The latest draw from the Endeavour Foundation could have you waking up in a beautiful hinterland home on the Sunshine Coast come Christmas morning. This residence is situated on a sprawling hectare of land that includes a small creek and plenty of verdant bush. The design is eco-friendly, with roof-mounted solar panels and a footprint that fits in perfectly with the natural surrounds. Located just 15 minutes from Coolum Beach and the famous Eumundi Markets.
The first prize package includes a couple of other terrific surprises as well. First off, there’s a Jayco caravan that will give you the freedom to explore the country in absolute comfort. Then there’s a John Deere ride on mower that will make keeping the grass down a pleasure instead of a chore. Throw in cashable gold bullion to cover your rates and you’ve got a draw that’s too good to pass up.
If you’re looking for decadent luxury on the Sunshine Coast but still want to enjoy your privacy, draw 418 might be just the ticket!
The Tranquility of the Hinterland
The prize home is located in Valdora, a hinterland community that’s about 15 minutes inland from Coolum Beach. This is a quiet neighbourhood of detached houses with a population of under 1,000 residents. The Maroochy River winds along its southern border with the Coolum Creek Conservation Park and Mount Coolum National Park separating Valdora from the coast.
If you want to play in the surf or throw a towel down on the sand, you can head for Coolum Beach. It’s one of the most popular stretches of white sand on the Sunshine Coast but still maintains a laid-back and family-friendly feel. Enjoy the free BBQ facilities and bring your body board because these are some of the most consistent waves on the coast. If golf is more your thing, you’ll be spoiled for choice with so many world-class courses within minutes of your new home.
Heading inland, you’ll get a fine view of the surrounds from the Mt Ninderry Lookout. When you’re done trying to spot your property, you can wander through the quaint villages of the hinterland, go for a walk in the rainforest, or relax in one of the many local cafes and pubs throughout the area. This region is a magnet for artists, craftspeople and organic farmers, and you’ll soon find your favourites among the local markets and boutique shops.
You’ll have all the time in the world to explore if you’re the lucky winner in draw 418, and with that Jayco caravan waiting in the drive, who knows where your next adventure might lead?

Tickets Now Available
If you want to increase your chances for a Christmas you’ll never forget, your best bet is to purchase a ticket book. Individual tickets are $10 each, but when you buy a book the price of each ticket goes down. That means more chances for the same price if you purchase sequential tickets in the same name. For instance, a $50 book will give you ten tickets. That’s the equivalent of getting 5 for free or paying only half price for each chance to win the $1.1 million first prize!
