Event manager Lisa Lynch says there will be a lot to check out.

"This year we've got a tiny home display," Lynch said.

Look out for the Cosy Homes 50 sq m home, which will be auctioned off at 1.45pm on Sunday.

"We have an outdoor landscaped area inside, a taste zone, campervans, boats, everything for builders, renovators.

"Everything you can think of all under the one roof."
