WIN a $7,000 river cruise for two!

Thanks to our friends at Gate 1 Travel, we’re offering one lucky reader the chance to win a seven-night Rhine river cruise for two valued at $7,159. 



This fabulous prize includes seven-nights aboard the first-class Monarch Countess in a Cabin E (option to upgrade but winner will need to pay the difference). But that’s just the beginning…


The prize also includes: river port charges of $190 per person, cruise porterage, 20 meals (seven breakfasts, six lunches, seven dinners), unlimited beer and wine with dinners, entrance fees per itinerary, wireless earphones for enhanced touring during excursions, gratuities and special features. 



Touring options on the Rhine are extensive. In Amsterdam, board a glass-top boat and cruise the winding canals, or sail to Cologne, capital of the Rhineland. Discover 2000-year-old Koblenz, with its superb Romanesque architecture, or view the mighty Lorelei Rock (named for the siren Lorelei) rising vertically from the waters. 


Stroll the lanes filled with quaint wine taverns in the lively village of Rüdesheim, visit the Alsace capital of Strasbourg that has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, or walk the cobbled streets of tiny Breisach, a city that dates back more than 4,000 years. 



Founded in 1981 with just three employees, Gate 1 now boasts more than 400 staff in their international offices with a promise to deliver more of the world for less by developing quality, affordable holidays for Australians.
