A fresh year always comes with the promise of new opportunities, and you’re not going to want to let this one drift by. The Surf Life Saving Lottery is now offering a $1.2 million home in Mountain Creek, right in the middle of all the spectacular sights and attractions of the Sunshine Coast.
The luxurious waterfront residence in draw #185 gives you the best of summer living all year long. It’s ideally located for day trips to Noosa and afternoons spent rambling through the hinterland. To get you in the right mood for the relaxed feel of the Coast, the first prize package also includes a Vespa scooter and a surfboard. Are you catching the vibe yet?
Get to Know Mountain Creek
This coastal suburb is adjacent to Mooloolaba and only ten minutes from beautiful Kawana Beach. It’s a planned community that has been built around several inland waterways that grace the opulent homes which line its many canals and lakes. This is a playground for wealthy millionaires, and you could soon join their exclusive ranks.
From your waterfront home, you’ll be within easy driving distance of all of the magic that draws so many tourists to the Sunshine Coast every year. If you like to golf, you can explore a different world-class course every day of the week, and marvel at trying to find the green against a backdrop of sea and surf. Any number of tour operators will take you fishing, and if you’re an avid surfer, you’ve come to the right place. The kids in your life will love a visit to Sea Life, and they’ll be begging to go back to the Australia Zoo for another look at the crocodiles. If you like nothing better than a leisurely nature walk, Noosa National Park will give you plenty to look at, and a lovely place to swim at the end of your journey.
The best thing about living in Mountain Creek is that you can discover all this and more at your own pace. No rushing about to make the most of a short holiday, trying to see everything at once. You’ll be a local – and that means endless access to a myriad of activities, fine dining, boutique shopping and sightseeing. You’ll also enjoy all of the amenities you’d expect to find in a community that caters to those who have come to enjoy the finer things in life.
A Home Fit for a Millionaire
The prize home in SLS draw #185 is a modern gem with a host of stunning designer features. The first thing you’ll notice is its fabulous curb appeal, with a recessed entry behind a meticulously landscaped garden. Behind that front door awaits an open plan dining, kitchen and living area that’s awash with natural light. Upstairs, you’ll find four large bedrooms, with a private balcony off the master suite.
The common areas are also thoughtfully appointed, with a separate lounge/media room and a streamlined study. The design and furniture package is valued at $138,610 so you can be sure that all the fittings and furnishings have been carefully selected for their quality, visual appeal and comfort.
The outside living areas are equally welcoming, with lots of space to enjoy the fabled Sunshine Coast weather. There’s a crystal-clear pool in the backyard with a triple-waterfall feature, bordered by an alfresco with a BBQ and adjoining seating area. The waterway lies just on the other side of the ironwork fence, with a path alongside if you feel like a stroll.
If you’re looking for luxury in one of the most sought-after communities on the Sunshine Coast, this is the draw you’ve been waiting for.

Come for a Tour, Stay for the Weekend
The prize home in the Surf Life Saving Lottery draw #185 will be open for inspection from December 11, 2017 through to February 18, 2018. The $1.2 million-dollar residence is located at 9 Petrel Crescent, Mountain Creek QLD 4557. Drop in anytime between 10am and 5pm, seven days a week, but note that the home will be closed on Christmas day.
Take advantage of your trip to the Sunshine Coast by doing some exploring. Mooloolaba Beach is just a few minutes away, as is Kawana Beach. Visit neighbouring Maroochydore and Caloundra to browse through the markets, and be sure to treat yourself in one of their delightful coastal cafes. Head on up to Noosa for the sights of Hastings Street, or stop along the way at one of the many roadside attractions. This could soon all be in your own backyard, but it’s never too early to get a taste of your new life.
A Solid Investment in the Future
If you’re ready to make the move to Mountain Creek, this home is certainly ready to welcome you. Everything is included, right down to that surfboard and Vespa scooter.
On the other hand, you may need a little more time to trade your present life for a millionaire lifestyle on the Sunshine Coast. If that’s the case, renting out the property will bring you a tidy annual income of over $50,000. That should help pay off a few bills and knock down your current mortgage in the interim. The rental market in this area is one of strongest in Queensland, with a vacancy rate of only 1.4 percent which means no problem finding suitable tenants.
Many lottery winners choose to sell right away, but renting for awhile or selling down the road helps to build a growing nest egg. The average house prices in Mountain Creek have risen by over 18% in the last five years, and trend is expected to continue. Upgrades are coming to the Bruce Highway, and this community will then come within easy commuting distance of Brisbane. That’s only going to heighten demand and raise prices over the coming years.
Purchase Your Tickets for Added Prizes
Buying a single ticket will give you a chance to win this fabulous waterfront home, but buying multiple tickets lowers the price and gives you more chances overall.
