Planning a holiday can be stressful.
Whether it's a jaunt along the gorgeous village of Italy's Cinque Terre or island hopping through French Polynesia, there are lots of elements to consider when planning even the most relaxing of escapes.
Now with COVID in the mix, it's a whole different ballgame, and travellers are looking domestically for getaways when lockdown ends, but planning can still be an issue.
However, the Natimuk Agricultural and Pastoral Society have sought to solve this problem by raffling off 50 Aussie holidays.
Natimuk Show secretary Judith Bysouth said the initiative was about giving back to the community.
"We ahd a really exceptional show this year, and we just thought, 'well, we've got 50 holiday vouchers and everyone's locked down dreaming about a holiday they can't have at the moment," Ms Bysouth said.
Whether you'd like to visit Queensland's Big Things or the wonders of Kakadu in the Northern Territory, Australia has plenty to offer for holidaymakers.
Tickets for the raffle cost $5, with the money raised from the raffle going towards purchasing VicTrack land adjacent to the Natimuk Showground.
"We're buying the part of the old railway line, which is part of the show grounds," Ms Bysouth said.
"We bought half of it when in 2012 when HRCC asked us to accommodate the Natimuk Tennis Club following the devastating flooding of the courts in 2011. The whole of the land was not available for sale at that time.
"We have rented it since then and the rent has continued to rise. Our Committee made the decision to purchase the remainder of the land two years ago. We have now been advised this is about to come to fruition."
There are 50 accommodation vouchers to be won, three nights each, valued between $600 and $900, with the winners being drawn on 18 December at the Natimuk Pavillion.
To enjoy the accommodation, winners must pay the nighty 'booking & service fees' per room for that destination, around $33 a night.
