Many prize homes offer a relaxed, coastal lifestyle in a dozen enviable locations on the Gold or Sunshine Coasts. The first draw of the year from Mater, however, is giving you the opportunity to experience something a little different. It’s a stylish, luxury-laden apartment in the Emporium Residences, part of the Emporium Hotel complex brought to you by Australia’s most awarded boutique hotel. If there was a standard that soared above first class, you’d find it here.
The home looks out over the Brisbane skyline, with three bedrooms, an incredible gourmet kitchen and an expansive living area. You’ll be residing in an opulent five-star hotel, with access to all the amenities and services provided to their exclusive clientele. That includes industry-leading fitness facilities and a rooftop infinity pool with million-dollar views.

Living in South Bank
As the name suggests, South Bank is a precinct on the southern banks of the Brisbane River and a go-destination for fine dining and cultural attractions. It covers about 17 hectares, with verdant parklands and some of the finest homes in the city. The area is blessed with multiple walking and cycling trails that provide beautiful views of the river and parklands. You’ll come to love strolling the kilometre-long Arbour, with its 443 posts covered in magenta bougainvillea flowers, and there are multiple areas where you can swim for free throughout the neighbourhood. Be sure to check out the Nepalese Pagoda. The Kingdom of Nepal created it for the World Expo 88 and it has found a permanent home in the South Bank parklands.
South Bank is also proud to be the cultural heart of Brisbane. It’s home to the Queensland Performing Arts Centre, the Queensland Museum and Science Centre, the Maritime Museum and the State Library. The Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) features touring exhibitions, indigenous Australian art and an impressive permanent collection of international works. If you’re living at the Emporium, you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to cultural venues and special events.
If you can tear yourself away from your gourmet kitchen, South Bank is filled with an array of fine dining establishments. Head for Stanley Street if you’re looking for casual dining options or a cozy café. If you want to sample the finest restaurants in the city, you’ll find them at River Quay and your meal will likely be accompanied by stunning water-front views.
The bottom line is that if you’re the lucky winner of draw 281, you’ll have to get used to a whole new level of refinement. You’ll be living in the lap of luxury and have access to the best that Brisbane has to offer – and all within easy reach of the city centre.
The Residence at the Emporium
The Emporium Hotel South Bank was completed in 2018, with 143 luxury suites spread over 21 levels. The Emporium Apartments are part of the final stage of the Southpoint precinct development, offering unparalleled luxury and access to the award-winning hotel amenities and services.
The prize home is beautifully laid out with a central living area separating the master suite from the other two large bedrooms. The master is connected to an ensuite by a long walk-through robe and has panoramic views of the cityscape and access to the alfresco balcony.
The real jewel of the home is its superb gourmet kitchen. There’s a marbled central island with a double sink and plenty of counterspace to accommodate your inner chef. It’s equipped with Gaggenau appliances, two wine fridges, and sleek timbered cupboards. Serve your guests in the roomy dining area or on the al fresco, looking out over the lights of the city.
Living in a luxury hotel comes with a lot of perks. You’ll have full access to the 23-metre infinity pool on the roof, the gym, the steam room and the sauna. The hotel also has its own restaurants, bistro and piano bar if you don’t feel like cooking but can’t be bothered leaving the building.
Don’t want to live in an apartment that’s tied to 5-star hotel services? The estimated rental income on this apartment is $98,800 a year. How’s that for a second income or an excuse to chuck your job? If you’re looking for a multi-millionaire lifestyle or a six-figure second income, you’ll want to get your tickets for draw 281 before they’re gone.
