Penrith Caravan and Camping Expo on this weekend
The Penrith Caravan, Camping & Holiday Expo is on again this weekend at Penrith Panthers.
From 10 to 12 September, record breaking numbers are expected to flock to Penrith Panthers to see over 150 exhibitors displaying the latest caravans, motorhomes, camper trailers, campervans, 5th wheelers, camping equipment and tents, 4WD products and accessories, holiday destinations and tourist park displays.
Barry Baillie CEO of the Caravan and Camping Industry Association believes that the increasing economic stability and the advancing quality of Australia's caravan and camping facilities influenced the record breaking visitor numbers of 88, 237 people to April's Supershow at Rosehill. Mr Baillie trusts that this trend will be replicated at the Penrith show next week.
"Many NSW holiday parks are destinations themselves, with great activities such as jumping pillows and resort style swimming pools and kids clubs during school holidays. Whether you take your own tent or camper trailer or stay in a cabin, holiday parks are great getaways for families."
Caravan and camping tourism is the fastest growing domestic tourism sector in Australia and one that is leading the resurgence for tourism across the nation. 40.9 million visitor nights were spent in caravan or camping accommodation in 2009 this is an increase of 1.3 million nights from 2008.
For those new to the market or those wanting to add to their gear, the Penrith Expo is the ideal event to grab great bargains on everything caravan and camping!
The Penrith Expo is free to the public and offers all the latest and greatest industry products and services at fantastic pre-summer sale prices. Free parking allows guests to have ample time to browse caravans and RVs, tents and many leisure goods.
"Everyone deserves a holiday, and caravan, camping and RV getaways are still the best value holiday option for all Australians, offering something for every budget," said Mr Baillie
"Our website – www.penrith.superhow.com.au – lists all of the Penrith Expo exhibitors for visitors to plan their visit to the show," said Mr Baillie.
The Penrith Expo will be open 9am-5pm daily (closes 4pm Sunday) with free admission and free parking.
