The Caravan Parks and Camping Grounds industry has been reinventing itself over the past 10 years, moving away from its original core services and offering more facilities and better accommodation. Operators have improved facilities for families – the industry's major market – and now provide more self-contained cabins and units. The industry has become an important part of total tourist accommodation in Australia, competing fiercely with other budget accommodation such as motels and backpacker hostels.
Operators in this industry manage holiday parks, caravan parks and camping grounds with 40 or more powered sites for caravans, cabins, flats, units and villas that provide either short-term or long-term accommodation to the general public. Operators also provide toilet, shower and laundry facilities for guests.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
