Holiday at home for your chance to WIN!
Posted on April 16th, 2020
Whether it’s relaxing in the backyard coastal ‘resort’, fossicking for garden treasures, sharing the thrills of a wildlife adventure, fantasy fishing in the home headwaters or cooking up a culinary storm with a pretend creation from your favourite restaurant, Capricorn Enterprise is urging local families to keep their holiday dreams alive amidst the current COVID-19 crisis, which has impacted the way that we would normally fulfil school holidays in our wonderful region.
The ‘Holiday at Home’ competition, launched last Thursday, encourages families with young children to use imaginary play to recreate their favourite holiday experience from the comfort of your own home or backyard.
By simply uploading a photo or video to the Visit Capricorn Facebook page, your tribe could win one of three ‘Family Boredom Buster’ prize packs valued at $250, filled with exciting prizes from local businesses including kids games and activities, a takeaway restaurant voucher, family tour/attraction passes, donut making kits and more!
Capricorn Enterprise CEO, Mary Carroll expressed that while 2020 looks and feels a little different, it doesn’t mean that local families need to forgo that holiday feeling over the coming weeks. “Our sub-tropical days remain simply spectacular and provide the perfect excuse to set up the backyard beach or camping trip and continue to enjoy the sunshine with your loved ones in your own environments.”
“We will all eventually get through this tough time and the key right now is to stay healthy, continue dreaming, keep exploring and start planning all the things you would like to do within our top-notch destination once restrictions are eased.”
“In addition, it is an incredibly important time to show our appreciation of local businesses and the experiences they have shared with our families over many years. Our region has so much to offer in terms of education and wonder to inspire our youngest residents and we are looking forward to seeing many backyard escapades over the coming weeks,” said Mary.
A lucky winner will be drawn each Friday and will be notified by Capricorn Enterprise via Facebook.
What are you waiting for? It’s time to grab the swag, binoculars, beach towel or fossicking bucket. Round up your pets or perhaps your favourite cuddly stuffed friends and show us how holidaying is done in your neck of the woods.
Happy holidaying at home!
