The Penrith Caravan, Camping & Holiday Expo is on again this weekend at Penrith Panthers. The Penrith Expo opens 9am-5pm daily (closes 4pm Sunday) with free admission and free parking.
From Friday 10 to Sunday 12 September 150 exhibitors display the latest caravans, motorhomes, camper trailers, campervans, 5th wheelers, camping equipment and tents, 4WD products and accessories, holiday destinations and tourist park displays.
Barry Baillie, CEO of the Caravan and Camping Industry Association NSW, believes that the increasing economic stability and the advancing quality of Australias caravan and camping facilities influenced the record breaking visitor numbers of 88,237 people to Aprils Supershow at Rosehill.
Many NSW holiday parks are destinations themselves, with great activities such as jumping pillows and resort style swimming pools and kids clubs during school holidays. Whether you take your own tent or camper trailer or stay in a cabin, holiday parks are great getaways for families, he said today.
Caravan and camping tourism is the fastest growing domestic tourism sector in Australia and one that is leading the resurgence for tourism across the nation. 40.9 million visitor nights were spent in caravan or camping accommodation in 2009, an increase of 1.3 million nights from 2008.
