Non-profit organisation Great Barrier Reef Legacy (GBR Legacy) is giving one lucky individual the chance to win The Ultimate Tropical Holiday Package for Two.
The winner receives vouchers valued at over $7000 to enable them to create their very own bucket list holiday, complete with reef and rainforest tours, the best dining and beverage options, flights, car rental and accommodation, and unique and exciting experiences such as helicopter tours and aboriginal cultural adventures.
Through ticket sales from the raffle, GBR Legacy will raise the profile of reef friendly businesses and generate funds for The Living Coral Biobank Project said Dr Dean Miller, Managing Director of GBR Legacy.
“Reef Positive: Port Douglas & Daintree is a perfect combination of two simple ideas. The first being local businesses approaching us wanting to do their bit to help the Great Barrier Reef, and the second being a want for tourists to have adventures with purpose,” Dr Miller said.
“We have handpicked the highest quality tourism experiences that best showcase what the region has to offer, whilst also having a strong environmental and sustainability focus. Imagine everything you ever wanted to do in Port Douglas and Daintree – that’s what the Reef Positive, Ultimate Tropical Holiday Package is. A jam packed 6 days you will never forget. And the best part is, it helps our amazing Great Barrier Reef.”
All money raised will be used to support the world’s first Living Coral Biobank, a project spearheaded by GBR Legacy that is preserving the biodiversity of Great Barrier Reef corals in a coral ark with the ‘godfather of coral’ Dr Charlie Veron.
“These funds will allow us to continue our collection of all 400 species of corals found on the Great Barrier Reef, keeping them alive in land-based facilities for their ultimate conservation, as well as aid in reef research and restoration efforts,” continued Dean.
“Tourism Port Douglas & Daintree is delighted to get behind this proactive initiative,” said Tara Bennett, CEO for Tourism Port Douglas & Daintree.
“The concept of Reef Positive sets the tone of leaving the planet in a better way, the best way to be rethinking our impact and footprint. I applaud GBR Legacy for linking holidays with conservation. An exciting future for travel in our region.”
Reef Positive: Port Douglas & Daintree is the first of a series of ultimate holiday giveaways that feature some of the most environmentally friendly experience options for destinations along the Great Barrier Reef coast.
