of their prize, the biggest we've ever given
away in the history of Caravanning Queensland and in the industry
nationally," he said.
"Being able to get out and explore the landscape and communities
throughout the bush and east coast is one of the great advantages of

Scott and Carla can now explore destinations that were previously out of
