Music has taken Tim Wilson all round the world.

But the one place he has always wanted to go is New York, while taking in the jazz bars, Broadway and the amazing surroundings.

That is now a step closer, with Mr Wilson winning $10,000 in a Melbourne Airport competition.

Fully vaccinated Victorians have the chance to win a monthly prize, by just saying where they would travel if they won the $10,000 prize.

Mr Wilson made a 60 second video using his musical talents.

“It ($10,000) is OK for a prick in the arm,” he said.

“They were running a competition on Facebook and Instagram. It was about showing us where you want to go and why in either 50 words or a 60 second video.

“I thought that was something that I could do. As a musician I did a multi instrument ensemble.”

The Sunshine resident said after being grounded for the last two years due to the pandemic he was excited to get to America and check out New York.

“Everyone says New York is the place to be. I want to take some of our music over there and hit the up the piano bars.

“And go to a few Broadway shows, and I especially want to see Hugh Jackman who is performing a show.”
