Saying hello at the caravan and camping show

Initiatives such as the WA Parks Foundation’s innovative Smartreka digital mapping program drew interest from the many visitors to our stand at the Perth Caravan and Camping Show.

“The downloadable smart maps use GPS to help navigate some of Western Australia’s most beautiful national parks as well as displaying information on campsites, trails and other features,” said WA Parks Foundation Chair, the Hon Kerry Sanderson AC CVO.

“Our presence at this very popular event was also an opportunity to promote the Foundation’s role in connecting people with WA’s national parks, building awareness and appreciation of these natural assets and helping to conserve them for present and future generations.”

“The ever-growing popularity of caravan and camping holidays is a significant contributor to growth in visitor numbers to WA’s national parks, marine parks and reserves, and we welcomed this opportunity to participate.

“Thanks are due to Fiona Cooper Smyth, our Marketing and Partnerships Manager and the Foundation’s General Manager Melanie Wilshin for their contribution. Also to Park Ambassadors Emeritus Professor Ross Dowling AM, Professor Lyn Beazley AO and Ainslie de Vos for their talks on aspects of the Foundation’s work.

The WA Parks Foundation’s attractive prize draws for new members and new subscribers to our newsletter closes 31 March 2023.
