Win 1 Of 5 Short Breaks Around Australia And New Zealand

Hey, you there, the one reading this while your boss isn’t watching and you’re meant to be working. You need a break. Not even a huge one, just a little short break to reset. I know, I see you. I’ve been there.

What is it about nearly making it to the end of the year, but still not quite close enough, that just makes life really hard to handle? Like, you were perfectly content until about a week ago and now you’re just exhausted. Paying for your own holiday at this point is just going to make you feel guilty as hell because Christmas is right around the corner and for some reason, we’ve decided amongst ourselves that any money spent on self-love at the pointy end of the year is selfish.

Luckily for all of us, Choice Hotels agree with us that this notion is lies! You deserve to de-stress before the stress that is family gatherings. So we’ve partnered up to give you the chance to win 1 of 5 short breaks around Australia and New Zealand. All you have to do is get yourself there and your accommodation will be sorted. Just think of all the bliss!

Jump on the link below for the chance to win your own accommodation-paid short break. All you have to do is tell us why you’re in desperate need of a little break. Like that’s hard, you probably have a million reasons! As always, check the T&C’s because conditions apply.


Not that I’d be one to tell you what to do, but let me just tell you what to do for a hot minute.

Get Inland

Maybe you should go get close to some cute animals at Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo. You get to jump on a pushbike and ride around it too, so say hello to mood-boosting endorphins. Animals not your thing? I STILL remember being seriously on edge and fascinated at the same time at Old Dubbo Goal. Sure I was about 10 years old, but that whole experience has stuck with me.

Soak Up The Tropics

Feeling a little more of a sun and sand sitch? Cairns, guys, Cairns. My fam grew up 3 hours south of Cairns so let me tell you (in case you somehow haven’t been already), it even SMELLS better up there. It’s so warm there’s none of that uncomfortable jog-around-in-the-water-until-your-not-frozen thing going. Just get right on in. You’re right on the Great Barrier Reef so the snorkeling is insane if that’s your jam, just please be environmentally responsible while you’re there so we can keep enjoying it for years to come. Ok, thanks.

Get Underground

You know that stupid thing people (by which I mean me, personally) do where they put off Australian destinations they really want to get to because it seems like it’ll always be there? Well, that’s Coober Pedy for me, and we should all definitely stop doing this. I’ve always been fascinated by the idea of this underground opal mining town. I enjoy short jaunts into a Wild West kind of vibe too, if I’m totally honest.

Be In The Buzz

Strictly a city person? Why not experience life for our little cousins across the ocean. Do you even know how cheap flights to NZ can be? Pretty cheap. Personally, I’m so keen to get to Christchurch. For starters, I’m an avid hiker, and I don’t think you understand how beautiful this country is. I’ve only been to the north island and the south is meant to be even better. You know what’s even better than a walk through natural beauty? The natural beauty of a cold beer and tasty feed afterward and Christchurch has quite a rep for its foodie scene.
