It has long been recognised that caravanners, and indeed all RV owners, inject a huge economic boost into the towns and regions they visit whilst travelling this great country of ours. To validate this, the CCQ has been collecting spending data, Locality Expenditure Data, from the CCQ affiliated caravan clubs since 2011.
Locality Expenditure Data is only collected where the expenditures are associated with the regular club rallies and is recorded in four categories for each Locality where the expenditures are made.
Through the CCQ Locality Expenditure Data project it can be shown that a club can inject an amount of up to $10,000 into a community when members attend a club caravan rally. Amounts of over $170,000 have been injected into a community when attending a State Caravan Rally.
The graph below shows the up-to-date Locality Expenditures for the affiliated Caravan Clubs since 2011.
