Macca - Caravanning and camping

80. Craig ‘Macca’ McGown On Caravanning and Camping, ‘Anti-Social’ Social Media & What Kids Won’t Learn in School

Craig ‘Macca’ McGown is a host on the popular Australian travel television show ‘What’s Up Downunder’, which celebrates all things caravanning and camping. While growing up, Macca’s family holidayed in a caravan or tent. These fun filled trips ignited Macca’s passion for the industry and eventually led him to his dream job.

In this week’s episode, Adrian and Macca have a great chat about caravanning and camping and Macca’s TV career. They get serious about the negative effects of social media and discuss the importance of travel and being culturally aware. The episode ends with some insightful yet slightly unconventional advice to kids about learning.

Each Monday join Adrian Easdown as he has enlightening chats with successful leaders within the accommodation, tourism & hospitality industries around the globe, on the first podcast of its kind in the southern hemisphere.

If you’re involved in any way with caravanning and camping, resorts or holiday parks, operating a service-based enterprise or managing any kind of tourism or hospitality business, this is one podcast you won’t want to miss.
