ROMANCE for some travellers is just a road-trip away, according to the caravanning and camping industry.

In fact, according to the Caravanning Industry Association of Australia, camping sojourns are particularly good for improving relationships.

It’s Real Richness Report found that 85 percent of campers felt closer to their spouse or partner compared to 65 percent of non-campers.

For couples looking to make the most of time away together, camping trips offered a chance to disconnect from technology and enjoy time with one another in nature, with 94 percent of campers believing that camping created happy memories.

“The value of camping to me is the exclusivity of the time I have with my partner,” one woman who took part in the research said.

And a man commented: “I am about to retire and intend to spend more time with my wife after an extended time in the Defence Force. It is time to pay some time back to my family.”

The Caravan Industry Association of Australia said the positive responses reflected the true value that caravanning and camping added to the lives of many Australians.

The research was conducted by undertaking two surveys; one through a sample of 750 people who enjoyed caravan and camping trips, and the other with a group of 1000 Australians who had not caravanned or camped in the past 20 years.

Romantics without either a caravan or tent could try glamping, it suggests.

‘Glamorous’ camping had swept onto the scene in the last few years as part of the evolution of camping and offered all the perks of outdoor experiences.

Essentially, glamping is a luxurious form of camping with options ranging from safari tents, to tree houses, beach shacks and more which are often fully equipped with electricity, baths and even kitchen facilities.

Scenic destinations throughout Australia are now offering unique glamping experiences on mountains, beaches, rainforests and more.
