20 October 2018
Did you know that you probably have about five grands worth of unwanted stuff in your home that you could
The World's Biggest Car Boot Sale is a safe and easy place to sell your collectables, antiques, original, vintage, second hand and new items.
The World’s Biggest Car Boot Sale is a fundraising event organised by Hunter Life Education and is a twice-annual event, taking place in May and October each year.
The World's Biggest Car Boot Sale is a safe and secure event to sell new or unwanted items. Think of it like a BIG garage sale and market. With around 300 sites available, previous years have been a sell out, filling the Newcastle Entertainment Centre with bargains and treasures galore. This event is full of all things you have come to expect - collectible, antique, original, vintage, second hand and new. This event provides a fantastic family experience of a community market with shopping, food and education, and features appearances by Healthy Harold and Big Dog - a great day out for the whole family!
Our focus on sustainability, fighting the war on waste and our planet's future! The "Sustainability Stage - Preloved to Reloved" will again play host to some presenters showcasing their initiatives for fighting the war on waste and discussing simple ways you can get on board too. Download the Presentation Schedule. The stage is brought to you this event by Newcastle Coal Infrastructure Group (NCIG) through their Community Support Program.
