Outdoor adventure enthusiasts across the region flocked to Wodonga Racecourse at the weekend to check out the Albury-Wodonga Pop-Up Outdoor Adventure Expo held on Saturday 11 March.
Initially the expo was to be held in Henty before the liquidation of Explore Australia, which was supposed to host the event, but the pop-up alternative still attracted a crowd.
Upon the unfortunate news that the Henty 4WD and Outdoor Adventure Expo would not be running, the Border community rallied together to provide a venue for more than 100 affected exhibitors who travelled from as far as Bathurst, Yarrawonga, Goorambat and Wagga Wagga.
The pop-up expo provided a space for the exhibitors to still be able to sell their products and promote their brands and services.
The Border community offered to help the exhibitors recover some of their losses through donating labour, products and services to make the event come together at Wodonga.
These donations included administration, security, waste management, traffic signage, food vouchers, entertainment and first aid, which was provided by St John NSW.
There was a diverse range of four-wheel driving, camping, fishing, boating, and outdoor and leisure brands in the one location.
This included jet-skis, can-am ATV and side-by-sides, enduro and trail motorbikes, 4WD utes, spas, 4WD accessories, rooftop tents and camper trailers, light bars, bull bars and caravan accessories just to name a few.
Albury Wodonga News Weekly photographer Adam Wilson attended the outdoor adventure expo to capture some of the action.
