The 3 day event is being held at Aquis Park, situated at the Gold Coast Turf Club from Friday 27th July to Sunday 29th July 2018, doors open from 8.30am to 4pm each day and tickets are an affordable $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and children 16 and under are free with an adult ticket with free return passes for multiple day entry.
This year, the event is expected to be bigger than ever with over 160 local, regional and national exhibitors showing off their impressive displays of latest caravans, camper trailers, camping gear, vehicles and a huge range of accessories. In the Home and Lifestyle section, you'll find many ideas to make your house a home with spas, saunas, luxury beds and the newest cooking technology to turn anyone into the next Masterchef contestant!
Over 13,000 people attended last year's event, and there will be no shortage of things to do this year to keep everyone entertained, both young and not so young. There will be several daily cooking demonstrations with Peter Wolfe from Cedar Creek Bush Foods known for his bush tucker using the finest local seasonal ingredients, Luke's Reptile Kingdom displaying a magnificent venomous snake who loves cuddles, but Luke also gives a talk about how to deal with snake bites and keeping them away from your property, as well as free train rides through the Expo and free kids rides and jumping castles.
The Expo also has a Holiday & Tourism Showcase where holiday parks and accommodation providers will be on hand to give you ideas about your next ideal holiday, from 5-star hotels to nights out in a swag under the stars.
There is also a heap of prizes to be won so if you are feeling lucky, you've got some pretty good odds to pick yourself up a little (or big) treat. Prizes include a $52,000 Billabong Caravan, 1 of 3 Westinghouse Generators, a glamping holiday from Habitat Noosa, a $500 holiday to Clarence Coast Holiday Parks, 1 of 5 $100 Family Parks Holiday vouchers and a 3 night cabin stay with Discover South Burnett, all for just turning up and filling in an entry coupon!
Caravan & Camping Expo's are a great opportunity to see such a range of different products and ideas altogether in one place. They are often where to find the best deals as one-off show specials, have the most expert knowledge on hand, be able to talk to others who may be interested in the same products or services, and just be able to wander freely in your own time.
