Griffith (Australia) will host a new caravan exhibition for the first time.

The Caravan Lifestyle and Leisure Roadshow will happen from April 29 until May 1 at the Griffith Showground, celebrating the caravan industry and showcasing various campers, vans, and other recreational vehicles and accessories needed for the nomadic lifestyle.

The exhibition takes place after the boom in the caravan industry with people purchasing motorhomes and going on cross-country adventures instead of going abroad, according to a report.

The roadshow’s spokesperson Peter Rhodes explained the boom in the caravan industry.

“This comes from a couple of factors – The first is the change in the leisure dollar … People want to explore their own backyard, get out of the cities with their families, and see Australia,” he said.

Rhodes also said that free camping is another major reason why people turn to caravanning and camping since it is more affordable.

“Many smaller towns are now bypassed by freeways and highways, and many caravan parks are becoming extremely expensive, so in an effort to help both the traveler and struggling towns, many councils are opening up parkland or sports grounds,” he said.

Rhodes said the recent increase of the “Grey Nomads” had boosted the appeal of caravans and RVs.

The exhibition includes various entertainment, food, and non-alcoholic drinks for attendees. The “Snake Man” will also make a show, bringing his taipan and other reptiles to entertain the crowd.

Show tickets can be purchased online or walk-in. Children below 16 years old with adult supervision can enter for free. Guests can also bring dogs but leashes are mandatory.
