Families set to focus on Territory's iconic sights

TWO lucky families will embark on a once-in-a-lifetime journey next month to combine adventure and education, thanks to Australia's peak caravanning body.

The Caravan Industry Association of Australia has joined forces with Tourism Central Australia to create a "real-life classroom" competition.

The venture is also being supported by Apollo Motorhomes and Ted's Cameras.

It is open to families with children aged between five and 13, who will experience some of the nation's most iconic sights in the Northern Territory.

They will become ultimate junior explorers as they set off with their parents on a 28-day trip in an Apollo Motorhome with return economy flights to Alice Springs, $100 a day to spend, entry to outback tourism experiences and a $2000 Ted's Cameras prize pack to help them document their trip.

Caravan Industry Association of Australia chief executive Stuart Lamont said more and more Australians were taking time off work and taking their families on a caravanning and camping adventure.

"While exploring this great country it is important to maintain consistency with the education system," he said.

"Many parents will work with their children's school to ensure that not only do their children receive the benefits of what they learn in the great outdoors, but they remain connected with the school curriculum."

The "Real Life Classroom" competition, which closes on August 10, will reach out to a variety of media publications and platforms to emphasise the benefits of caravan and camping holidays to families and highlight the educational opportunities available around Australia.

**  The Caravan Industry Association of Australia’s 2017 Real Richness report found that 94 percent of campers believe camping enabled children to engage socially, 97 percent that it allowed them to learn about the environment and 71 percent that it improved their behaviour. Even 69 percent of non-campers surveyed thought it taught them important life skills.
