To kick off the New Year, we’ve decided to give away a premium weekend to one of Australia’s most beautiful, interesting and curious cities… Melbourne. 

We’ve decided to keep it local and showcase some of the finest hotels, restaurants, bars, distilleries and sporting experiences that grace the beautiful city. So whether you live in Melbourne, in greater Victoria or anywhere in our stunning country, you could win our ultimate Melbourne weekend escape!

What’s on offer?

We’ve partnered with premium brands and businesses to give you the best Melbourne escape you could dream of!

To start, you’ll be spoiled for two luxurious nights by The Langham, Melbourne.
Stay Friday 22 May 2020 and Saturday 23 May 2020 in the Executive Terrace Suite, located on the 21st to 23rd floor. You’ll have stunning views of Melbourne’s skyline and the Southbank precinct from your private terrace. You’ll enjoy the plush king-size bed, soft Langham bathrobes, slippers and deluxe toiletries, large marble bathroom, access to the Health and Wellness Centre and more. Better yet, you’ll also have access to The Langham Club, which unlocks deluxe continental breakfast, all-day tea, coffee and pastries, traditional afternoon tea, pre-dinner drinks and hors d’oeuvres.

Now that your premium accommodation is sorted, what about dining? 
We’ve teamed up with three premium hospitality groups to show you a great time! The winner will receive:
