This is the one we’ve all been waiting for – the annual RSL Art Union Golden Treasure. Every year, the RSL gives you the chance to win an entire apartment complex along with a lifetime of financial freedom. This year that magnificent prize package is even better than ever. You could soon be moving into a luxury penthouse at Palm Beach, metres from the surf with unimpeded views of the ocean. You’ll be the proud owner of the entire building, with five two-bedroom apartments to rent out, providing a solid gold income for the rest of your life. Now that’s a Christmas you’ll never forget!
The Golden Treasure has always been something special, but this is Australia’s first ever $5 million prize home. The exclusive property is just 160 metres from the beach at the southern end of the Gold Coast and only ten minutes from the Gold Coast Airport. The immaculate penthouse apartment has four spacious bedrooms and an unbelievable furnishings and electricals package. The other five apartments are also fully furnished and ready to welcome your new tenants. Receive an annual income of around $171,000 a year if you decide to live in the penthouse, or over $238,000 if you choose to rent out all six apartments.

If you think that’s an incredible prize package, just wait until you see what’s waiting in the basement garage. Every apartment gets two secure car spaces, and yours will be filled with over $140,000 worth of opulent Audis. There’s an A3 Cabriolet for running about town with the top down and a Q3 Sport, the ultimate crossover for hitting the trails. Put it all together and you’ve got a life-changing lottery that’s bigger than anything Australia’s ever seen before.
You’re going to want to get your tickets early because with only 2,700,000 available, the Golden Treasure is bound to sell out quickly. Secure your chance at winning $5 million worth of luxury apartments and sports cars before the tickets are gone for good. Then just sit back and dream about you’d do with a new lifestyle that’s all about the sand, sun and surf of the highly desirable Gold Coast.
The Community of Palm Beach
Palm Beach spans a 4 kilometre stretch of coast that’s bordered to the north by Tallebudgera Creek and by Currumbin Creek to the south. A trio of patrolled areas provide safe places to swim on what has three times been voted the cleanest beach in Queensland.
The north end of this exclusive Gold Coast community is marked by the Burleigh Heads National Park which borders Tallebudgera Creek. This Gold Coast landmark provides walking trails through 27 hectares of rainforest, grassland, mangroves and coastal heath. If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to see humpback whales breaching in winter and early spring from the Oceanview track. A visit to the Jellurgal Aboriginal Cultural Centre will fill you in on the ancient history of the region’s first inhabitants, the Yugambeh Aboriginal people, with dreamtime stories about the creation of this culturally significant site.
Walking the length of Palm Beach will take you past a handful of the most select and luxurious properties on the Gold Coast. Some of the early coastal beach “shacks” can still be found on million-dollar blocks of land, flanked by exclusive homes and residential complexes. Tallebudgera Creek finds its way to the Coral Sea from the Springbrook Plateau near the border with New South Wales, with 25 kilometres of excellent fishing if you’re looking for bream, flathead or whiting. Currumbin Creek at the other end is about the same length and a popular stretch for rowing clubs and kayakers.
Currumbin Creek is also a wonderful place to swim, with a calm lagoon at its mouth providing a great spot to take the kids. And if you’ve got little ones in your life, there’s no better playground on the coast than the one you’ll find at Laguna Park. The park lies on the shores of a lake and has several picnic shelters and BBQ areas. If you’re moving into the Golden Treasure penthouse, you won’t have to go far to find a host of attractions, entertainment venues, golf courses, beaches and nature trails to keep you and your family amused.
Palm Beach has both a primary and secondary school and there are dozens of other educational facilities, including private and independent options, throughout the greater Gold Coast. Because this is such a magnet for visitors and foreign tourists, you’ll also be spoiled for choice when it comes to fine dining establishments, cafes, markets, shops, medical centres and other important services. Brisbane is only an hour away, but you’ll be able to find almost everything you need within a few kilometres of your Golden Treasure apartments.
The Luxurious Apartment Complex
Rudland’s Reach is a brand-new apartment complex, purpose built by the RSL. It’s only 160 metres from the beach and offers all tenants unimpeded views of the ocean.
The first level lobby provides access to the lift, first level apartment, and beautifully appointed residents’ pool. The pool area has a raised deck with comfortable seating and a shared BBQ area for cozy get togethers. Apartment #1 benefits from an oversized exterior balcony that wraps around the master suite and has plenty of room for both an al fresco and outside living area. Inside, the entrance opens onto a well-equipped kitchen that faces the central living and dining room. The master bedroom has a charming ensuite and expansive walk-in robe while the second bedroom accesses another full bathroom.
The second and third floors are identical, each housing two more two-bedroom apartments. Apartments #2 and #4 have a similar layout to apartment #1, with large balconies that can be accessed from both the mater suite and living area. Apartments #3 and #5 have smaller balconies which nonetheless have sufficient space for outdoor dining. Both layouts feature an open-concept living room, dining room and kitchen. All master bedrooms have an ensuite, with the larger apartments (#1, #2 and #4) including a soaking tub as well as a walk-in shower. In apartments #3 and #5, the tub is in the main bathroom.
The fourth-floor penthouse is simply stunning. The master bedroom sits at one end with a glamorous ensuite that has a soaking tub, walk-in shower and marbled twin sinks. There’s also a huge walk-in robe and sliding doors that lead onto the main balcony.
The master suite is separated from the other bedrooms by an expansive open living space that encompasses the lounge, dining room and kitchen. The kitchen has an enclosed pantry and breakfast island along with ample cupboards and counter space. The three remaining bedrooms are all well proportioned and two of them have access to a shared balcony with breathtaking views of the coast. There is also a third outdoor living area, a “winter deck” that sits on the opposite side of the dining room. Other amenities include a full bathroom, convenient powder room and enclosed laundry.
All of the apartments, including the luxurious penthouse, have been decorated with a distinctly coastal flair. Soft blues and timbered accents convey a casual elegance that is both warm and welcoming, making it easy to relax in your millionaire surroundings. The fixtures have also been carefully chosen to enhance the contemporary style and understated grandeur you’ll find in every room.
Wander down to the basement garage and you’ll see fourteen spaces. There’s enough room for each tenant to house two vehicle with two places left over for visitors. Yours, however, will be filled with over $140,000 worth of Audis…

The automatic retractable roof opens and closes in just 18 seconds, so you’ll draw admiring looks before even turning the key in the engine.

Driving up to Surfers Paradise for the day will be just a good excuse to drop the top and feel the ocean breeze in your hair.
Your second car is an Audi Q3 Sport, valued at just over $65,000. This model arrived on the market in 2011 and the latest version is a second generation Q3. This classy vehicle is the perfect combination of a stylish coupe and compact SUV that will take you just about anywhere in elegant comfort. The quattro all-wheel drive system was an absolute game-changer when it first came out back in 1980 and still sets the bar for safety, stability and handling in all driving conditions. The interior is all about leather seats, dual zone climate control and a state-of-the-art navigation system. Whether you’re heading for the hinterland, the city or the coast, your new Q3 sport is sure to be the perfect match for your new millionaire lifestyle.
A Tribute to Sergeant Peter Rudland
This year’s Golden Treasure is proudly named in tribute to Sergeant Peter Rudland, a co-captain of the Australian team and gold medallist at the Invictus Games in 2017.
Sergeant Rudland joined the Australian army in 1989 and served for the next 28 years. He was deployed to Cambodia, Iraq, Timor Leste and Afghanistan. In June 2010, Peter was on board a Black Hawk helicopter en route to a Taliban target near Chenartu. Just a few minutes from their destination, the chopper was brought down killing three Australian commandos and a US soldier. Peter was thrown from the crash and woke up in a German hospital having broken almost every major bone in his body.
After a long period of rehabilitation in Western Australia, Peter began to recover from his injuries, but the former triathlete missed a regimen of training and sporting achievement. He discovered recumbent cycling after a visit to the Warrior Games in the United States, and in 2016 he joined the Australian team at the Invictus Games in Florida.

In 2017, Peter once again participated in the Invictus Games, this time as a co-captain of the Australian team. He won the gold medal in both the Men’s recumbent bike IRECB1 criterium and time trail and played on the wheelchair rugby squad. Just last month, Peter again competed in both recumbent cycling and rugby when the games were held in Sydney. The home team took the gold medal in wheelchair rugby after a heart stopping match against the United Kingdom.
The Invictus Games were created by Prince Harry, modelled on the US Warrior Games that enable wounded members of the armed services to compete in sports. “Invictus” means “undefeated” in Latin, and Peter Rudland is the embodiment of that unconquerable spirit. Rudland’s Reach is a testament to the determination and character that mark both his achievements and the essence of the Invictus Games.

This is a great opportunity to explore the area around Palm Beach and get a feel for what may soon be your new home!
You’ll find Rudland’s Reach at 1449 Gold Coast Highway, Palm Beach, QLD 4221. Bring the family and make the most of your day at the beach.
An Income for Life
Winning the Golden Treasure isn’t just about moving into a luxurious new home. Owning an entire apartment block means you’ll have a guaranteed income for life and won’t ever again have to worry about making mortgage payments.
If you decide to move into the penthouse at Rudland’s Reach and rent out the five two-bedroom apartments, you can expect to receive an estimated rental income of around $171,080 a year. If you choose to rent out the entire building, that income will climb to about $238,680. That should be enough to fund any number of things you’ve got hanging around on your wish list, including an early retirement if you just want to relax at the beach!
You’ve also got the option of moving into one of the smaller apartments yourself and renting out the penthouse to boost your income. You’ll still get all the benefits that come with owning the building while maximizing the return on your windfall.
Of course, putting the entire building on the market will make you an overnight multi-millionaire. You can still keep the Audis to take you wherever it is you want to go with your new-found wealth.
Get Your Ticket Books Before They’re Gone
The RSL $5 Million Golden Treasure will be given away in draw 361 and ticket books provide you with more chances to win. Once you make a minimum $30 purchase, you’ll start to receive bonus tickets and any one of those could win you the keys to the incredible apartment complex in Palm Beach.
