Because we stayed at this resort last year, and the bad weather meant the kids could only use the water playground once out of the five days!

Family holidays are incredibly rare,
Daily drudgery drives us to despair.
The kids are wild they like to cavort -
Please send us to Paradise Resort.

We haven't been to Queensland for years, I would love to get back there.

A break would be just wonderful right now.  I'm a single mum too and kids have been through the wringer.  It'd be nice to give them something nice.

Apologies for leaving this thread open! The prize was drawn late last year. EB member Lousie from Victoria won the prize, here's an email she sent us last week:

"We have just returned from our trip away to Paradise Resort, a prize I won through Essential Baby last year.

We had such a wonderful time and would like to thank you so much for the opportunity to have our first family holiday.

The weather was wonderful so were the facilities and many fantastic memories were created!"

And here's a pic of her and her son at the resort:


Thanks to everyone who entered, we hope we can bring you more fab holiday prizes this year.
