longest running caravan show celebrates golden anniversary
Have your say
SYDNEY'S longest running caravan and camping show will celebrate its
50th anniversary this month.
The six-day 2018 Caravan Camping Holiday Supershow kicks off on April 24
at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse.
It is the Caravan & Camping Industry Association of NSW's longest running
event and will be celebrating the significant milestone in the growth of
the industry and businesses that underpin its success.
"Caravan and camping has been a favourite way for Aussies to holiday for
decades and Australian businesses have been continually developing and
innovating to meet the needs and desires of a growing market," CCIA chief
executive Lyndel Gray (pictured) said.
"Last year we had more than 145,000 recreational vehicles registered in
NSW and that figure continues to grow as more and more people fall in love
with caravan and camping holidays.
"We have more than 470 member holiday parks in NSW, providing the
facilities and service throughout the state that today's travellers need.
"The Supershow attracts over 55,000 people who recognise it as the best
place to see a full range of caravan and camping products in the
convenience of one venue.
"As part of our celebrations, this year we will also be featuring a
vintage caravan and motorhome display, taking
people on a trip down memory lane and back to the early days of caravan
and camping in Australia."
The first Sydney Caravan Show was held at Concord's Cintra Park and as the
event grew it relocated to the Royal Agricultural Showground at Moore Park
and then the Yennora Woolsheds, before making its permanent home at
Rosehill Gardens Racecourse.
Over 300 exhibitors will showcase thousands of products and latest
innovations while expert exhibitors will offer information and advice on
all things caravanning.
Family entertainment includes face painting, a jumping castle, reptile
display, photo booth, as well as the Champagne Bar with live music, the
Iron Jack Bar and The Smokehouse.
There will also be the Tents-up Feet-up Pamper Lounge with mini-massage or
manicures, daily seminars and much more.
This year's Passport Competition offers a chance to win more than $89,000
in prizes, with the major prizewinner taking home a Rangefinder Nebula
Caravan valued at $73,990 proudly provided by Bailey Caravans.
"The Supershow is a great place to see a full range of caravans,
motorhomes, campervans, slide-ons, camper trailers, tents, caravan and
camping equipment, 4WD and touring accessories, tourism destinations and
caravan and holiday parks and much more," Ms Gray said.
