The Accessible Group partners with Caravan Industry Association of Australia to promote accessible tourism in the caravan industry

The Caravan Industry Association of Australia is proud to announce a partnership with The Accessible Group (Accessible Accommodation) to raise awareness of the power of Accessible tourism within the caravan and camping industry.

It is looking forward to encouraging caravan holiday parks to build accessible friendly infrastructure and promote the facilities available for those travelling with accessible needs right across the country as part of a caravanning experience.

Last November Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) facilitated an infrastructure grants program for caravan holiday parks (thank you Senator Farrell for your support on this), and it was great to see so many projects looking to incorporate accessible friendly developments under this funding program.

Over 20% (some 3.8 million) of trips annually are conducted in the caravan and camping industry with a member of the travelling party identifying as having accessible needs.
