show and Caravan, Camping, 4x4 and Fishing Expo will have a range of choices for you.

The expo, which starts on Friday at the Maryborough showgrounds, enters its eighth year and will continue during the weekend, ending on Sunday at 4pm.

Event director Bob Carroll said there was plenty to see and do at the event.

"This is the biggest event we've had, with 165 exhibitors," Mr Carroll said.

"Over the recent years we have seen a big development in the leisure side of things. People are very interested in caravans, camper trailers, motorhomes, outdoor adventures and holidays.

"And in the last two years we have seen an improvement in the number of products available for the homes, so if people are thinking about building or renovating in time for summer, this will be a good time to be looking at what the expo has to offer.

"If you've got any interest at all in camping, caravanning and motorhomes, we've got probably the biggest range of displays that they will see outside of Brisbane."

There are also prizes available at the expo including a Hawaiian holiday for two, $5000 in prizes from leading brands such as Shimano, Mako Eyewear, Gamakatsu and Lowrance, plus an Elite-4 fish-finder/chart-plotter from the Lowrance Elite Series.

While the adults explore and look at the exhibitions, the kids can ride on the jumping castle, eat, drink and be merry.
