Sadly, it wasn't me! The prize went to the lovely Bianca Wordley, who with her husband and three kids will get to review three family holidays for Escape Travel on social media.
But the other finalists and I felt like winners too, because we were each given a domestic holiday in Australia for our families.
The kids and I haven't decided exactly where or when we are going yet, but the chances are it will be a hotly debated subject in coming weeks.
The best part of the day though, was meeting the finalists and the great people from Escape Travel. There were also interesting people from other media there too, like Out And About With Kids magazine.
The finale was at the Pullman Grand Quay Sydney Harbour's ECQ bar, with it's floor-to-ceiling views overlooking Circular Quay and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It was simply breathtaking.
As we talked travel, writing, and blogging, we felt very lucky to have been chosen from hundreds of entrants from around Australia to be the finalists, especially when the Escape Travel shared some of the amazing entries.
While it's back to reality this week, here are a few photos from the day ... each time I look at them I remind myself it really did happen!

Beautiful Sydney - maybe one time I'll go for more than a flying visit
Thanks to Escape Travel for the fabulous opportunity and for the fantastic holiday we have to look forward to.
