A run down on events in Western Australia
Caravan and camping expos and shows are an excellent way to see the latest releases, make comparisons of your short list or wish list, update your knowledge base, share tips and hints with the experts and have a great day’s outing for the entire family.
For West Australians, the highlight of the expo calendar is the annual RAC Perth Caravan & Camping Show so mark the date in your diary now – Wednesday 16th March to Sunday 20th of March 2016 at Claremont Showgrounds.
Something for All Outdoor Enthusiasts
This show is massive and caters for caravans, campers, RVs and all outdoor enthusiasts in the one show. With 48,000 visitors to the 2015 show – that’s proof that this show is one not to be missed.
Organisers are expecting over 450 caravans to be displayed at the 2016 show, nearly 150 campers and as a result of feedback from 2015 show visitors, the display of tents is being expanded for 2016.
While many will head to the show to inspect caravans and other vehicles for potential purchase, there are plenty of other attractions to cater for everyone.
Demonstrations of equipment are always popular as are the cooking demos with plenty of recipe ideas to satisfy your appetite, quickly and easily while away on a caravan or camping holiday.
An informative seminar programme is always a highlight of the Perth Show and you would be advised to get your tickets early so as not to miss out on your choice.
Previous Shows have included sensational clinics and demonstrations on driver safety and tips on towing and very helpful demos on topics such as getting your vehicle out when bogged.
The Perth show is designed for the whole family with children under 16 admitted free when accompanied by an adult and plenty of activities to keep them entertained. Rock climbing, face painting are just some of the previous year’s entertainment plus great competitions in putting up tents with sensational prizes to be won.
The show website is extremely informative, covering all the details you require to get yourself there and what to do when you get there.
You can purchase tickets online and Transperth offers travel deals for those travelling by train.
For those travelling by car, off-site parking is available at Graylands Hospital with a free shuttle bus service to get you to the show.
So keep an eye on the website www.caravanandcampingshow.com.au for more details as they are released.
