The Victorian Caravan, Camping & Touring Supershow has been inspiring us for 65 to get out and enjoy the great outdoors and it's on again from Wednesday 20 February to Monday 25 February 2019.

Perfect for both experienced travellers and those planning their first big adventure, there will be a huge range of products and information available. That's what makes this the biggest caravan, camping and touring show in Victoria.

The show will feature hundreds of exhibitors displaying the latest models and products in all things outdoors, with plenty of bargains to be found. Take a peek inside the latest caravans, motorhomes, campervans, camper trailers, off-road recreational vehicles and 4 wheel drives. Click here for more info on the exhibitors at this year's show.

This year, there are three new areas providing information and fun for everyone:

The new Camp Ground area is perfect to listen to talks from industry experts and join in with interactive demonstrations. Just imagine you're sitting around the campfire sharing stories and knowledge with friends and family and you get the idea. With a food and drink area, you'll find it hard to move away.

Marshmallows anyone?

Especially for our four-legged friends (the show is dog-friendly), head over to Paw Patch and listen to talks on travelling with pets. Celebrity vet Dr Katrina Warren will be on hand providing plenty of tips for taking your fur-babies on the road with you. Lara Shannon from Pooches at Play will also be at the show, discussing dog behaviour issues and will happily answer any questions you might have to ensure a smooth family holiday.

The final all-new area is the AL-KO Innovation Hub. Stop and be the first to see brand new products and be amazed at the future of recreational travel.

For the kids, the BMPRO Kids Zone will keep them entertained with free rides, games, movies, a colouring competition and face painting.

Fun for the whole family

Up on the entertainment stage, there will be a great line-up of entertainers, celebrity appearances, information and educational sessions, children's entertainment and even cooking demonstrations.

The much-loved vintage van displays will have you reminiscing about bygone days and marvelling at just how much caravans have developed and changed.

Scared of snakes and anything else that slithers? Reptile specialist Allan Burnett and his team from Reptile Awareness Displays of Australia, will provide you with sensible advice on snake awareness and plenty of information on what to do if you come across reptiles in the wild. You'll be able to get up close and personal with snakes and other reptiles and you might find that they are not so scary after all. Reptile shows will be running throughout the day.
