Camping is our happy place

The Caravan Industry Association of Australia has released data showing that caravan and camping holidays are the preferred choice for Australians, offering customer-focused products and great value. In the first quarter of the year, there was a significant surge in travel numbers, with 4.5 million trips (up 24%) and 18 million nights (up 22%) spent caravanning and camping across the country.

These figures far surpass the pre-COVID numbers of 14 million trips and 59 million nights in 2019. The industry’s growth provides vital support to regional and rural economies, with 90% of trips taken in these areas.
