80 percent of Aussies looking at a camping holiday

New stats showing most Aussies will be hitting the caravan parks as holiday restrictions ease around the country.

With international travel well and truly off the cards for at least the rest of the year, Aussies will look at hitting the road instead.

According to new research by the Caravan Industry Association of Australia, around 80 percent of the population are looking at a caravan or camping holiday within the next two months.


Keelan Howard from Caravan Industry Association Australia says caravan parks are amongst the safest type of accommodation in the country.

“By design, caravan parks have large open spaces, cabin accommodation and many caravans / RV’s have their own toilet, shower, kitchen and air con systems reducing the need to use shared facilities.

“Caravan parks have also increased strong cleaning and hygiene practices in place”

“People who go camping are happier, more optimistic, less stressed, feel closer to their partner and their children compared to those who don’t” said Mr Howard.

According to Tourism Research Australia, Australians spent a total of 59 million nights caravan and camping last year, making it the most popular accommodation option.
