Big chance for a bargain
Lots to see at the Caravan and Camping Show
Queenslanders are into caravanning and camping with the highest percentage of caravan registrations for any state. In fact the number of registrations for caravans and campers has gone up fifteen percent over the last few years. It's only to be expected considering our sunny climate and the virtually endless range of campgrounds, national parks and lazy beachside destinations available around the state.
Queensland's largest caravan and camping show runs from 8-13 June at the Brisbane Showgrounds, with over 250 exhibitors displaying all the latest in caravans, motorhomes, campervans, tent trailers, slide-ons and camping accessories.
Dozens of brand new models will be launched at the show. Popular seminars covering towing, solar, satellite communication, cooking demonstrations from the Cast Iron Boys and a kids zone with free activities will keep the whole family entertained. A range of food trucks will be stationed around the grounds as well.
Free train travel from anywhere in the Queensland Rail, Citytrain network; from as far north as Gympie, to as far south as the Gold Coast and west to Ipswich, comes with your ticket. There are also plenty of parking options with over 2,000 carparks just a short walk from the Brisbane Showgrounds.
One lucky visitor will also win an Australian-built Bailey Rangefinder Nebula caravan valued at $69,990.
Tickets are on sale now at queenslandcaravanshows.com.au, at $15 for concession card holders, and $20 for adults. School aged children are free with a paying adult.
Queensland Caravan and Camping Show Manager, Jason Plant said, "Caravanning offers freedom to explore the great outdoors at an affordable price, with one investment offering years of enjoyment and memories."
"As Queensland's largest caravanning and camping show, there is no better place to arm yourself with information, compare different models and pickup a bargain at the same time."
