The Geelong Outdoor Living and Caravan Expo is celebrating a decade of showcasing the latest equipment for outdoor activities.

Formerly known as the Geelong Outdoor Living Show, the event is celebrating its 10th year at the Geelong Showgrounds from January 19 to 21.

The Expo’s Liz Lockwood said the three-day event would feature the event’s “biggest exhibitor offering” with 120 exhibitors on display.

“We will have everything for outdoor adventures and the camping lifestyle that Australians love and are so invested in,” she said.

“The weather forecast is looking spot on, and I think we’re going to see some warmer weather in the coming months as well with lots of public holidays, like the Australia Day long weekend.

“People love getting away camping and caravanning and this is the perfect chance to stock up and see the new ranges for the 2024 caravan offering.”

Ms Lockwood said she expected up to 15,000 people to attend the show and looked forward to “seeing all the happy customers come through the gates”.

“I like seeing everyone excited when they leave the show and chatting about their upcoming holidays,” she said.

“It’s a big family event, like camping, where everyone packs the kids in the back of the car and goes away by the river or the beach, so we want to reflect that family nature of camping in the event.

“We’ve got lots of kid’s activities and some live music. We’ve just got that family offering, which is something that we wanted.”

Tickets can be purchased online, with $15 for adults and $12 for seniors and concessions, at or at the gate for an extra $3, with children under 16 free.
