Our biggest lottery ever isn’t just going to change your life with its spectacular 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom Hamptons inspired home on an acreage estate surrounded by the Gold Coast hinterland. This prize lottery also comes with a once-in-a-lifetime experience: an Australian Open Final Experience, valued at $12,000. Because making lifelong memories are just as integral to a good life as loving where you live.
To get your passion for tennis growing, our latest Mater Prize Home lottery No. 308 comes with a full sized tennis court that will have you feeling like a pro as you improve your game on its pristine, brand-new surface. While you may not have fans cheering you on like the professionals do at the Australian Open, you do have breathtaking hinterland views all around you for an extra special experience every time you pick up your racquet.
By the time January rolls around, you’ll be ready to learn a thing or two from the greatest names in tennis by watching them live at the Australian Open 2024. Here’s what you have to look forward to just months after moving into your dream home and starting your new life of luxury in our Mater Prize Home.
Pack your bags for a glorious long weekend in Melbourne come January 2024. Included in this home lottery, you’ll fly return from the nearest capital city to Melbourne, stay 3 nights at one of Melbourne's most unique 5-star hotels, the Pullman Melbourne on Swanston, and experience the Australian Open up close and personal with Mid-Lower Baseline tickets to the Men’s and Women’s Finals! From your Reserved Seat in the iconic Rod Laver Arena at the AO 2024, you’ll live every point and rally as it happens and get a sense for what makes this annual event so unmissable.
What’s included in your AU Open Experience:
While Melbourne may have a reputation for being 'the Sporting Capital of the World', of which you can testify to after your premium tennis experience, it’s also home to cool laneways, excellent coffee, cultural diversity and amazing food. So don’t head home without exploring the best Melbourne has to offer.
If you want to know where the best places to eat in Melbourne are, just look for the long lines out the door. Melbournians aren’t afraid to queue for good food! Chinatown offers a medley of authentic Asian cuisine, while Lygon Street is a go-to for traditional Italian. You’ll always find locals flocking to Stalactites for a Greek feast day and night; Pellegrini’s is a great for a casual meal that’s delicious but not overpriced; and Yakimono is leading the way for some of the best Japanese in all of Melbourne. For something a little more fancy, check out Longrain, Cumulus Inc., or Il Bacaro.
Coffee and cocktails should definitely be on your menu while you’re in town. Bigger isn’t always better when it comes to coffee shops serving up the best brews. In fact, it’s those little holes in the wall—like Tom Thumb and Oli & Levi in the CBD—that tend to serve Melbourne’s finest cups of caffeine. After dark, the city is overrun with some of the best cocktail bars in Melbourne. Convenient for you and your Swanston Street location, Dom’s Social Club is the destination that keeps on giving just a stumble away from your accommodation. After dining on authentic Italian wood fired pizza on Level 1, make your way up another level for a free game of pool and a couple of drinks. Then, head up one more level to the rooftop to end your night with sparkling city views for an Apertivo Martini or Gold Rush (made with Angels Envy Port Cask Bourbon, honey, and lemon). You’ll also find great options for a night out at laneway bars such as Meyers Place and Gin Palace, or treat yourself to the decadent drink menus at Goldilocks, Gimlet, and Pearl Diver Cocktails & Oysters - just to name a few.
Between tennis matches, you’ll have plenty of time to wander through Melbourne’s many museums and galleries (Australia's oldest and most popular art museum, National Gallery of Victoria is a must!), find hidden treasures at the Queen Victoria Market, catch a musical at the Regent Theatre, and stroll laneways in search of street art. For a green escape right in the city, the Royal Botanic Gardens is a stunning spot to soak up some sunshine.
Three days is barely enough to scratch the surface of all that Melbourne has to give, so why not splurge by adding a few extra days to your trip. With a life-changing $120k gold bullion included in the prize lottery, you’ll have more than enough funds to live it up in luxury. Besides literally eating your way through Melbourne’s incredible food scene (why not add one of Melbourne's many chef-hatted restaurants to your bucket list, like Attica, Flower Drum or Vue de Monde), consider indulging in a champagne breakfast while flying high above the Yarra Valley at sunrise in a hot air balloon; or go designer shopping at MARAIS; treat yourself to a spa day at Crown Spa Melbourne; or leave the city behind and unwind at the Mornington Peninsula Hot Springs or picture-perfect Daylesford in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range of Victoria.
