About Caravan Parks Association of Queensland
Caravan Parks Association of Queensland Ltd (CPAQ) is the peak industry body representing caravan parks in Queensland. Established in 1966, we provide a united and informed voice for the Queensland caravan parks industry.
As a professional, solution focused association, we encourage and support industry best practice across all areas of business by providing our members with leadership, support, networking, professional development, and promotional opportunities.
There are currently over 445 full and associate members of CPAQ, made up of caravan parks (catering for tourists and residents) and campgrounds, large and small, from all corners of the State, industry suppliers, tourism businesses, plus regional and local tourism organisations.
We seek to work with both state and local governments to balance the needs of the consumer with those of the Government and industry. Further we actively strive to ensure not only that minimum standards within parks are met, but that over time these industry standards are in fact driven higher.
We trade under the brand Caravanning Queensland which joins the two related but separate peak industry bodies in Queensland, providing a clear united voice for the sector:
- Caravan Parks Association of Queensland (CPAQ) the voice of the caravan park owners and operators and the associated supply chain in Queensland.
- Caravan Trade & Industries Association of Queensland (CTIAQ) the voice of the trade sector in the caravan and camping industry in Queensland with a membership made up predominantly of retailers, manufacturers, hirers, repairers, and suppliers in the caravan and camping industries.
What we do
To support our industry and our members we will focus on four key priority areas:
- Industry Advocacy
- Support Services
- Special Deals
- Promotional Activities
- Networking Events
