1 Minute Read

Set to Mark National Camping Day 2013

Australians from all walks of life are set to celebrate National Camping Day by participating in the Great Aussie Camp Out (GACO) on Saturday 12th October, 2013.

GACO brings together thousands of Australians for one big night where they share the experience of camping out under the stars… in their back yards, on a river bank, in a camp, a national park, a caravan park — in fact, anywhere they might feel like!

GACO promotes healthy active lifestyles, encouraging individuals, families, friends and clubs to enjoy the great outdoors experiencing the fun and adventure of camping out.

No prior camping experience is necessary!
