JODIE Bromirski's kids would often look longingly at the Oaks Oasis Resort's adventure park as they drove past the Caloundra accommodation almost daily.
So the Pelican Waters resident was excited to receive the call last week that her family had won a holiday to that very destination.
"We're very grateful," Jodie, 37, said.
"It's a great prize.
"Even though we're local we'll enjoy it as much as a holidaymaker."
The Bromirski family will call the Oaks Oasis Resort in Caloundra home for five nights, and enjoy the use of all the facilities including the popular water park, after claiming the Sunshine Coast Family Holiday competition prize.
"I think they're (the kids) are excited about using the water park because they see it all the time - they'll be very entertained," Jodie said.
The prize also includes a family pass to Australia Zoo and children Jack, 6, and Stella, 3, are pretty amped up to visit a place that Stella has seen only on television ads.
Hubby Greg is excited over the prospect of putting his feet up for a few days.
