Tour Australia Like a Rock Star!January 13, 2009
Better yet, tour Australia with some rock stars.
Continuing with our Australia theme this week, Tourism Australia has a contest going on right now where the grand prize is a free trip Down Under with the bands Attack In Black, Bedouin Soundclash, Moneen and Rival Schools.
You’ll get all of your travel expenses taken care of, plus tickets and backstage passes for Soundwave 2009 – a festival that plays in five Australian capital cities.
So you get to go to Australia. You get to hang out with musicians. You get sent on really cool outings and activities and tours. Downside to living like a rock god? Nope, don’t see one.
Once you’re there maybe you’ll decide to do some backpacking on your own, or do a working holiday, or maybe you’ll love it so much that once you get home you’ll decide to turn around and go back for a semester or year abroad like I did. (Best decision ever, no matter how impractical my mother said it was.)
Who knows where you’ll end up, or who with, but starting your journey with an international concert tour doesn’t sound like a bad idea. If you win, promise that you’ll trash at least one hotel room. (Not really. You don’t have to. It actually sounds like a pretty rude thing to do. How about we settle for some mildly bad behaviour, like hogging all the pillows at the hotel or something.)
This contest is open to all legal residents of Canada (excluding Quebec), who are at least 18 years of age at the time of entry. The last day to enter is February 6, 2009, so get a move on. Contest sponsors include our happy friends at Travel CUTS, plus dine alone records and QANTAS, which is the airline with the prettiest planes.
