Regional Visitor Economies

Our Focus

Encouraging the caravanning & camping ‘community’ to play their role in revitalising regional Australia & championing their contribution to regional economies & the nation


14M Trips & 54M Nights

Caravan and camping generates more than holiday nights than any other type of accommodation in Australia. 90% of nights spent caravan and camping is in regional Australia


$10B Annually

Largely focused in regional Australia, where visitor expenditure in 2500 caravan parks supports myriads of additional businesses external to the immediate caravan industry.

Caravan Parks

Developing Communities

Caravan parks are the organs of regional tourism. Each dollar of caravan park revenue generates $1.38 of economic activity in the local community, stimulating job creation & business opportunities.
