Upcoming caravan shows around Australia
Australia is the perfect country for caravan holidays. With its highways stretching off into the distance and diverse landscape, there's always something new to discover.
There's also a whole community of caravan enthusiasts out there to meet. Whether you've just secured caravan finance and want to find the best gadgets for your first trip or still aren't sure what you should buy, caravan shows are the best way to introduce yourself to like-minded people.
Here are three events to put on the calendar if you want to keep up with the industry.
The Gippsland Great Outdoor Expo
Taking place from November 13 to 15, The Gippsland Great Outdoor Expo promises to be an event worth keeping your calendars clear for. Gippsland is only about 2 hours out of Melbourne, making it the perfect centre for the Victoria's camping faithful to gather.
The expo will cater to more than just the camping side of things, and will include ideas for outdoor activities as well. Learn about everything you need for your camping holiday, from catching fish to cooking outdoors.
Leisurefest - Bendigo
Leisurefest hits Bendigo just a week after The Gippsland Great Outdoor Expo, so eager caravanners in Victoria can wait around and take in the sights and sounds of both. The show is promising to have the latest caravans and off road vehicles as well as all-new camping equipment.
There will also be plenty of activities to keep the kids entertained, so you can browse for your dream camper in peace.
Coffs Coast 4WD, Caravan & Camping Show
If you're looking for a new caravan and you're on the Central Coast, ensure you have a spare day between September 25 and 27. After all, the only way to find out if a new camper is right for you is to try it out in person.
The exhibition has averaged over 9000 visitors per event for the eleven years it has been held, so make sure you get in early.
