Have your say

CARAVAN and camping holidays in New South Wales continue to grow in popularity, according to Tourism Research Australia's latest figures.

They continue to spearhead the state's domestic visitor night growth, with almost 16.9 million nights spent caravanning and camping in the past year.

This was a 26 percent increase in the number of holiday nights taken in the year ending September 2016, according to figures recently released by Tourism Research Australia.

"These are amazing figures which show how Australians' love of a caravan or camping holiday continues its rapid rise," the state's Caravan and Camping Industry Association chief executive, Lyndel Gray, said.

"These growth figures reflect the positive impact of a new TV campaign which was run by CCIA NSW during the July/August period.

"The ads, which aired statewide, inspired people to consider a caravan and camping holiday and spend quality time with family and friends in amazing NSW locations."

She said the overall domestic results indicated that couples and families were increasingly engaging with caravan and camping holidays, and more people were travelling with children.

"This reflects what our members are also seeing in their parks," Ms Gray explained.

"Many of our parks offer fantastic family friendly holiday options with facilities like water slides, play areas and pools, tennis courts, kayak, canoe and bike hire, entertainment and some even have kids clubs.

"The great thing about holiday parks in NSW is that they offer something for everyone and every style of traveller.

"You can pitch a tent, drive up with your caravan, motorhome or camper trailer or stay in a luxury cabin or safari tent with all the comforts of home in amazing locations throughout the state.

"NSW offers some of the best caravan and camping holidays possible and we are looking forward to welcoming even more people to our parks in the coming year."
