The Train and Hobby Show at Sandown is in its 15th year in Victoria and has grown to be one of the largest hobby shows in Australia. The show is spread over 2 levels and heaps of outdoor entertainment to see. This is why thousands of people attend every year to see the biggest and the best of what each hobby has to offer.

2016 saw the introduction of radio controlled models with RC Trucks and RC Tanks on display. 2019 will see even more radio controlled models including a radio controlled model boats, radio control drone racing art & craft and Ham Radio. There is plenty to do and see: train rides, LEGO, radio controlled car and plane races, interactive displays, club information stands and colouring in pages just to name a few.

With so much to see and do, there is a whole day of family fun at a price that even the most budget conscious families can afford.
