Caravan Camping Lifestyle Expo rolls into Newcastle


Planning a camping or caravanning holiday soon – or in the near future?

If the answer is “yes”, then make sure you venture to the much-anticipated Newcastle Caravan Camping Lifestyle Expo this weekend.

Taking place at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre and Showground from Friday 4 February to Sunday 6 February, the event will provide an extensive display of products including the latest caravans, motorhomes, campervans, camper trailers, tents, camping equipment, 4WD accessories, holiday parks and more.

And, the organisers, Caravan & Camping Industry Association (CCIA NSW), are keen to see the crowds roll in again.

“Australia’s love of travel and the great outdoors has not dampened over the past two years, with a huge leap in the number of people taking caravan and camping holidays as COVID-19 restrictions ease,” CEO Lyndel Gray said.

“Caravan and camping holidays are uniquely enticing as they connect travellers to nature, giving them access to some of the most beautiful locations NSW has to offer.

“Plus, people just love being outdoors and camping under the stars.

“Last year visitors took four million overnight caravan or camping trips in NSW, which was a 17% increase on the previous 12 months when COVID-19 lockdowns took a significant toll. 

“Caravan and camping have always been hugely popular but now, as people seek confidence in their holiday plans, these kinds of holidays are proving to be even more attractive.”

Ms Gray said the beauty of the Newcastle Expo was it provided a one-stop-shop where people could see some of the latest and best that the industry had to offer.

“They can also get inspiration for new holiday destinations across NSW,” she explained.

“This year there will be a guest appearance on Friday and Saturday by publisher and TV personality Pat Callinan, who is one of Australia’s best-loved 4×4, RV and camping experts.”

Tickets – $16 (adults), $12 (concession) and children 16 and under free when accompanied by a paying adult – are only available online, ensuring visitors are able to enter the venue seamlessly and without waiting in lines. 

“We’re providing an event in accordance with NSW Health’s COVID-safe guidelines,” Ms Gray said.

“It’s a top priority for the association and venue.

“Important COVID-safe reminders about physical distancing and hygiene will be available on the website.

“Face masks are mandatory when indoors and inside RVs, and highly-recommended elsewhere when at the Expo.”
