Tony Cox and his family have always been avid campers, but it has been many years since he has owned a caravan.
That is about to change, with Tony officially announced as the recipient of an Avida Rock Caravan thanks to the Win a Weekender competition.
Tony says he has never won anything in his life.
“I received a phone call last week whilst driving home… you could have knocked me over with a feather,” he said.
“My first comment was ‘You have got to be joking!’”
“I didn’t believe the news until I saw this list in print on the Facebook site.”
Tony has fond memories of caravan and camping throughout his life, including owning a caravan for two years while living in Scotland and using it to tour Scotland, England, France, Germany, Switzerland and Austria. Throughout this time he and his family made memories to last a lifetime, drove around famous sites like the Arc de Triomphe and met friendly locals around Europe.
Now, he is looking forward to taking trips all around Australia in his new Avida Rock Caravan.
“Everywhere throughout Australia would be good to explore, beginning with the Cape York region,” he said.
“Our family has always been heavily involved in camping and it is wonderful to see the grandchildren enjoying the same experiences.”
“(I love) the chance to experience the freedom of the outdoors and to observe our natural beauty, through scenery and wildlife. There is nothing like a family holiday to enjoy with our three children and four grandchildren. Great memories and new friendships!”
