Green Nomads are the new grey
The Gold Coast’s Feel Good Family swap the 9-5 routine to travel Australia in their caravan
An emerging market is set to take the Australian caravan industry by storm with the value driven eco-conscious millennial and family sector thriving, currently accounting for over 47% of the market.
Following what has become a booming trend for young families like theirs, Paul and Katie Guerin from the Gold Coast have packed up their lives, put their careers on hold, and are about to embark on the Australian dream travelling the country in their Coromal caravan with son Jasper, aged 3.
With stellar careers working for world leading brands including Warner Brothers, Walt Disney Television, Australia Zoo, eBay and the National Trust, it wasn’t until the arrival of their miracle IVF baby Jasper, that they realised taking more time to spend with family is what matters most.
The enthusiastic young couple, with backgrounds in entertainment and production, will be sharing and airing their entire journey with an online and social media audience, by creating weekly episodes of their Family Travel Australia series to be shown via their Feel Good Family YouTube channel and social media outlets.
The family are proud brand ambassadors for both the National Trust of Australia (Queensland) and Brisbane’s own Coromal caravans, backed by Apollo Tourism & Leisure Ltd.
“It’s an exciting new chapter for the National Trust of Australia (Queensland) to be exploring Australia’s cultural and conservation landscapes through the lens of a travelling family. We believe our partnership with The Feel Good Family will connect the Trust with a broader audience and bring exposure to our mission to protect, conserve, and celebrate Queensland’s environmental, built and cultural heritage” said Jonathan Fisher, CEO of National Trust of Australia (Queensland).
“Coromal is thrilled to be the travel partner with our Coromal Element 696 caravan and we look forward to The Feel Good Family’s entertaining and educational stories on the road. Coromal is an adventurous and uniquely Australian caravan brand for families that resonates generationally. The Feel Good Family’s message is synonymous with Coromal’s sense of adventure” said Simon Kerr, Marketing Manager – Retail, Coromal.
Being complete novices to caravanning, the Feel Good Family are hoping the experiences shared through their video content will not only have an educational element, but will inspire others to take their own leap of faith, get outdoors and make memories that will last.
