When it came to putting together this year’s epic Christmas Prize Home package, we’ll admit that our prize team’s wish list was a little… dare we say… demanding?
The only other person cheeky enough to ask for half a million in gold bullion on top of a luxury prize home would be the Home Alone kid, Kevin McCallister. But seeing as our list is for giving rather than receiving, miraculously, our Head of Lotteries, Kirsty, said, “Yes”.
The result is a $2.35 million Christmas Prize Home package that really does tick off your whole family’s wish list in one. We’ve managed to squeeze so much into our metaphorical ‘Santa sack’ this year that it’ll be Christmas Day for everyone all year round.
Best of all, a ticket to win the lot will cost you no more than those stocking fillers that wind up on the sale table on Boxing Day. Yes, for the price of a novelty gift that’s guaranteed to make your Gran blush, you could snap up a chance to win Endeavour Foundation’s $2.35 million Christmas Prize Home and all the trimmings.
And when we say trimmings, we really mean it…
Yep, you read that right. For the first time ever in a Prize Home package, we’re throwing in a whopping $500,000 in cashable gold bullion.
Imagine being mortgage-free, plus having half a million in cash to splash! You could take a gap year with the family; maybe even a few. Or you could even consider pulling up stumps a little earlier than planned and retire off into the sunset.
Of course, the biggest gift in our stacked Santa sack is the stunning Prize Home itself.
This fully furnished, four-bedroom contemporary home, tucked away in the Glass House Mountains, really ticks the boxes for the whole family. Set on over half an acre, the home boasts a home theatre, butler’s pantry, plus an amazing outdoor entertaining area and pool with a spectacular view of Mount Tibrogargan.
Perfectly positioned for family adventures, the home is a mere five minutes from National Park walking trails, and just a 30-minute drive from Sunshine Coast beaches. The Glass House Mountains train station is also just a few minutes down the road which means you can sit back, relax and be in Brisbane in a little over an hour. Would you consider the commute for all this?
Our first prize winner will also become the proud owner of a second, enviable home… on wheels.
Lovingly named ‘Tibby’ after the mountain that watches over the home, is a fully restored retro caravan valued at a not-too-shabby $42,000, as rare-as-hen’s-teeth.
Completely kitted out in modern retro style, and impeccably finished down to the finest detail, it’s fair to say that despite her age, Tibby has never looked better.
Whether you take her with you on your holidays or park her in the yard for your kids and guests to enjoy, she will become a truly treasured member of the family.
If you build it, they will come. In this case, the ‘it’ is an epic, custom-built skate ramp that you’d expect see at your local park rather than your very own backyard.
Valued over $50,000, this amazing skate ramp, designed and constructed by KO Ramps, comes complete with rails and multiple drop-in heights and will be a magnet for big and little kids alike.
If the awesome mural on the outside of the home’s huge 12x4m shed is anything to go by, you’re going to want to see what’s inside.
Peek in through the door and you’ll see this multi-purpose shed does double duty as a skateboard workshop and games retreat. The space has been kitted out with work benches, an Ultimate Storage system, drinks fridge, servery, comfy couch and even a TV. And to make sure the whole family has the chance to try out their skills on the ramp, we’ve supplied a scooter and a few skateboards, a scooter and helmets to get you started. No excuses now.
There’s even space for you to store your gardening tools at the front of the skateboard workshop.
If that’s not enough, under our Prize Home Christmas tree you’ll find an amazing Xbox Series X (valued at over $800), which any gamer will tell you is literally the fastest, most powerful Xbox ever made.
And last but not least, it wouldn’t be Christmas without the classic festive flick, Home Alone. So, what better finishing touch for our Christmas Prize Home than Lego’s new Home Alone set (valued at over $400), which recreates the McCallister’s grand two-storey house complete with booby traps and treehouse, plus mini figurines of the ‘Wet Bandits’ and the one and only Kevin McCallister.
Relive classic moments from the playful pranks, daring escapes and the screamingly fun scene of Kevin and the aftershave.
Win the ultimate Christmas present
You have to admit that our $2.35 million Christmas Prize Home package is not a bad haul for a $10 investment. And while getting some hankies from Nan or a novelty stubbie cooler from Uncle Trev will always be appreciated, it’s completely understandable if you like our gift a little better.
