We asked you for your entries, and you delivered, Mamamia fam!
Yes, we now have the five finalists who filmed their road trip adventures in a Hyundai Santa Fe for a month – and now we want you to see who they are, what they did, and ultimately decide which family deserves to win a new Hyundai Santa Fe.
Not only will you be doing something nice for another deserving Aussie family, but there’s something in this for you, too. Vote for the video you like the most – and you could win a Hyundai Santa Fe yourself!
Effortlessly stylish, the Santa Fe is a spacious seven-seater with room for the entire family, and the largest and most advanced SUV in the Hyundai range. It’s the perfect road trip companion – and perfect for daily driving of your precious cargo, too.
Check out how these five family finalists explored Australia – and hit the links under each video to vote!
The Buchanans, QLD.
This adorable family of four from Queensland drove to northern NSW, where they stayed on a farm, spent their days feeding the animals and their evenings in front of a bonfire. From there, they took the car on a ferry to Stradbroke Island, and finally ended up in the beachside town of Noosa.
You can tell the Buchanans enjoyed the space and comfort of the Santa Fe, because the girls regularly napped on the longer stretches of the trip. It’s during one of their naps that their parents enjoy some quiet time – with a sneaky adult ice cream.
Shhh, don’t tell the kids…

The Lohs, NSW.
The Lohs did a great job of showing off both the great outdoors and the car itself. They made the most of the electric seats and the sunroof, had a play with the touchscreen control panel, the rear USB ports for re-charging devices, seat-warmers, Head-up Display, automatic boot closing, and reversing camera – just to name some of the things this family loved.
In their video, the Lohs head to the beach for some sand-surfing in the sun. Over a month, the family of four drive to a national park, and the local park, to demonstrate the suitability of the car on either road trips or in daily life.

The Lumsden-Keys, VIC.
The Lumsden-Keys family managed to pack a lot into their road trip. They took the Santa Fe outback, driving to Goorambat in Victoria, and stopping in country towns in NSW along the way – including a visit to the Western Plains Taronga Zoo.
Their destination is Sea World on the Gold Coast, where the kids have a sensational time in the sun. They then drive all over the Eastern coast, from Cedar Creek Falls to the Jenolan Caves and back into the Sydney CBD for the Opera House.
The numbers say it all! Statistics: 4892 km travelled, almost 71 hours of driving…and only “four meltdowns”.

The Meins, NSW.
The Mein family includes Haley and Al, Molly, Bella and Immy. The girls are a bit older than the children in the other videos, which is why watching them play in the boot, enjoy the novelty of the sun roof, and sit comfortably three-across in the back (two of them in booster seats) gives us another reminder of how spacious the Santa Fe is.
On the way to a family picnic, there’s the standard Aussie family road-trip conversation where the parents ask the kids to vote on who is the better driver. Dad wins. And of course, there’s a lot of “eye-spy”.
Note the adorable eldest sister-led “dab” as well!

The Ryans, QLD.
This family of five calls themselves a “crazy blended family” with a “token Ranga” – which sets the tone for their quirky sense of humour throughout their video.
The family heads to Townsville, Paluma and lots of places in between. “My favourite thing about the car was going up to Paluma because we could have a great view through the sun roof and it was like paradise,” is Sarah’s final verdict.

We hope these videos give you great ideas for your next family road trip in our amazing country – and we hope that you get to do it in your very own Hyundai Santa Fe.
So vote for the chance to win a new Hyundai Santa Fe – and for one of these Aussie families to win one, too.
