The article focuses on the upsurge of caravanning and camping in Australia. It says that the upsurge comes as the international tourist arrivals decrease in which travelers look for cheaper holiday options. However, finding good caravan sites are getting harder due to Australian laws that prohibit the purchase of caravan sites. Moreover, renting of a coastal site for a caravan park is about 5000 dollars per year but it also becomes harder to find.
