The annual Penrith Expo, run by the Caravan and Camping Industry Association (CCIA) NSW, will be held September 9-11 at the Penrith Panthers Exhibition Centre in Penrith, NSW. The expo will feature over 150 exhibitors, with hundreds of caravans, motorhomes, campervans, camper trailers, tents, equipment and accessories, and holiday park and destination displays.
With Tourism Research Australia’s latest National Visitor Survey (NVS) figures for the March 2016 quarter showing an increase in domestic holidays, it is little surprise there’s also strong demand in the caravanning and camping sector.
“Australians are reconnecting with domestic holidays and the latest industry data shows this holiday segment is growing fast,” Caravan and Camping Industry Association (CCIA) NSW CEO Lyndel Gray said.
Ms Gray said the Penrith Expo, now in its 21st year of operation, not only offers a great place to check out all the latest products, but is also a wonderful family day out with entertainment for the kids including jumping castles, a petting zoo and face painting. Also new to the Penrith Expo this year is the XXXX Gold Beer Garden with live entertainment.
The Penrith Expo will be open from 9am-5pm (closes 4pm Sunday) each day and tickets can be purchased either online or at the gates on the day.
Adult tickets are $15, concession $10, and children 16 and under are free when accompanied by an adult. Free parking will also be available at the venue.
