Caravan nomads roll into town and find out what's on offer

A NICE place to have dinner, good shops and some light entertainment.

These are some of the things caravanners Kathy and Rob Carstens look for when deciding where they'll visit.

The couple was in Kingaroy on the weekend as part of the Australian Caravan Club annual meet-up.

"We've been quite busy, we've been to the RSL, we had a lovely dinner last night (Sunday),” Mrs Carstens said.

A group of the nomads visited Cassis at Booie.

"They really raved about that place,” she said.

The highlight of her trip was the Endeavour Foundation biscuit factory.

"I have been to that place before and I just could not speak highly enough of it,” Mrs Carstens said.

"They give you a morning tea and take you though and show you what they do and you chat to the people that do it.”

While the bickies were nice, Mrs Carstens said it was the staff that made the biggest impression.

"They're just so happy in their job and you don't often see that.”

About five bus loads of nomads went through the Endeavour biscuit factory over the weekend.

It seems the retailers in the Kingaroy Shoppingworld got a taste of the action with Mrs Carstens saying quite a few of her friends found a bargain.

All up, the couple spent about $600 in the region during the five days.
