What’s included in the $10,000 prize?

Your adventure in Australia’s Red Centre starts in the capital city of Darwin, an underrated destination that sits in summer year-round and might just be one of Australia’s best-kept secrets. Check into your guest room at the centrally located Hilton Darwin, where you’re booked in for five nights, and admire the waterfront views before taking in the city on a Casino Royale Jet Ski tour – all included in the prize. Cruise around the harbour’s turquoise waters and expect to skim over WW2 wrecks and maybe (if you're lucky) get up close to some dolphins, before settling in for a night of harbour-front dining at one of the city’s best restaurants

For more adventures in Darwin, go croc watching on the included Jumping Crocs and Nature Adventure, or learn about the rich and varied stories of Darwin’s traditional custodians on an authentic Indigenous cultural tour. Take advantage of having a car and day trip it to the nearby Litchfield National Park where you’ll be booked in for a scenic helicopter flight (including the chance to land on top of your own private waterfall). For your final night, head out on your included Champagne Sunset Sail where you can kick back and toast over the vivid hues of the setting sun. 

After five jam-packed days in Darwin, take the short drive to Kakadu where you’ll check into a luxury glamping tent at Cooinda Lodge for your final two-night stay. For anyone who claims they don’t like camping, expect to be won over the minute you step foot into your Outback Retreat tent which comes fitted with a double bed, soft linens and a wooden deck where you can park yourself for a night of stargazing. Spend your time exploring the lush rainforest of Kakadu National Park which is teeming with wildlife and take the included two-hour Yellow Water Billabong Cruise where you’ll wind through the region’s wetlands and spot rare Australian bird species, including whistling ducks and magpie geese.
