Free 12th Page Advert
As part of this year’s membership fee you will receive a 1/12th page advert in the 2020 Caravan Park Directory.
This advert will be included in the region that best represents your business.
A 12th page advert is 90 mm (w) x 42 mm (h) and will need to be supplied as a high res PDF to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you already advertise in the Directory, or would like to upgrade your advert you can still do so. If you wish to take up this offer you can claim a $1,000 discount off the rate card prices instead of taking the 12th page advert.

You will continue to receive a listing in the Tourist Information section of the Caravan Park Directory.
This listing will include a brief description of your business along with a contact phone number and website.
The Caravanning Queensland website was upgraded in late 2018 providing caravanning and camping visitors looking to explore Queensland with high quality, and truly aspirational images designed to get them planning their next trip to Queensland immediately.
In the past six months this website has attracted over 135,000 users looking for information about caravanning and camping in Queensland.

Align your business with CPAQ
As an Associate Supplier you can include our logo and acknowledgment of your membership of CPAQ on your marketing materials using a logo such as this one.
This showcases your strong support of the industry to caravan park owners and operators across Queensland.
Caravan Parks Association of Queensland Ltd (CPAQ) is the peak industry body representing caravan parks in Queensland. Established in 1966, the association is the voice for the caravan parks industry in Queensland, providing support, networking, professional development and promotional opportunities for our members.
There are currently over 410 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.
Our vision is to enable our members to provide the ultimate customer experience in a sustainable business environment that supports their local community. 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
