Home for the holidays could take on a whole new meaning if you’ve got tickets in draw 184 of the surf lottery. On offer is an outstanding apartment in Surfer’s Paradise with unobstructed views up and down the Gold Coast. That’s over a million-dollars worth of luxury in one of the country’s most sought-after holiday resorts. You’ll be looking down on the white sands and sparkling blue ocean from the comfort of your balcony, or through any of the floor to ceiling windows that grace all rooms in your new home.
If you’ve always wanted a fabulous hideaway in the heart of the Gold Coast, this is the draw you’ve been waiting for.
Surfer’s Paradise – The Heart of the Gold Coast
You can see the world-famous skyline of Surfer’s Paradise from miles away in either direction on the Gold Coast. It’s towering high rises began to go up in 1959, starting with the Kinkabool which is now a heritage listed building. You’ll easily spot the Q1, the tallest building in Australia, by its distinctive spire. The apartments and hotels along the shore draw millions of visitors every year to what is indisputably one of the top attractions in the country for international tourists.
Surfer’s is the centre of tourism and entertainment on the Gold Coast. The east side attracts families to a host of theme parks and amusements, while the west is given over to more adult entertainment. The “Nightlife Precinct” is packed with restaurants and bars and is known as the country’s nightlife capital. Over 20,000 visitors come out to play every evening, and you’ll never be short of new venues to visit.
The first prize apartment is located right on Surfer’s Paradise Boulevard, just a few minutes away from the massive pedestrian mall. There’s a tram station right outside the door which can take you to all the other attractions and features of the Gold Coast. If you ever tire of watching the waves, you can explore the natural beauty of the hinterland and the area’s many parks and wildlife preserves.
The Gold Coast lifestyle is all about kicking the sand off your feet and plunging into a world of luxury and leisure. Golf, fish, swim, sail, and surf in that special part of Queensland that everyone in the world wants to visit, but only a lucky few get to call home. All it takes is one lucky ticket.
Impeccable Design and Furnishings
The apartment won’t be open for public inspection prior to the draw, so here are some extra mouth-watering details to whet your appetite for winning.
The living room, dining area and kitchen are all integrated into one open space that is entirely surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows. Look outside, and all you see is the clear blue sky and dazzling ocean. The Gramercy pedestal dining table is complemented by padded Leo dining chairs so that you can linger for hours over that second bottle of wine. Move to the couch and you’ll sink into the comfort of a Calvin Klein sofa. From there, pick up the converter off the marble coffee table and watch whatever you fancy on a TLC 55” UHD Smart Android television – if you can tear yourself away from the view.
This home is packed with design features and superior quality furnishings and appliances. You’ll find everything you could possibly want in a kitchen that’s sleek, stylish and ultra-modern. Even peeling vegetables will feel like a treat when you’re surrounded by the beauty of the sand and water below you.
You’ll likely never tire of the view from your own balcony, but if you want a panoramic look at the entire Gold Coast, you can head on up to the sky deck on level 41. You can see to the far horizon in every direction, a thrill you can repeat as often as you like as an exclusive owner of an apartment at the Rhapsody.

3440 Surfer’s Paradise Boulevard, Surfer’s Paradise QLD 4217
The first prize apartment in the heart of the Gold Coast won’t be available for public inspection prior to the draw. You can still come by and admire its spectacular location, however, and see for yourself why the “Rhapsody” is such a desirable residence. Spend the day exploring all the famous sights and attractions, and enjoy an evening of entertainment in the famed Nightlife Precinct. Its never too early to become a regular.
A Fantastic Investment in Your Future
If you’re the lucky ticket holder who gets to pick up the keys to a flat in Surfer’s, you’ll be having a very merry Christmas indeed. Once you get your feet under the table in the lounge and get your first glimpse of the surf, we’re guessing you’ll want to move right in.
You may have other commitments, however, and wish to rent out the property in either the short or long term. If so, the home will net you a tidy income of $43,000 a year. The vacancy rate in the area is a very tight 1.7 percent, so you won’t have any problem finding the right tenants for your beautiful apartment.
Over the longer term, this property will only increase in value. House prices on the Gold Coast went up by an average of 6.4 percent over the last year, and there’s no reason to believe that trend won’t continue. This means that if you hang onto the apartment, either by renting it or living in it yourself, you’ll get an even larger prize over time if you eventually choose to sell.
Then there’s the possibility of simply selling now. If you want to become an instant millionaire and enjoy all that goes along with that kind of financial security, the option to put it on the market right away is available as well.
