Exploring the Gold Coast

Mater Prize Home lottery No. 271 is giving you the chance to kick up your feet and soak in some rays. When you're done exploring your gorgeous new canal-front home, you can start planning all the adventures that await… after all, winning this prize doesn't just mean winning a home, it means winning a lifestyle.

The Gold Coast is the ultimate holiday destination but can you imagine living here?! For one lucky person that could become a reality, so this week we thought we'd give you a taste of all the Gold Coast has to offer.
Nature reserved and beachside walks

What better way to start your day than by breathing in the fresh air while you sail through your new resort-style waterfront community to the untouched natural reserve of South Stradbroke Island.
Stunning native bushland awaits your exploring, along with calm waterways and 22 kilometres of pristine beach. And the best part is the quiet that comes with it, you can take an undisturbed beachside walk for as long as you want and might also spot a whale or two in the cooler months.
Local beaches and eats
Beaches and food, beaches and food. We hope you like food and dipping your toes in the water, because there is an endless amount of restaurants, cafes and bars adjacent to white sandy beaches for you to choose from, all in close proximity to your new home.
Surfers Paradise
Of course, you have the all famous Surfers Paradise, and even though this internationally renowned beach is surrounded by the many ‘touristy’ attractions, the view NEVER gets old! When you get hungry, you don’t have to go very far in this holiday hotspot as there are SO many delicious cafes, restaurants and bars nearby. Rather than us recommending one over the other, why not spend your time trying them all out and pick your favourites!
Broadbeach still attracts a few tourists with its high-rise backdrop but has plenty of sand to twinkle your toes in. A less shady beach calls for some new beach accessories and sunscreen of course, so a short 10-minute walk to Pacific Fair Shopping Centre is in order. Here you’ll find all your favourite brands plus an array of yummy cafés and restaurants to choose from. Betty’s Burgers would be a perfect stop for a quick but scrumptious bite to eat and maybe a cheeky dessert at Lello Lello Gelati & Dessert Café to celebrate your new lifestyle.
Burleigh Heads
Ah! One of our favourites!
Burleigh is definitely the beach to see and the locals won’t disagree.
This magical beach attracts a surfy-bohemian feel and is surrounded by gorgeous headland and Norfolk pines. You have plenty of shopping a hop, skip and jump away on James Street and immaculate beach to swim or surf in - whichever one is for you!
We highly recommend bringing a picnic basket to really enjoy this beauty, but if you can’t then one of the local fish ‘n’ chip shops is where it’s at.
Theme Parks
Only a short 15-minute drive to one of the Gold Coast’s must-do attractions. Dreamworld is home to the Big 9 Thrill Rides and isn’t for the faint hearted. We do know that it’s sure to attract the thrill seeker in you, and has plenty of family-friendly rides and attractions to enjoy too.
If you’re keen to continue in this theme, Movie World should be your next destination. There are not only more fun, high speed rides but you can indulge the younger you by seeing all of your favourite movie characters and watching world-class stunt shows.
Your next stop is Wet’n’Wild where you can cool off after an adventurous adrenaline filled few days and try your hand at some of Australia’s coolest water slides. If that isn’t your cup of tea, SeaWorld is also at your fingertips, showcasing some of the world’s most brilliant and beautiful animals. You might even want to treat yourself to a swim with the dolphins? There’s just nothing quite like it!
This is just a small taste of what the Gold Coast would have to offer you, if you were our next lucky winner. Purchase your tickets today to go into the draw to win this amazing prize home and lifestyle.
