Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

Australia Zoo Father's Day Challenge
Does Dad lean towards being a lean, mean fighting machine? Then why not coax him into competing in Australia Zoo Father's Day Challenge. Dads will take on the giant inflatable obstacle course and be in the draw to win an OzTent RV5 worth $1399 - sounds like a win-win to me!
A challenge for Dads - the giant inflatable obstacle course

C'mon Dads and Granddads too, you've got to be in it, to win it!
