Model Railway Exhibitions, Displays, Expos, Open Days, Sale Days, Conventions etc.

Here is an incomplete list of model railway exhibitions, displays and expos that we know about around Australia for 2018.

Attending any of these exhibitions will always give you plenty of inspiration and ideas to incorporate into your modelling.

Attending these exhibitions will also give you the chance to snap up a bargain from a trader’s stand or grab the latest release from the manufacturers or hobby shops that might attend.
