Roam the Gnome was a Top 10 Finalist – Follow the Sun Competition with Dometic

INSIDE: Roam the Gnome was a Top 10 Finalist in Dometic’s Follow the Sun Competition. 

We were over the moon to be chosen as one of the Top 10 finalists Follow the Sun Competition, with thanks to Dometic and the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Being a finalist in the Dometic Follow The Sun Competition was a dream come true.

We were in with a chance to have the opportunity to travel the East Coast of Australia in a Pink 3-berth mini Winnebago caravan, visiting all the SUPER DOOPER FUN family friendly spots we can find along the way. 

Three months on the road, leaving Melbourne on August 1st, and heading all the way up to Cairns.

Unfortunately, we weren’t the lucky ones BUT we were chuffed to be in the running. 

And one of our travel family blogger friends won!  

What a thrill.
