We have some fabulous news for you today. Regular readers would know we publish a new competition every Monday. This week we introduce a prize you’re all going to love, courtesy of Platypus Park Country Retreat in Bridport, north east Tasmania. Keep your fingers crossed and hope to win… a night’s accommodation for a couple in the Lavender Cottage, including a breakfast hamper.

Accommodation: Platypus Park, Bridport

You must know by now we write only about first-hand experiences here at Think Tasmania. We do have plans to visit Bridport in person, when we’ll report in detail about the small coastal town in the north east region. In the meantime, our colleagues Kev and Carol Haberle have stepped up to the plate. They’ve already stayed in the Lavender Spa Cottage at Platypus Park, and confirm Gina and Tony provide truly lovely, comfortable accommodation…

“Platypus Park is a beautiful place to stay, so relaxing! Lovely ‘farmland’ walks along the Brid River, platypus and trout in the farm dams. The cottages are immaculate, and truly comfortable. Country hospitality and Gina and Tony are the perfect hosts. Perfect accommodation when staying in Bridport, close to town, close to beaches and close to Barnbougle Dunes Golf Course!” ~ Carol Haberle

The Platypus Park accommodation prize package is valued at $185-00. At the conclusion of this random draw, the winner will make a booking with hosts Gina and Tony for a mutually convenient time to stay.

For more information follow Platypus Park Country Retreat on Facebook, contact Gina Scott by email or phone (03) 6356 1873. Guests can book online via Platypus Park Country Retreat.

As we’ve said before, the competition rules on Facebook are all too hard, 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! This will be a random draw, so comments won’t influence the outcome. But if you’d like to leave any feedback about Platypus Park Country Retreat, that would be really great. You could discuss your personal desire to win this prize, or even Think Tasmania… we’d love to hear it all, and we’ll be closely following all the comments. We won’t reply individually because that would upset the competition app (it might award us the prize!).

Platypus Park Country Retreat ~ Common Sense Please?

  • Leave a comment on this post by midnight 4th November 2013 (local time). We’ll choose a random winner using our website’s competition app.
  • The Lavender Cottage accommodation package as described with a retail value of $185-00 is the one and only prize.
  • Fair and reasonable terms and conditions automatically apply. So one entry each (our app is able to detect multiple entries).
  • Please apply common sense to all aspects of this Platypus Park competition… we’d hate to disqualify someone for being silly.
  • We won’t use your email address for anything sinister, because we firmly believe in doing the right thing. Always. Don’t you?
  • We’ll announce the winner’s name here, on Facebook and Twitter. We’ll also contact the winner by email, and advise Gina Scott (the co-owner of Platypus Park Country Retreat) of the competition results.

What else do we need to stipulate? Nothing? Okay… then it’s over to you. Comment away! We wish you all the very best of luck. And if you’d be kind enough to share this Platypus Park Country Retreat competition with all your peeps, we’d be extremely happy. Besides showing a little friendly community spirit by spreading the joy, sharing will also no doubt lead to similar competitions in the future. And THAT can only be a good thing for everyone!

*We ask that you subscribe to Think Tasmania for these competitions for several reasons. Of course we’d prefer any prizes go to dedicated followers; and we need to make sure we can contact the winners. What makes it to the Newsfeed of Facebook is a bit random, and not everyone even uses social media. Most people can receive an email however, so that’s our sure-fire way of reaching everyone. And finally, we like to share all the great things on offer in Tasmania with as many interested readers as possible – that’s our mission!
