Free Spirit Resort!

After our flight from Perth to Darwin on 9th May, we picked up our hire car & headed to our first stop at the Free Spirit Resort for 2 nights as part of the prize.  We were met by the friendly reception staff Jade & Tegan who made the check in easy.  We were given a very comfortable 2 bedroom chalet in a quiet part of the park.  We took the opportunity to explore the park while we were there & can say it is a very large, orderly & well-maintained park where we would definitely stay if we visited Darwin again in our caravan.  It has all the usual attractions as well as a restaurant & bar on site where we had complimentary drinks.  The amenities, camp kitchen & laundry are all good as well as the pools & jumping pillow.   The park has a very pleasant, tropical feel about it being well placed with shops nearby, a petrol station next door & a bus stop outside the park on the Stuart Highway.  The only drawback is it is 15 km from Darwin CBD.  Thanks to Danella for all her help with arranging my booking.

Follow in our footsteps

You may remember, in June last year we went on a trip with New Age Caravans to the Northern Territory where we traveled to some spectacular and magical places (check out the Digital Magazine here). Following the conclusion of the trip, we decided amongst the parks and attractions we visited that we’d love to give one lucky winner the opportunity to “follow in our footsteps”.

Without further ado we would like to introduce to our lucky winner Susanne. Susanne will be sharing her experience with us over a few blog posts, so make sure you keep an eye out on our facebook page to see how her trip is going!

‘My name is Susanne Pavlovic and I am the winner of the What’s Up Downunder recent 10 Days in Northern Territory competition. My husband John & I have been married 42 years during which time we raised 3 children who are all married & we now have 8 beautiful grandchildren aged between 2 to 8. 

We have lived in Mandurah WA for 27 years and both retired 3 years ago. Our retirement holiday was touring New Zealand in a motorhome for 6 weeks. We thoroughly enjoyed that experience, as a result we bought a caravan & 4WD and set out on our 15 month journey around Australia. We didn’t spend much time in the Northern Territory due to time constraints to be elsewhere, so we entered the competition offered by What’s Up Downunder. We were thrilled to learn we had won this competition and are extremely excited to be able to go back and re-explore what we missed. 

Make sure you follow along on our journey in following in the footsteps of What’s Up Downunder!’
