For those looking for holiday tips, there will be plenty of Queensland tourism information available to help you plan your next great adventure just in time for the winter school holidays!

The Creek to Coast Cooking & Outdoor Stage featuring Sally Jenyns and Scotty Hillier is located under the fig trees in Sideshow Alley. They’ll be giving some practical demonstrations, showing you how easy it is to cook delicious recipes using your own caravan or camper kitchen. Daily demonstrations begin from 10 am.

If you’re keen to find out more about how to make the most of solar when travelling, then make sure you catch Eddie Springer (Springers Solar) at 12 noon, Wednesday to Sunday.

Gary Gardiner from Hayman Reese is a Technical Towing Expert that will be conducting daily demonstrations on understanding your vehicle, caravan and combined towing weights. Gary will also be providing information, advice and live “hands-on” demonstrations on how a weight distribution hitch works, the importance of using it and how to set it up correctly.

Join Roger Vickery from Creek to Coast, as he arms you with essential information on towing and trip preparation. Roger will also be providing tips on reversing techniques and how to tow safely in all conditions and environments. Roger Vickery knows everything about 4WDs and 4WDing and what he doesn’t know isn’t worth knowing!
