2 min read
This Surf Life Saving Lotteries luxury prize home will leave you in awe!
First prize is valued at $1,185,399 and includes a design and furniture package worth $140,399. The generous floor plan makes this address an ideal family home. Alternatively, with the Sunshine Coast Airport just a short drive away, you could fly in anytime for the perfect holiday getaway.
This stunning waterfront prize home is located in Mountain Creek. It’s one of the Sunshine Coast’s leafy suburbs close to the best beaches, shopping centres, and entertainment. The prize home features four bedrooms, open plan kitchen/living/dining, a downstairs study and upstairs retreat. In addition, an outdoor alfresco dining area and an in-ground pool overlooking the waterway. What else could you ask for?
The Sunshine Coast is renowned for beautiful landscapes and a relaxed lifestyle. With pristine beaches, endless water activities, parklands, world-class sporting events, a thriving music scene, restaurants and cafes all at your doorstep, you will be spoilt for choice. Centrally located, just a short drive from Sunshine Coast Airport, this impressive Mountain Creek home provides an ideal base to explore the region.
The Sunshine Coast rental market remains among the strongest in Queensland. Consequently, vacancy rates are steady, sitting at 1.4 per cent, which the REIQ classes as a tight market. Upward pressure has pushed weekly rents up between $10 and $20 a week. As a result, Mountain Creek median house and median unit prices have grown strongly over the past five years. Median house prices have risen 18.8 per cent to $537,500 and median unit prices have grown by 14.5 per cent to reach $372,000.

Surf Life Saving Lotteries operates six prize home lotteries each year. Additionally, the Surf Life Saving Foundation runs other philanthropic and fundraising activities.
Above all, 169,633 members from 313 Surf Life Saving clubs across Australia help protect people during the 100 million beach visitations each year. Surf lifesavers ensure that our beaches remain among the safest in the world. The cost of providing this lifesaving service is only possible thanks to the dedicated support from the community.
The much-needed funds funnel into three main priority services:
RESCUE GEAR AND EQUIPMENT
Rescue gear and equipment represents the biggest single cost to running lifesaving services in Australia. Certainly, due to the harsh elements on the Australian coast, maintenance or eventual replacement of equipment is needed to make sure that it is rescue-ready.
TRAINING SURF LIFESAVERS
Training lifesavers to industry standards can be costly. The foundation regularly updates training manuals and course materials. Equipment like rescue mannequins and first aid supplies allow for realistic practice in real-world scenarios. Furthermore, administrative support for volunteer trainers and assessors need to be provided.
COMMUNITY EDUCATION PROGRAMS
The Surf Life Saving Foundation produce safety awareness information for members of the public, including posters, flyers, signage and more. Another service is their affordable training programs on offer to the public through commercial operations such as Bronze Medallion.
