Your visit to the Hawkesbury Model & Hobby Show could win you another day out. Each day one lucky visitor will win a family pass to the Sydney Tramway Museum. All you need to do is tell us what you think of our show.
When you arrive you will be given a form, simply fill it in and leave it in the special Red Wheelie at the Information Stand and you could be the lucky winner.
We would like to thank the Sydney Tramway Museum for their support.
There is a gallery of images taken at all of our previous shows that show the range of exhibits you can expect to see each year. Of course each year there are different exhibits but there is always something for everyone.
View the gallery here.

Our event is often donated various items that may interest collectors and modellers. We find new homes for them and doing so add to our coffers and ultimately to the donations we make to worthy causes.
Among the items donated this year is a 1960’s era Marklin model railway. It is complete and has been test run. It comes with rolling stock, power pack etc. With a bit of TLC it should give hours of enjoyment for many years.
We are offering this layout as a silent auction at our show. You can make a bid on it there. There are also some separate lots of other trains and planes.
See this gallery for some shots of the layout. If you would like some more information on it including a full list of items fill in the confidential form below.
The exhibitor page has been updated and the hall and showground plans are now available. Look under exhibitors and 2014 exhibitors to see them.
The Exhibitor list shows the stand number for stands in the hall. If there is no number shown the exhibitor is in the grounds or under the awning on the north side of the hall.
The hall, the outside sheds and the awning are all fully booked.
The list of exhibitors was added to the site some time ago. It includes all the exhibitors who have booked in at this stage.
There are several new exhibitors this year as well as some old favourites returning. Take a look at the list to see the wide variety of exhibits.
The list is updated regularly and the hall plan will be added when it is finalised.
The 2014 Exhibitor List.
Visitors to our show no doubt enjoy all the displays but few would have any idea of the effort the exhibitors put in to get their displays ready for the show. The following are some progress photos of just one display, Lego City.
Gotta start somewhere
This is the first time Lego City has been exhibited and the first time Hawkesbury Model & Hobby Show has had a Lego display. Another great reason to visit this year’s event.
Work in progress as Lego City grows.
There are a couple more images on our gallery.
There is only a few days left to apply to exhibit at this year’s Hawkesbury Model & Hobby Show. Applications will close at the end of the month. After that date any applications received won’t be considered unless a space becomes available. The hall is around 90% full now so there is not much space left.
There is still plenty of room in the grounds for outdoor exhibits to join the vehicles, rides and machinery already booked in.
A list of the exhibits for 2014 will be added to the site very soon. There are several new displays this year.
If you would like to be part of the 2014 event please contact us now.
Each year the profits from our event are donated back to the community. We have assisted a variety of causes over the last few years by donating the grand total of $18,895 so far. This year our major recipient will be Riding for the Disabled Tall Timber Centre. RDA provides horse riding and associated activities for people with disabilities, follow the link for more information.
As well as RDA we will be supporting CF NSW, St John Ambulance Hawkesbury and Henry Doubleday Research Association.
