One lucky person will have the opportunity to escape to the oldest living rainforest on the planet with a $4000 Daintree getaway prize on offer.
The ‘Digital Detox’ competition is an initiative of Tourism Port Douglas and Daintree (TTPD) to highlight the unique diversity of the Daintree Rainforest – a world heritage listed site, which is one of the major drawcards of the Douglas Region alongside the Great Barrier Reef.
The competition encourages people to nominate a friend who needs to disconnect from the digital world of computer screens and tablet devices and reconnect with nature to recharge the batteries.
The winner will have the opportunity to escape with a friend or loved one to the Daintree, stay three nights in luxurious accommodation, and delve deep into one of nature’s last unspoilt places.
TTPD executive officer Tara Bennett said the campaign was currently being rolled out across all the destination’s marketing platforms including the website www.visitportdouglasdaintree.
com and through social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter.
“These are truly one-off nature-based experiences to ensure people will be throughly detoxed after their visit.”
The prize package includes $1000 towards airfares and transfers, three-nights accommodation at Daintree Eco Lodge with breakfast included, dinner for two at Julaymba Restaurant, and two one-hour massage treatments.
In addition to this, the winner will also have the opportunity to experience zip lining with Jungle Surfing Canopy Tours, sea kayaking with Paddle Trek, snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef with Ocean Safari, a Daintree river cruise to spot the crocodiles in the wild with Solar Whisper Cruises and entry to Daintree Discovery Centre.
Entries close on August 31 and the winner will be drawn on September 11.
“We would like to thank the operators who have helped to make this possible,” Ms Bennett added.
The Daintree is tucked away between the Great Barrier Reef and the oldest Rainforest on earth. It spans over a total of 1200 square kilometres and over 400,000 people visit the Daintree rainforest every year.
