Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

PACK up the bags and the fam­ily for your own all-Aussie ad­ven­ture with a camp­ing and car­a­van trip.

Dur­ing the past year, camp­ing hol­i­days have risen by 16 per cent, ac­cord­ing to the Car­a­van and Camp­ing In­dus­try As­so­ci­a­tion NSW.

Do­mes­tic travel around the coun­try is also up, with car­a­van parks ex­pect­ing more than 11 mil­lion peo­ple for an overnight stay this year.

“Aus­tralians are re­con­nect­ing with do­mes­tic hol­i­days,” the as­so­ci­a­tion’s chief ex­ec­u­tive Lyn­del Gray said.

“There’s def­i­nitely a grow­ing nostal­gia for the tra­di­tional hol­i­day.”
