Over the past decade the campervan tourism market continued to expand. It’s now one of the most important and sustainable sector of the industry.
Growth will increase rapidly over the next few years as the ‘Baby Boomer’ generation hits the road in retirement, with this segment having preference for driving holidays.
It’s estimated that there will soon be more than 100,000 campervans on the road at any one time in Australia, with campervan tourists set to dominate tourism activity in Regional Australia.
The Camper Van Motor Home Club of Australia (CMCA) suggest that campervan tourists spend an average of $550 per week when travelling.
Clearly, it’s important to understand and meet the needs of these travellers.
Currently the CCA list only 11 campervans sullage points throughout the Pilbara region, and this PRC project plans to lift the region’s facilities in this important area.
This will also improve recreational travel for the local population, adding to the attraction of regional employment.
