A Toast to You Winning a Trip to Australia From Outback Steakhouse?

…then consider participating in this contest by creating a unique toast and posting at any time through Sunday, January 28, 2018 at 11:59:59 in the evening Eastern Standard Time to your Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter account using the hashtag #BigBlokeToast.

Keep in mind that although the theme is a toast, the content which you submit ironically cannot show any individual consuming alcohol — amongst other submission restrictions.

The grand prize of a trip for two people to Australia is actually pretty cool — the approximate retail value is $7,300.00; and the trip must be taken within one year of the date on which it was awarded — as it includes:

  • Round-trip economy class airfare for two people from major airport nearest the winner’s home as approved by the sponsor to Sydney
  • Five nights hotel accommodations at a hotel in Sydney which is specified by the sponsor
  • A Harbour Bridge Climb tour for two; and
  • A food credit of $3,000.00 to be awarded as a network-branded gift card

A first prize will also be awarded to another winner, which is two certificates worth $40.00 each month for twelve consecutive months for use at any Outback Steakhouse location in the United States. The approximate retail value of this prize is $960.00

During my first trip to Australia, I traveled out to the centre of the country and actually dined on kangaroo, crocodile, emu sausage and chicken out in the real Outback with views of Uluru — otherwise known as Ayer’s Rock — and Kata Tjuta. The Southern Cross and other constellations of stars seemed so close that you could almost reach up and grab them.

Funnily, no one in Australia at that time had ever heard of Outback Steakhouse.

I have driven over the Harbour Bridge in Sydney; as well as walked over it — but I did not climb it. I would be interested in doing that if I ever returned to Sydney. If you do find yourself in the neighborhood known as The Rocks and you want to dine while simultaneously viewing the Harbour bridge and the Opera House, get yourself some Balmain Bugs if you prefer seafood. I highly recommend them.

That there is a lot at steak is no bull, as this promotion is a prime opportunity for you to win a nice trip — if participating in it is your choice.

I would not call it a rare opportunity; but if you do win, well done!
