Your chance to win a trip to Perth (left), or the Great Ocean Road (12 Apostles – right)

The first competition I cannot enter as I don’t meet the criteria (drat!), but if you have friends and relatives in Western Australia you can enter… There are 4 flight tickets (on Emirates), accommodation, trips, tours, spending money and more on offer — worth a total of AUD$24,000! More about this competition here. The entry form is here — just explain in 35 words why it should be you on your way to Western Australia. You’ve got ’til 13th October to enter. Amazing prize!

This second competition, however, is open to all (UK residents) from the lovely people at Frommers guidebooks —  a 10-day trip to Melbourne and Victoria could be yours (or in theory mine, as I have entered already!).

Flying to Australia on Ethiad, here’s exactly what you can win (sounds really really great itinerary — for both locations and hotels – some which are on my ‘hit list‘!). The Great Ocean Road and Grampians are stunning.

The lucky winners will fly with Etihad Airways to Melbourne where they will spend the first two nights at the Lindrum hotel.

On day three they’ll pick up a hire car and drive to the Mornington Peninsula, a region of vineyards, olive groves and farms, with the night spent at the Woodman Estate. After a night at Captains on the Bay at the popular seaside of Apollo Bay, they will drive along the most scenically magnificent stretch of the Great Ocean Road, passing the iconic Twelve Apostles rock formations.

You’ll spend a night at the Sebel in Warnambool before turning inland to the rugged volcanic Grampian Mountains where they’ll be plenty of opportunity to see wildlife as well as Aboriginal rock art sites, with two nights spent at the Royal Mail Hotel.

On then to the pretty town of Daylesford, another area famed for its excellent food and wine and natural springs, staying at the Lake House hotel before a final two nights beach in Melbourne at the Sebel Hotel, converted into a boutique hotel from a landmark 19th century building that used to be the Bank of Australia.

The prize also includes 6 days’ (medium) car hire.
Why not enter now?

The fab Melbourne and Victoria trip is being organised by the very knowledgeable (and lustful website and brochure producing) travel company Bridge & Wickers.

Good Luck!
