For adventurers with an appreciation for the beauty of our country, the Follow the Sun Relay is the perfect opportunity to travel around Australia.

Dometic, Caravan Industry Association of Australia and Winnebago Australia are looking for families, friends, couples or solo travellers to undertake a unique journey and share their stories!  


Vehicle sponsor Winnebago Australia have supplied a fantastic Byron motorhome to help participants make the most of the experience and different legs of the trip will be taken by various participants at each destination point and travellers looking to undertake a unique journey are invited to apply.

“Our Byron motorhome can drive and sleep up to 6 people, so a wide range of travelers are encouraged to apply to experience the luxury and comfort of motorhoming.” said Luke Trouchet, CEO Winnebago Australia.  “Whether it’s a trip from Darwin to Alice with your mates, or a family excursion up the East Coast, this partnership will allow us to show Aussies’ unforgettable roadtrip experiences.”

The relay began on Saturday, June 9 at the Queensland Caravan Camping and Touring Supershow in Brisbane, where the first explorers began their trip.   The Winnebago motorhome is now travelling around Australia for the next year and will return to the Show in 2019.


Throughout their trips, travellers on each leg will have the opportunity to visit iconic landmarks and stunning locations.  While undertaking the journey, the travellers are staying at holiday parks around Australia. The parks are also involved in the relay, holding ‘happy hour’ events and promoting Follow the Sun.   “Participants will be given the keys to the motorhome, campervan or four-wheel drive and asked to share stories, videos, photos and fun moments from their trip,” he said.

“They will travel all around the country and really show people some of the amazing things they can experience on a caravan and camping holiday.”
