Caravanning enthusiasts unfazed by Queensland’s wet weather

June 26, 2017 Exhibitions No Comments Email Email

The 49th annual Caravan, Camping and Touring Supershow rolled into the Brisbane Showgrounds from June 7-12, with more than 40,290 caravanning and camping fans braving a wet weekend to see the latest models, equipment and accessories from exhibitors.

Caravanners and campers travelled from near and far to see a total of 901 caravans, campervans, motorhomes, tent trailers and camper trailers plus a range of gadgets and accessories to make their next road trip more comfortable and enjoyable.

Caravanning Queensland General Manager (Trade), Jason Plant said the wet weather didn’t dampen caravan and camping enthusiasts’ spirits, with many braving torrential rain and dodging showers to visit the annual event which saw sales in excess of $50million.

“Carafans from all over put in the miles to visit this year’s show, including attendees from Cairns, Longreach and Mount Isa, Coffs Harbour and Newcastle and even some flying in from China,” Mr Plant said.

Crowds enjoyed the best of what the industry has to offer with this year’s show displaying the largest number of brand new, never-before-seen caravan and camping models and products as well as plenty of information on caravan parks and tourism destinations all across the country.

Mr Plant said it’s not all about the products on display though, with many visitors taking the opportunity to learn a great deal about travelling holidays through the Supershow’s popular seminar program.

“Travellers were eager to learn about how they can safely enjoy and tow their recreational vehicles, save power or go on off-grid adventures as well as how they can better plan their trips and what they should pack,” he said.

“There was also plenty for the younger generation of caravanners with reptile experiences, Street Science shows and even a visit from Mr Monopoly and the opportunity to play a game of giant Monopoly proving popular amongst the youngsters.

“Another hit of the show was King Brown the camp oven cook who kept his camp fires burning rain and shine, sharing his favourite camp oven recipes with the crowds who also enjoyed snacking on the best bread rolls this side of the caravan, with King Brown baking more than 500 fresh rolls over the six days.”

“There really was something for everyone and we’re already planning for next year’s blockbuster 50th anniversary event.”

The Supershow featured a total of 250 exhibitors displayed 901 caravans, motorhomes, campervans, camper trailer, tent trailers and accessories.
