The GoSee pictures with this story taken at the Queensland Caravan Camping Show tell a diverse growth story for the caravan and camping industry.
The Queensland Caravan Camping Show provides complimentary train travel on the loop service from Fortitude Valley, Central station and Roma St Station to RNA Showgrounds "Exhibition Station" and return.
This eco-responsible route to the show is comfortable, convenient and virtually allows access right to the entrance gate. The service runs daily from 9am to 6.15 pm each day of the show until June 15th.
The main prize for the show this year offers lucky visitors the chance to win a Waeco Coolfreeze CF80 Freezer, Fridge & Dairy valued at $1,599.
Competition "passport to Freedom" requires showgoers to have their entry form punched at five locations throughout the exhibition and then be placed in the entry box at the entry/exit gates.
