Want to take back your summer, do so sustainably, all while supporting Australian small businesses?
Well, you can do just that, and, better yet, you can win it on us.
If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that we’re better when we come together. And Australia, you’ve stood up this year; from battling savage bushfires to floods, an extensive drought plus a global pandemic, we’ve seen the good in humanity, coming together to support each other, our local communities and the environment.
So, we’ve decided to embrace our inner Oprah and unleash our biggest giveaway to date. Not only do we have 16 premium brand partners on board, but, our Summer Playcation Giveaway will see EIGHT lucky winners, one from each and every state and territory. Yep, forget one or three major winners, we’re upping the ante with eight.
Each of our 16 brand partners has been carefully handpicked, all living and breathing our 2021 mantra: summer, sustainability, self-care and supporting local.
So, without further ado, let us introduce our premium partners and what will be included in each sensational Playcation bundle, all of which is sure to sweeten your 2021 summer.
Each Summer Playcation bundle includes:
