JAYCO AUSTRALIA COUNTS DOWN THEIR TOP 10 SUMMER ADVENTURES
As the weather begins to warm up, Jayco is encouraging travellers across the country to gear up their caravans for an epic road trip adventure by sharing their top 10 list of Aussie adventures to help thrill-seekers plan their summer touring itineraries.
Australians are known for being adventurous when it comes to travel with two out of three Aussies keen to explore new places and destinations, and nearly half of respondents claim to be motivated by a desire to enjoy authentic experiences through travelling1.
“Adventure travel is in the eye of the beholder and we’ve learnt that from our customers sharing their own adventure travels,” said Jayco CEO, Garry Moore.
“Jayco customers have shared all forms of adventures from the avid adrenalin seekers who might be planning to go cage diving with crocodiles in the Northern Territory to caravanning across the Oodnadatta in South Australia, which we’ve heard is quite the adventure.
“No matter what adventure means to you, Jayco believes there is a summer adventure awaiting all of us and that’s why we’ve pulled together our top 10 list of Aussie adventures,” he said.
