Winning a $1.6 million prize home would put a smile on anyone’s face, but that good fortune is all the sweeter when you get to choose where you’d like to live. If you love your urban distractions and want to live in the middle of where it’s happening, a home in Richmond might be just what you’re looking for. If you’d rather just get away from it all, how about a hilltop retreat on the Gold Coast? The choice is entirely yours in yourtown draw 478.

The first option is a newly constructed townhouse in Richmond, close to Melbourne’s CBD and tons of shopping, cafes, restaurants and bistros. You can walk to whatever’s on at the MCG and come home to the lap of luxury. Your other choice is a beautifully appointed home in the hills of Mudgeeraba, fifteen minutes from the beach and just a few more to Surfer’s Paradise. Privacy, absolute tranquility, and a view you won’t believe.

Both first prize options are enhanced with a very healthy dose of gold bullion. You’ll get an extra $100,000 with the Gold Coast retreat and a whopping $180,000 if you decide that you prefer Melbourne. Either way, it’s a $1.6 million package that opens the door to endless possibilities.
