Melbourne Leisurefest

Showcasing what the industry has to offer

Enhancing the visitor experience

Brand new layout for Melbourne Leisurefest

Have your say

ORGANISERS of the mammoth Melbourne Leisurefest have been busy at the drawing board to ensure visitors see more.

Caravan Industry Association Victoria chief executive Rob Lucas said improvements at Sandown Racecourse would mean a brand new layout at next month's show.

Show manager Scott Leahy had created a better flow throughout the venue which would "enhance the visitor experience".

"The new layout will mean an even better opportunity for visitors to see even more," Mr Lucas explained.

The Melbourne Leisurefest, from October 6 to 9, will showcase thousands of the latest RV, camping, 4WD and outdoor products and accessories from Australia's leading manufacturers.

Mr Lucas said there had never been a better time to get out and experience what Australia had to offer.

"Our industry is producing fantastic products, and Melbourne Leisurefest is the first stop for those wanting to get out and experience this amazing country."

Domestic overnight expenditure has increased 4.7 percent nationally, meaning more Australians were choosing to visit their own backyard for holidays.

Mr Lucas encouraged more Victorians to get out and see what their very own state had to offer.

"Victoria is also becoming a holiday hotspot for Victorians, with so many incredible destinations at your fingertips less than three hours from the city," he said.

"With destinations such as the Great Ocean Road, the Grampians, Phillip Island and so many others, Victorians are spoiled for choice when it comes to holidaying in their own state."

The leisurefest will feature live music, cooking demonstrations and seminars on the centre stage. Radio station 3AW will also return to broadcast live.

There will be a variety of fun activities to keep children happy, including a climbing wall and the Caravanning Explorersí Club!

The towing track will also return with AL-KO's ESC (electronic stability control) demonstrations.
