You could be living in a restored heritage home in the centre of Sydney, or gazing at the spectacular views of the coast from your new abode on Tamborine Mountain. Luxurious city living or the relaxed pace of the Gold Coast hinterland – your choice.
The first prize package in draw #470 is worth $1.69 million. If you choose the Tamborine Mountain home, that includes half a million dollars worth of gold bullion. Both homes are luxurious, come fully furnished, and include everything right down to the transfer fees. Start dreaming big because this is the draw that could change your life.
The Charm of Rozelle
The inner-city suburb of Rozelle lies just to the west of Sydney’s central core. It’s a historic district, surrounded by bays and flanked by the Parramatta River. This long-established community is filled with peaceful leafy streets, just 4 kilometres from the bustle of Circular Quay. It’s home to just under 9,000 residents who live on some of the priciest real estate in the country.
People from all over Sydney come to Rozelle on the weekends to browse the famous outdoor markets. They’re held year-round, every Saturday and Sunday, on the grounds of the Rozelle Public School. The school itself is on the Register of the National Estate, a beautiful sandstone building constructed in 1877. It’s a perfect venue for hosting the stalls that sell all manner of second-hand goods, antiques, fashionwear, jewelry and art. There are also plenty of international food stalls where you can stop for a leisurely bite or stock up for the coming week.
Darling street is a short walk from the prize home’s front door, filled with cafes and restaurants. If you’re looking for even more variety, the bright lights of downtown Sydney are just over the Anzac Bridge. If you choose the Sydney option in draw #470, you’ll be living in the heart of it all, in an upscale historic neighbourhood that’s on the cusp of a modern metropolis.

Or…You Can Retreat to the Gold Coast
The second option in yourtown draw #470 is a modern masterpiece in Eagle Heights, with million-dollar views of the Gold Coast from every window. This retreat on Tambourine Mountain is perfect if you’re looking for a serene hideaway that’s still just a short drive from the beach.
Eagle Heights is located in the Gold Coast hinterland, approximately parallel to the coastal suburb of Biggera Waters. Roughly 7,000 people live on Tamborine Mountain, settled across a plateau of rich volcanic soil that was left by the Mount Warning volcanic eruption millions of years ago. It’s a popular destination for birders and is famous for the walking tracks that wind through the rainforest.
The Long Road in Tamborine Mountain is lined with art galleries, boutique shopping, restaurants and cafes. The area is also filled with wineries, and you’ll want to enjoy a glass of the local vintage from the comfort of your hillside lookout.
If you tire of the greenery, there’s pristine white sand only 35km away. You’ve got some of the finest beaches in the world within easy reach, and the glamour of Surfer’s is just down the road. If you’re looking for a home in a natural setting that’s on the doorstep of Australia’s most famous playground, this is the option for you.
