Do you enjoy pulling the RV out and taking a trip around the countryside?
This could be your lucky day because one camper will earn a chance to win $1M simply by enjoying a road trip.
The Caravan Industry Association of Australia launched a camping and regional road trip tourism campaign on June 1 to help support the country’s tourism.
“Road to a Million’ is designed to help tourism and regional businesses recover after COVID.
Fewer people travel around through the winter months, further limiting some businesses’ ability to recover to pre-Covid levels.
There are 840,000 registered RVs in Australia and more than 1405 caravan parks across the nation.
Aussies have fallen in love with camping and reconnecting with the simpler things in life, so the idea is to encourage people to take a winter trip.
There are multiple physical and emotional benefits to a camping trip, which can be accessed by visiting family and friends, enjoying nature and being outdoors.
When campers travel around a region they enjoy local attractions, eat at local dining establishments and fill up at local service stations, so all local businesses benefit.
Taking one extra trip this winter would support regional tourism and put money directly into the hands of small businesses.
To enter campers need to book a stay at a participating caravan holiday park or with a participating RV rental business between June 1 and October 31.
Campers earn one point for each night of their booking, but entries receive a multiplier depending on how far from the state capital they are staying.
If you rent an RV and stay at a caravan park fill out the entry form separately for both bookings; do the same if you stay at more than one caravan park.
Five winners will be drawn from the pool of entries randomly on November 22.
The first person drawn will be given the major prize which is a one-in-250 chance draw to win $1M cash.
If they miss the big win, they will take home $5000 in travel vouchers.
Four runners-up will receive $1000 in travel vouchers.
A full list of participating caravan holiday parks can be found at www.roadtoamillion.com.au.
Complete the entry form and submit your information on the home page of the website.
