Spirit Of Stray Competition


See the winners on Facebook 

Share your best photo or video and be in to win a FREE Stray trip in NZ, Australia or Southeast Asia!

There's no denying that the world has changed drastically over the last few months but one thing remains unchanged - our love for travel!

Our travel bucket lists may be on hold temporarily but in the meantime, while we play our part and #stayhome, we can appease our inner travel bug virtually and #keepthedreamalive!

We can't wait for the day when we can welcome you back on board our Stray buses and show you the ins and outs of our incredible destinations. So to celebrate a brighter future, we've got not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 epic prizes up for grabs.

We are calling all budding photographers, videographers and even the amateur ‘point and shooters’ to share your best Stray moments with us and be in the running to win a FREE Stray trip in New Zealand, Asia or Australia!

There has never been a better time to filter through those photo albums and start that video project you've been procrastinating...

“Capture the Spirit of Stray”

This years Spirit of Stray competition embodies everything that we love about travel. From the connections we make with fellow adventurers to the jaw-dropping sights we lay eyes on and the fascinating cultures we immerse ourselves in. It's YOU, our travellers, who have lived and breathed the adventures who are best able to capture this!

If your photo/video encapsulates elements of exciting adventures, new experiences, good times shared with good people, getting further off the beaten track and meeting local communities then you are on the right track. Take a look at some of our previous finalists for inspiration:
