Discover the new Caravan Camping Lifestyle Expo @ Sydney Olympic Park

By Caravan and Camping Industry Association NSW, 6 October, 2017


This November, Sydney Showground at Sydney Olympic Park will play host to an exciting new showcase of the latest recreation and 4WD vehicles, caravans , camper-trailers,  camping products, holiday park displays, and everything you’ll need for your next adventure

“This will be a completely new Expo experience unlike anything we’ve staged before, in a fantastic, easy to access exhibition facility at the Sydney Olympic Park precinct,” Caravan & Camping Industry Association (NSW) CEO, Lyndel Gray said.

The Caravan Camping Lifestyle Expo will have over 150 exhibitors and hundreds of brands on display, making it the perfect place to check out why caravan and camping is Australia’s favourite way to holiday.

Visitors to the Expo will be able to explore some of the most extensively appointed caravans, camper-trailers and motorhomes on the market.  These homes-away-from-home offer features such as bathrooms, air con, kitchens, washing machines, TVs, microwaves, outdoor BBQs – and so much more. And there will be $5,000 in cash given away to one lucky winner each day of the Expo.

If you’ve never taken a look inside today’s modern RVs, this is your chance, and we guarantee you’ll be impressed. It’s the perfect opportunity to explore all the options, with the added convenience of them being all in one place.

“People can also come along and find out how to rent a motorhome or campervan for the road trip they have always dreamed about, sample some of the best food and wine from NSW, find out about travelling with pets and finding the perfect place to stay with dog friendly facilities, or find the perfect holiday park with luxury cabins and glamping tents.

“The Expo is being held at a great time of year to buy new equipment or update your caravan and camping gear to be ready for the summer holidays.”

Along with an amazing range of motorhomes, campervans, caravans, slide-ons and camper-trailers on display in the largest undercover exhibition of its kind in NSW, there are many other exciting things to do and see at the Caravan Camping Lifestyle Expo including:
