Bring Granny on your next camping trip? According to Turu.com.au ‘Gramping’ is becoming increasingly popular among Australian families and we can see why.
Family friendly Aussies love the outdoors and an increasingly popular trend is sweeping the country – ‘Gramping’ which involves camping with kids, parents and grandparent. Over 1,500 Aussie families have already been hitting campsites across the country.
The ‘Gramping’ season kicks off on 26 of October and Aerogard is calling out to Australians to take part. Gramping was created in 2013 by the Gramping Association, in partnership with Turu.com.au, and is sponsored by Aerogard and Mortein.
More than 1,500 families across Australia have registered their own Grampounts taking place at campsites and in backyards across the country.
Accessible from Turu.com.au parks nationally, the family-orientated camping tradition allows grandparents to camp for free* on the weekend of 24 – 26 October.
“We encourage Australians to take this opportunity to embrace the warmer weather and create special memories with their families, away from the distractions of day-to-day life,” Spokesperson for Aerogard Australia, Rowena Newman said.
“Gramping is becoming more and more popular in Australia as it’s a great way to switch off, get back to nature and spend quality time with loved ones. We know the Australian outdoors can be a challenge with summer pests, so we recommend that you arm yourself with a Gramping toolkit that includes Aerogard mosquito spray to ensure you have the best possible time.”

Robert Gallagher, General Manager of Turu.com.au, claims that last year was incredibly successful and that they anticipate even more people getting involved in Gramping this year.
“We provide almost 2,000 parks across the country, many of which are family, and even pet friendly, for camping or caravanning.”
