Online Travel Contest Offers Chance to Win $12,000 for Trip to Australia

Your dream of visiting Australia just might be closer than you think, thanks to a new online contest called “My Aussie Experience Travel Contest.” The format is simple: In 100 words or less describe what your ultimate Australia experience would be in one of nine popular travel destinations Down Under, including Sydney, Kangaroo Island, and Adelaide.

The best part? The winner receives a Qantas Vacations travel voucher for up to $12,000 USD towards their ultimate Aussie vacation.

The winning entry will be selected from the top-voted entries for each of the nine destinations. A jury composed of representatives from the three sponsoring organizations – Ensemble Travel Group, Qantas Vacations, and Tourism Australia – will determine the winner. Contest deadline is 5:00 p.m. PT, June 7, 2012. No purchase is necessary to enter or win.
