The latest National Visitors Survey by Tourism Research Australia showed caravanning and camping had the largest growth by accommodation type, with growth of seven percent to almost 45 million nights in 2014. This was on the back of a strong drive market which also grew seven percent to 58 million trips.
“The strength of the caravanning and camping industry in Australia is undeniable,” said Lamont.
“Caravanning and camping provides the perfect backdrop for Australians to rediscover some of the great travel destinations in the world right here in our own backyard.”
“The ability to reconnect with nature, spend quality time with family, and to escape the routine of an increasingly hectic lifestyle are just some of the attractions driving the current success of the industry,” Lamont said.
