Win a trip on us

November 2020

After what has been a big year for us all, many Tasmanians are keen to head outdoors and explore their own backyards. So we've teamed up with our partner, Apollo Motorhomes, to give one lucky winner a $1500 travel voucher so they can experience the open road in a campervan or motorhome. Travel around Tassie or interstate (on us!) and tell our members all about the experience in digital Journeys. Plus, Apollo vehicles are pet-friendly so you can bring them along with you, too!

 

Our digital Journeys magazine is sent straight to the inbox of over 95,000 members every two months. This is the perfect chance to have your work read by thousands of Tasmanians and featured on our website.  

 

What you'll need to do?

  • Travel Tassie or the mainland in an Apollo campervan or motorhome of your choice;
  • Take over our Instagram account and share your fun with our members; and
  • Write an engaging article about your getaway ready for our digital Journeys magazine. Check out our own Apollo trip up the east coast of Tassie for inspiration. 

All before 30 June 2021.

Interested?

If this sounds like something you'd love to do, and you're available to do it in the required time frame, then we can't wait to see your entry. Simply send us an email answering the below question in 150 words or less and attach an image or two. It doesn't have to be a pic from that experience, we just want to make sure your images will work for us. 

Tell us where you'd like to go and who you'd like to take with you (pets included).

To read more about the prize and some of the finer details, please see our terms and conditions at the bottom of the page. We've also included a link to a couple of our stories below to give you some inspiration and to let you know what we'll be expecting at the end.
