If living in a trendy Sydney home near the vibrant hub of the city is your idea of perfection, then you might as well dream big. How about a two-bedroom home in Kensington, tucked into a brand-new prize-winning residential development? Manicured gardens, a tropical lap pool, and other resort-style amenities just minutes from Sydney’s CBD. No parking hassles, tons to do and the whole city at your feet. Sound good?
On the other hand, you may be yearning for a home on the coast with the ocean just steps from your front door. If so, you’re welcome to choose a stunning beach house on the Gold Coast instead of the urban option. Relax in a three-bedroom home that was built for sun, sand and surf-loving fun. You’ll be just down the road from Surfers Paradise with all the attractions of the coast waiting to be explored.
Whether you choose the Kensington residence or the one in Palm Beach, you’ll also walk away with a pile of gold bullion if you’re the lucky winner in draw 481. The Sydney package comes with an additional $100,000 in gold bullion while the Gold Coast home will net you an eye-popping $600,000 in gold. Imagine the lifestyle you could enjoy with that kind of cash in the location that’s just right for you!
This is the draw for anyone who wants both property AND gold, with a first prize package worth $1.6 million and a choice of homes. Get your tickets early, because with only 400,000 on offer they’re going fast.
The Best of Urban Living
If you’ve ever strolled through Kensington, you’ve probably felt that unique vibe you get from a student community that’s bursting with energy. This is where you’ll find the University of New South Wales and all the features and services geared to trendy urban living. There are tons of cafes, shops and restaurants along Anzac Parade and no shortage of things to do in the evening.
If you like to be out of doors, the neighbourhood has six parks and borders the Centennial Parklands, Sydney’s favourite picnic destination. Walk the French medieval labyrinth, let your dog run off-leash over 154 hectares reserved just for them, or take the kiddies to the Wild Play garden. Next door in Moore Park you’ll find a championship golf course, riding stables and even an urban winery.
They say location is everything when it comes to real estate, and your new home couldn’t be in a better spot. The Sydney CBD is just 6 kilometres away, and you can get to the beach or the airport in fifteen minutes. Treks around town will become even more convenient with the introduction of light rail. A stop is scheduled to be built right in front of your lobby entrance making the whole city easily accessible if you want to leave the car at home.
This truly is the best of urban living, in an exclusive suburb that blends modern convenience with historic charm. You’ll be living in a world class city in a million-dollar home that offers residents all the extras you’d expect to find in a holiday resort. Then there’s the additional $100,000 that you can spend any way you want or stash away for the future. Now that’s something worth getting excited about!

A New Home on the Gold Coast
If you’ve had your fill of city living, you may not be interested in an urban home, no matter how opulent or perfectly located. If that’s the case, the second option in draw 481 is sure to appeal. This is a three-bedroom beach house on the Gold Coast that’s just steps from the surf and miles away from the pavement of the city.
Palm Beach is about half an hour to the south of Surfers Paradise and is perhaps best know for being a multiple winner of the “Cleanest Beach in Queensland” award. It’s just one of over a dozen beaches within ten minutes of your new home but will likely be a favourite because it’s only 100 steps from your front door. You can look forward to endless days of swimming, surfing, fishing and boating in an area that’s geared towards fun and relaxation.
The Gold Coast hinterland is also likely to beckon with its quaint village markets, boutique shopping and unparalleled walks through the rainforest. Whether you like waterfalls or water fowl, the natural beauty of this very special part of the country is right at your back.
It will be easy to stay active as you enjoy your new beach house with so many attractions in the immediate vicinity. Golf at a championship course, jog the numerous boardwalks along the coast, or join in on an impromptu match of beach volleyball with your new neighbours. If sipping a cold one and watching the world go by is more your speed, you can do plenty of that as well in any of the beach front cafes and bars.
You’ll also be able to afford pretty much any kind of entertainment you fancy with a massive $600,000 in gold bullion included in the Palm Beach prize option. Treat yourself to a boat, a jet ski or a ride that will let you savour the ocean breeze with the top down. Beach front living could be just around the corner if you’re the lucky winner in draw 481 – and there’s no better place to enjoy your good fortune than from the deck of your luxurious Gold Coast home.
Your Palm Beach Home
The prize home in Palm Beach has three bedrooms that span three levels of understated elegance. The striking design package is tailored to your beach lifestyle while spoiling you with absolute comfort. The home is a new build, which means contemporary architecture, terrific curb appeal, and state of the art fixtures.
The spacious interior is cleverly designed to maximize privacy and make the most of your proximity to the ocean. The ground floor houses two bedrooms, a full bathroom and a separate laundry room. From here you have access to both a private courtyard and a cozy outdoor patio. Upstairs you’ll find a large open concept living area with a sleek kitchen, plush lounge and spacious dining room. This opens onto the al fresco deck where you can enjoy the ocean breeze as you dine beneath the stars.
The top floor is reserved for the loft-like master bedroom with its fabulous ensuite and massive walk-in robe. You’ll have views of the ocean and a cozy retreat where you can plan your next adventure-filled day on the Gold Coast.
The entire home has high ceilings, lots of windows and an abundance of natural light. It’s all been designed to make you feel completely at ease, with furnishings that add warmth and colour to your luxurious beach house.
