The latest yourtown draw gives you the option of living in one of Sydney’s most storied neighbourhoods, or in a luxurious three-bedroom apartment on the Gold Coast’s Miami Beach. Both come with a chunk of gold bullion and include all the furnishings, appliances and fees for the first year. The total prize package is worth over $1.6 million, so either way you’ll be sitting pretty if you’re the lucky winner of draw #471.

Discover Sydney’s Annandale

Sydney is full of attractive, quirky and distinct communities, and this one is truly charming. Annandale is just a few kilometres from Circular Quay and the bustle of the city centre, but has the feel of a cozy neighbourhood. The residential streets are quiet, tree-lined, and home to some fine examples of colonial architecture. The suburb has been around for a long time, and has always been a very desirable place to live.

If you love your music, you may have heard of the famous Annandale Hotel. It’s been the venue of some legendary concerts by both native and international performers, and the locals have fought hard to preserve it from demolition. The district also has several recording studios and is still a magnet for musicians of all genres.

Annandale has a strong coffee house tradition, and you’ll also be drawn to the huge selection of speciality shops and fine dining. You’ll be an easy walk from the bus stop if you ever need to leave this picturesque neighbourhood to explore all the other attractions that draw so many visitors to Sydney’s marvelous waterfront.

A Comfortable Modern Terrace Home

The Sydney option is a gleaming white terrace on a quiet Annandale street lined with trees. A pocket front garden separates the home from the curb and the front path leads to a lovely al fresco where you can sip your morning latte and watch the world go by.

The Other Miami Beach

Most people have heard of Florida’s historic beach with its art deco trendiness and huge crowds, but Australia’s Gold Coast suburb of the same name has a bit more to recommend it. Here you’ll find miles of clean white sand, rolling surf, and plenty of elbow room. You can swim, fish, surf, or take your boat onto the water for a lazy day of marine sightseeing. Now this is the Miami you’re going to want to call home.

The suburb lies a few kilometres from the edge of New South Wales, at the southern end of the Gold Coast. You can admire the skyline of Surfer’s Paradise from your front balcony and are within easy reach of all the region’s popular attractions. Enjoy the community green spaces, many sporting facilities, and attractive shops and restaurants and the FCS II Fins.

Whether you’re ready to move to full-time resort living or looking for a holiday home with a spectacular ocean view, you’re going to want to think hard about choosing the Miami option in this fantastic draw.
