Mountain Creek is named for the trickle of water that flows down the southern slope of Mount Buderim before draining into the Mooloolaba River. It is home to about 6,000 lucky residents and if you’re holding the winning ticket in Surf Life Saving draw #182, you could soon be one of them.
The prize is a distinctive family home worth over $1.1 million dollars, right in the heart of the Sunshine Coast. The short drive from the Sunshine Coast airport at Marcoola makes 16 Riviera Place the perfect getaway for all that this sought-after area has to offer.
The Sunshine Coast: Natural Wonders in a Beach-Lover’s Paradise
The Sunshine Coast, which begins about an hour north of Brisbane, runs for approximately 60 km from Pelican Waters to Tewantin. It is a veritable playground for anyone who loves the beach, fishing or getting out on the water. Over 3 million visitors flock to the Sunshine Coast every year, from all parts of the globe, to enjoy both its natural beauty and man-made attractions.
You know you’ve arrived when you catch a glimpse of the impressive Glasshouse Mountains. This is a group of eleven hills which rise abruptly to create a unique and intriguing pattern across the otherwise flat landscape. These volcanic peaks were so named by Captain James Cook because they reminded him of the glass furnaces in his native Yorkshire. The region is home to more National Parks than anywhere else in the State, ensuring that its natural beauty will remain unspoilt for generations to come.
The beaches of the Sunshine Coast rival the hinterland for top billing on the list of things to see in the area. They stretch the length of the coast in an almost unbroken line; expanses of pristine white sand as far as the eye can see.
While most people plan for months or even years to visit this world-renown part of Australia, you could be one of the fortunate people who get to live here year-round. Getting your tickets in the Surf Life Saving Draw #182 is the first step to making that happen.
The Easy Life in Mountain Creek
Surrounded by the charm and rich culture of the Sunshine Coast’s many intimate communities, you won’t be short of things to do in your new neighbourhood.
Just off the Bruce Highway, you can discover the Eumundi Market, billed as Australia’s best arts, crafts and produce market. You can even bring along something of your own to sell as long as you made it, baked it, designed it or grew it. It’s open every Saturday and Wednesday mornings, with musicians, street performers and lots of activities for the kids.
If you’re looking for adventure, nearby Mooloolaba’s got Underwater World or you can visit the home of our legendary “Crocodile Hunter”, Steve Irwin, at the Australia Zoo in Beerwah.
The region is absolutely packed with restaurants, nightlife, cafes, and entertainment options. No matter how you choose to spend your day (or night), the Sunshine Coast won’t disappoint.

What Are You Going to do with your Sunshine Coast Getaway Home?
If you’re ready to move to one of the country’s premier residential destinations, then this home is ready for you. Expertly designed, fully furnished, and just waiting for you to collect the keys. If you’re not quite prepared for a complete change of pace, however, you have plenty of other options for making the most of your windfall.
First of all, you could keep the house and use it for holidays and long-weekends. It is located a short drive from the Sunshine Coast airport, making the trip to your new holiday home easy and hassle-free. If you happen to live in Brisbane, you’re less than 100km from your second front door.
If you decide to rent the home until you’re ready to enjoy living there yourself or want to create an additional income stream, you can expect to receive $44,200 per annum if you rent it out fully furnished. You won’t have any problems finding eager tenants as vacancy rates are low and the housing market in the region is very tight.
Over the long-term, this home is an excellent investment. House prices in Mountain Creek and surrounding communities have risen sharply over the past few years. There are improvements coming soon to the Bruce Highway, which is going to bring Mountain Creek within easy commuting distance of Brisbane. When that happens, house prices are only going to soar with the rise in demand.
So, you might want to think about hanging onto to this home for a few more years, to reap the full benefit of your amazing prize.

Surf Life Saving
We think of Australia as being a large and diverse nation with a huge land mass. But we’re also an island, which means all that land is surrounded by coastline. That’s more than 35,000 km of coastline to be precise.
We’re also a nation of people who like to go to the beach. And who wouldn’t with the thousands of beautiful sand-covered destinations we have to choose from. Most of us live within easy reach of the coast, and there are over 100 million beach visitations each year.
Since 1907, our safety has depended on the vigilance, experience, and skill of Surf Lifesavers. They belong to some 313 clubs that operate in all coastal parts of Australia. Whenever you swim between those red and yellow flags, you know that these dedicated men and women are looking out for you. That’s over 160,000 volunteers.
The Surf Life Saving Lotteries, including the six prize home lotteries a year, raise vital funds to keep them (and us) afloat. Your participation funds the purchase of rescue gear and equipment, training, first aid supplies and surf safety community education programs.
We wish all of you the best of luck in Draw #182 and thank you for your support of this life-saving cause.
