World’s largest Lego caravan in tow for 50th celebrations
The Queensland Caravan, Camping and Touring Supershow is hauling out all the stops for its 50th show including the world’s largest Lego caravan, as it pulls into the Brisbane Showgrounds from today.
More than 50,000 people will make the trip to the state’s largest caravan show over the next six days (June 6-11), with more than 250 exhibitors showcasing almost 1,000 caravans, motorhomes, camper trailers and recreational vehicles, along with camping products and travel accessories.
A highlight this year is a life-sized Lego caravan, made from more than 280,000 individual plastic bricks and taking around 700 hours and 70 litres of glue to build. The show is aiming to break the Guinness World Record for the largest Lego caravan, as part of its half-century celebrations.
The Supershow will also feature seminars for outdoor adventurers on topics such as tips for towing safely and preparing for big trips, as well as camp oven cooking demonstrations.
Brisbane Showgrounds General Manager of Venue Sales and Marketing Jago Coyle said the event had been held at the Showgrounds for four decades.
“The caravan show may be celebrating 50 Supershows, but 2018 also marks 40 consecutive shows held at our iconic venue,” he said.
“The event has remained popular with holiday makers year after year – it’s the second largest annual event to be held at the Showgrounds, behind the Royal Queensland Show (Ekka).”
Adding to the 50th celebrations, tickets to the Caravan, Camping and Touring Supershow are half price.
The Brisbane Showgrounds precinct is located just 1.5km from Brisbane’s CBD and is
Queensland’s largest indoor/outdoor events site.
