Gunning RV Friendly Town
Upper Lachlan Tourism is pleased to announce Gunning is now a CMCA RV Friendly Town.
By creating a partnership between RV tourists and the towns they visit, the CMA aims to maximise the value of self-contained RV tourists to regional Australia.
In order to qualify for the program, towns must successfully meet the needs of self-contained RV travellers and satisfy key criteria including:
• Access to a general shopping area
• Provision of appropriate low-cost overnight parking for self-contained vehicles
• access to potable water and a free dump point
With these amenities in place, RV tourists can access any RV Friendly Town knowing they will be welcomed and well looked after. The Campervan Motor home Club of Australia (CMCA) supports all towns with RV Friendly status through promotion to CMCA members and the broader self-contained RV community.
There are more than 300 towns across Australia with RV friendly status. Providing accommodation options for self-contained RV travellers is the fastest growing segment of the RV tourism market.
Gunning joining the RV Friendly Town network will deliver direct benefits to the local business community. Gunning will be promoted to RV travellers across Australia through the CMCA club magazine, The Wanderer, and through the website and social media. With the self-contained RV tourism market estimated to be worth $2.5 billion annually, Gunning is now well positioned to access this lucrative tourism market.
The number of registered RVs in Australia is expected to grow to more than 700,000 vehicles by 2020. Regional Australia will benefit from this growth.
Being an RV Friendly Town, Gunning has the opportunity to promote the region’s attractions and capture a part of this massive growth market.
