Queensland has shown strong growth in the number of new registered caravans during the last two financial years, up 68% in 1999-2000 and 34% in 2000-2001 compared to the previous financial years. The Northern Territory was the only State or Territory to record a fall in new caravan registrations, falling 26% in 1999-2000 compared to 1998-99 (see graph F3.2), although it recorded strong growth in 2000-2001. The Northern Territory also has the lowest number of new caravan registrations (see graph F3.3).
Victoria has by far the largest number of new registered caravans, accounting for around a third of all new caravan registrations in all three financial years (see graph F3.3).
