Biloela and Moura join list of RV Friendly Towns

Published: 2nd July 2020

Biloela and Moura have officially been declared RV Friendly Towns by the Campervan and Motorhome Club of Australia (CMCA).

The two towns join 315 other locations across Australia with RV Friendly status.

In order to qualify for the program, towns must successfully meet the needs of self-contained RV travellers and satisfy key criteria including:

  • Access to a general shopping area
  • Provision of appropriate low cost overnight parking for self-contained vehicles
  • Access to potable water and a free dump point

With these amenities in place, RV tourists can access any RV Friendly Town™ in the knowledge they will be welcomed and well looked after. In return, CMCA supports all towns with RV Friendly status through promotion to CMCA members and the broader self-contained RV community.

Banana Shire Mayor Nev Ferrier described the declaration as a major boost for tourism in Biloela and Moura.

“Banana Shire is already extremely popular with grey nomads and other caravanning travellers, with large numbers traditionally staying in towns and locations along the Dawson River,” Cr Ferrier said.

“The CMCA will now be able to promote Biloela and Moura to its members, which should increase visitor numbers to these towns and also to the other already popular locations in the Shire.

“This is a real positive for businesses across the Shire,” Cr Ferrier said.

CMCA Chairman, Garry Lee, said the CMCA RV Friendly Town™ network is one of a number of CMCA initiatives providing accommodation options for self-contained RV travellers, the fastest growing segment of the RV tourism market.

For Biloela and Moura, joining the RV Friendly Town™ network will deliver direct benefits to the local business community.  Both towns will be promoted to RV travellers across Australia through the CMCA club magazine The Wanderer, and through the CMCA website and social media. With the self-contained RV tourism market estimated to be worth more than $2.5 billion annually, Biloela and Moura are now well-positioned to access this lucrative tourism market.


Being an RV Friendly Town, Biloela and Moura have the opportunity to promote the region’s attractions and capture a part of this massive growth market. Through a combination of social media and word of mouth RV tourists will quickly let their fellow travellers know what great places these two towns are to visit and experience what it is that makes these towns unique.
