Whether you’re an urban dweller at heart or longing for the unspoilt beauty of the hinterland, the latest draw from yourtown has what you’re looking for. With draw 479, you’ll be able to choose between an immaculate two-bedroom apartment in Sydney’s affluent Balmain neighbourhood, or a gorgeous 4-bedroom home on the Sunshine Coast.
Both of these beautifully designed homes come with all furnishings and electricals, ready for you to move in or keep as an investment property. With the Sydney option, you’ll also have $50,000 in gold bullion to spend any way you please. The Sunshine Coast option gives you an extra $150,000 in gold bullion, so deciding which package to take isn’t going to be easy.
The first prize package is worth $1.6 million regardless of which home you choose, and with only 380,000 tickets available for sale this is a draw with great odds. Harbourfront or coastal vistas? It’s time to give that question some serious thought.
A Home in Mons
The small community of Mons is located just inland from Buderim in the hinterland of the Sunshine Coast. Mooloolaba is only 10 minutes away, close to some the nicest stretches of sand on the coast. Mooloolaba Beach lies on the sheltered side of Point Cartwright and a little further to the north, you’ll find Maroochydore beach which is patrolled by one of the oldest Surf Life Saving Clubs in Queensland. World-class boating, fishing, surfing and swimming will all be within easy reach of your front door.
Living in the hinterland also gives you unfettered access to a scenic tropical oasis. From your home in Mons, you can explore the quaint cafes, award-winning restaurants and local markets that draw visitors from all over the globe. The area is filled with artisans, galleries and vineyards that you can discover at your own pace. Trek through the rainforest, admire the waterfalls, and catch a glimpse of the native birds and wildlife that abound in these unspoiled hills. You’ll never get tired of finding a new spot from which to admire the Glass House Mountains, whether it’s from the top of a mountain or the patio of your favourite local winery.
Your home features a fabulous infinity pool with absolutely mesmerizing views of the surrounding countryside from on high. You’ll be spending plenty of time outdoors when you’ve got so many exterior living areas to choose from. Curl up in front of the fire on cool winter nights or enjoy movie night in the media room. There’s a place to do just about anything in this thoughtfully designed home, whether you need a quiet place to relax or are entertaining a group of friends. And with $150,000 in gold bullion to spend, you can probably afford a few extra toys as well!

A Home in Sydney
If a luxurious urban lifestyle is more your speed, you’ll want to check out the second option in draw 479. It's an exclusive apartment in Balmain with views of the harbour and a stylish design package. The residence is only 6 km from Sydney’s CBD, so you’ll be close to all the benefits of upscale downtown living.
Balmain was traditionally a working-class neighbourhood and the birthplace of the Australian Labor Party. You can still admire the dozens of heritage-listed buildings among the homes and apartments that now belong to some of the city’s most affluent residents. This is where foodies come to eat, and the suburb has established a well-deserved reputation for fine dining. From your trendy apartment, you’ll be able to walk to the Balmain Market, visit the cafes on Darling Street, or simply admire the view from your balcony.
The building is located within landscaped grounds that have direct access to the harbour. You’ll also have access to the facility’s infinity pool, gym and BBQ facilities. Everything you need to launch your new sophisticated urban lifestyle is included, and you’ll have $50,000 in gold bullion to spend. Imagine what you could park in your secure space, or the vacation you could take with that kind of spending money!
