Jeff Leech, the organiser of the Batemans Bay Caravan and Camping Show that was is scheduled for 28th, 30th, 31st January 2021 at Hanging Rock sporting complex told The Beagle that "Unfortunately, due to Covid and the continued uncertainties around current and potential border closures the scheduled January show has had to be postponed until June." "Prior to the cancellation we were fully booked out with 300 caravans committed for display and a wonderful, enthusiastic commitment from a record number of displays and suppliers. "Plans are already underway to successfully move the event to June and we are just awaiting Council to confirm a date." "The Beagle will keep you up to date on the June show once we have confirmation of the venue and date." "With such a huge interest in the booming caravan industry the June show of 2021 will be massive."
