A run down on events in Queensland
Nothing beats visiting an expo or show to check out the latest model releases, updates, accessories in person and find everything you need for your caravan and camping adventures.
For Queenslanders, there is a number of shows and events held annually which are definitely worth diarising right now.
Caravanning Queensland, the industry body which brings together both the Caravan Trade and Industries Association of Queensland and the Caravan Parks Association of Queensland, organises a number of excellent events each year.
Queensland Caravan, Camping & Touring Supershow
The Supershow is an annual event which has been running for nearly 50 years and this year attracted over 55,000 visitors to see the products and information presented by hundreds of exhibitors.
The show is held in June each year at the Brisbane Showgrounds and includes displays, information and demos covering caravans, campervans and motorhomes, camper trailers, off road vehicles, camping equipment and accessories as well as a wealth of information on tourism and holiday destinations not just in the sunshine state but throughout Australia.
The 2016 Supershow is scheduled for 8-14 June and information on getting there, ticketing and exhibitors can be sourced at www.caravanqld.com.au
Pre-Christmas Caravan & Camping Expo
In addition to the June Supershow, Caravanning Queensland also hold the annual Pre-Christmas Expo later in the year.
The event is strategically scheduled to allow manufacturers and dealers to clear stock before the new year and provide customers with a great opportunity to gear up for the holiday season.
In 2015, over 100 exhibitors presented and displayed both clearance and sale stock as well as showed upcoming 2016 models.
This is a ‘must attend’ event for all those interested in caravans and camping.
The 2016 event is scheduled for 27-30 October 2016 and you can source more details at www.caravanqld.com.au
Gold Coast Events
For those further down the coast, the Caravanning Queensland also notes a possible Gold Coast Caravan and Camping Expo to be held in March 2016. Check in at the website for further updates on this event. www.caravanqld.com.au
Explore Australia Expo
In 2015 a new expo arrived on the scene – Explore Australia Expo. Held in March at the Manly Boat Harbour in Queensland this exciting show outgrew the venue in its first year. Such was its popularity.
The Explore Australia Expo is billed as an outdoor leisure exhibition which brings together the elite of the outdoor industries and overlapping communities. The exhibition covers premium 4WD, camping, fishing and outdoor adventures with exhibitors, displays and other happenings.
The next Expo will be held 2-4 September 2016 at the much larger venue of Doomben Racecourse in Brisbane.
