Recently we stayed at Eagles Nest II, a luxury accommodation property near Sheffield in north west Tasmania. And now we have some outstanding news for all of you. Des Brown, the owner of Eagles Nest Retreat, would like to offer Think Tasmania readers the opportunity to experience their own indulgent getaway, just as we did. How about that for great news? It couldn’t be better timing either, with the festive season all but upon us.

Eagles Nest II: A Night to Remember

When I heard this fabulous news, I was overcome with joy and excitement, just like a child on Christmas morning. I mentioned that Eagles Nest II is awesome in every regard; pure bliss in fact. I did also acknowledge that it’s difficult to do the place justice in words, and even photographs. But thanks to the generosity of Des Brown, one very lucky reader will get to experience this wonderful place for themselves.


There’s no secret catch to the deal. The winner will be able to book a night that suits them (subject to availability) and can take their prize any time in the next 12 months. One night’s accommodation at Eagles Nest II (so exactly the same property we shared with you) will be offered to the winner and their guest. If they wish to book extra nights or bring additional guests with them, they can do so at their own cost.

Eagles Nest II will be stocked with full breakfast provisions and gourmet delights for the winner to enjoy on arrival. The prize is valued at $620. There are other deluxe services (massage, chef, butler, etc) available at an additional cost; they’re listed on the Eagles Nest Retreat website and can be organised with Des Brown if desired.

Christmas Eve… Imagine the Excitement for the Winner!

As we’ve said before, the competition rules on Facebook are all too mind-boggling, so we’re going to keep this in-house.  We’re also going to keep it REALLY simple.  If you are subscribed to receive the free newsletter from Think Tasmania, you are eligible to enter.  Apparently a random draw is still allowed in Tasmania without applying for a permit, so here’s what you need to do…

Step 1 – be a subscriber to the FREE newsletter from Think Tasmania*

Step 2 – leave a reply at the bottom of this article.

And that’s it!  Of course if you’d like to follow Eagles Nest Retreat on Facebook and keep the property in mind for future getaways, that would be a good idea too.  Des Brown is giving you the chance to win something awesome, after all. And here’s a little insider tip… sometimes a free night’s accommodation is offered to dedicated fans and those seen by Des as genuinely needing a break.

But if you’d like to leave any feedback about Eagles Nest Retreat, or Sheffield, or your personal desire to win this prize, or even Think Tasmania… we’d love to hear it. Des will be closely following the progress of the giveaway.


And of course, Christmas is all about sharing and caring, so please get into the spirit of the season and spread the word about this giveaway. Imagine if one of your friends were to win the night at Eagles Nest II through your actions… they might even take you with them!
