The RSL Art Union Golden Treasure is the annual draw everyone looks forward to. One lucky winner gets to walk away with an entire block of apartments, becoming an instant multi-millionaire with a secure income for life. This year, the draw is even more exciting as it’s offering Australia’s first $5 million prize home package.
First off, there’s a brand-new residential complex that houses five two-bedroom apartments topped by a striking 4-bedroom penthouse. The purpose-built residences sit less than 200 metres from Palm Beach in one of the most sought-after communities on the Gold Coast. There are ocean views from every apartment and they’re all fully furnished with a stunning design package that includes high end appliances and state-of-the art electricals.
Then there’s the cars. Two flash new Audis will be waiting in your secure basement garage, ready for whatever the day might bring. The first one’s a convertible and the second one’s a compact SUV so you’ll be up for anything when it comes to weather and terrain.
If you decide to live in the penthouse, you can look forward to an annual income of around $171,000 a year from the other five apartments. Rent out all six and you’re looking at over $238,000. You won’t have any trouble finding good tenants when you’re only an hour from Brisbane and less than 10 minutes from the Gold Coast Airport.
Rest assured, the Golden Treasure tickets are going to sell out quickly. be sure to make your purchases early if you want a chance at winning this unprecedent and life-changing $5 million draw.
A New Life in Palm Beach
The Gold Coast community of Palm Beach has been around for a long time. Over the years, what were once beachfront shacks have been replaced by multi-million-dollar homes and apartments that have made this one of the most prestigious stretches of real estate in the country. The 4-kilometre length of sand and surf that runs between Tallebudgera and Currumbin Creek is pristine, patrolled, and right in front of your new home.
Lying half an hour to the south of Surfer’s Paradise, this part of the coast has developed its own laid-back vibe. People come here to kayak, walk through the rainforests of the Burleigh Heads National Park, and enjoy an array of cafes, restaurants and boutique shops. Multiple parklands grace this community of around 14,500 residents, many of whom are retired or working in the tourist industry.
There are several attractions in the immediate area, including wild life parks, golf courses and natural points of interest. Moving further afield, you’ll have the entire Gold Coast to explore from the famed nightlife of Surfers Paradise to the spectacular beauty of the hinterland. Whether you want to browse the outdoor markets or simply do a little people-watching on the beach, Palm Beach is the ideal base from which to launch a new life of care-free adventuring.
Discover Rudland’s Reach
The Golden Treasure apartments have been named for Sergeant Peter Rudland, a 28-year veteran of the Australian Army. He was co-captain of the Australian team at the 2017 Invictus Games and a double gold medallist. Peter’s Black Hawk helicopter crashed in Afghanistan in 2010, leaving him with serious multiple injuries. The road to recovery led Peter to take up recumbent cycling and his bravery, tenacity and determination exemplify the indominable Invictus spirit.
This pristine new complex is less than a couple of hundred metres in from the beach and showcases the best of coastal living. All apartments have unobstructed views of the ocean and are designed to capture both the light and ocean breezes that make living near the water such a joy. The penthouse apartment has three balconies and each of the others also enjoy well appointed exterior living spaces where residents can make the most of the building’s desirable location.
The first floor is split between the first two-bedroom apartment and a common space that includes a pool, relaxation deck and BBQ area. Apartment #1 has a larger balcony than the others, wrapping around three sides of the unit with an outdoor lounge alongside a broad alfresco. It’s indoor footprint, however, is similar to that found in apartments #2 and #4. The master bedroom has both a soaking tub and walk-in shower along with a double walk-in robe. The open-plan living room includes an area for dining beside the fully equipped and roomy kitchen. There’s a second bedroom off the living area which is separated from the master suite by a full bathroom.
Apartments #3 and #5 are slightly smaller, and their balconies are accessed solely from the main living area. The floor plan is similar to the larger apartments, but the master suite doesn’t have a walk-in robe and the kitchens are more compact. In addition, the soaking tub has been placed in the shared bathroom rather than in the master bedroom ensuite. The balcony has room for outdoor dining but is not as versatile as the apartments with a genuine alfresco.
The fourth floor of the building is entirely given over to a spectacular penthouse that boasts three balconies, four bedrooms, and a host of additional amenities. These include a butler’s pantry off the kitchen, an additional powder room, a separate enclosed laundry and a superior ensuite off the master bedroom. As with the other apartments, the central living area integrates the kitchen, dining room and lounge into a spacious area that’s perfect for entertaining.

Ticket Books Are Great Value
If you want to win the $5 million Golden Treasure, you’re going to need to make your ticket purchases early. This one is headed for a sell-out and you don’t want to miss your chance to be set for life with your own apartment building in Palm Beach.
Ticket books are the best way to go if you want value for money and additional gold bullion. When you purchase consecutive tickets in the same name (a ticket book) worth at least $30, you start to receive free bonus tickets. For example, a $50 book gives you 7 chances to win instead of the 5 you’d get by purchasing individual tickets. You’ll also be adding another $80,000 in gold bullion to the grand prize if you’re holding that lucky winning ticket on December 21st.
