As the popularity of domestic holidays continues to increase, it has never been a better time to get involved in caravan and camping holidays, which continue to be the best value for money getaways.
Caravan and camping tourism has been the fastest growing domestic tourism sector in Australia for over ten years.
Barry Baillie, CEO of the Caravan and Camping Industry Association of NSW (CCIA), says that caravan and camping holidays have been a crucial part in the resurgence of domestic tourism.
"Touring holidays give you the flexibility to travel whenever and wherever you want whilst still having all the comforts of home. Many contemporary caravans and motorhomes include modern conveniences such as showers and toilets, entertainment systems and large dining and sleeping areas," said Mr Baillie.
“The Penrith Expo has over 150 caravan, RV, camping and holiday destination stands to browse and find great pre-summer sale bargains, making it the ideal occasion for Australian families to start thinking about their next holiday.”
“More Australian’s are choosing to holiday within Australia than ever before. Easily accessible and comparable travel information, increasing economic stability and the advancing quality of Australian caravan and camping facilities saw 40.9 million visitor nights spent in caravan or camping accommodation in 2009. This is an increase of 1.3 million nights from 2008.”
This trend was supported by an outstanding 13% increase in visitor numbers to this years Caravan and Camping Supershow in April! This result implies that record breaking numbers will pass through the gates at the Penrith Caravan, Camping and Holiday Expo today and throughout the weekend.
The Penrith Expo will be open 9am-5pm daily (closes 4pm Sunday) with FREE admission and free parking.
