The latest offering in the RSL Home Lottery is not one but three fantastic luxury apartments. Each apartment is filled with modern appliances, creative design features, and top of the line furnishings. The total first prize package is an eye-popping $3,460,371 and promises to change one lucky winner’s life forever.
The first apartment is a one-bedroom luxury unit in Port Melbourne, part of the exclusive Bayshore development. It has everything you need including access to the complex’s pool, spa and gym facilities. This is a classy neighbourhood with views over the water and the city centre just a few minutes down the road.
The Sydney suburb of Potts Point is where you’ll find apartment number 2. It gives you a view over the Opera House and Circular Quay, with two bedrooms and all the added amenities that come with an opulent apartment.
On to Noosa Heads where the third apartment spreads over two levels of roomy, comfortable living. You’ll be loving the Sunshine Coast, where every day is a hard choice between the beach, the sporting attractions, or the natural beauty of the hinterland.
All three are included in the top prize, yours to live in, rent or sell and become a multi-millionaire overnight. A pretty sweet prize in exchange for supporting one of Australia’s most deserving charities.
Where Do You Want to Live?
Port Melbourne, Melbourne
It’s hard to believe that this part of the city used to be filled with industry and working dockland. Port Melbourne, however, has benefitted from years of redevelopment to emerge as a wealthy suburb with lots of open greenspace and graceful historic buildings. It’s only a few kilometres from Flinders Street Station, yet lies on the cusp of the bay beaches, the lower banks of the Yarra, and the shores of Hobson Bay.
The first apartment in the triple offering is located on Bay Street, right in the middle of the suburb’s historical shopping hub. Browse, dine and enjoy the nightlife before collapsing in your cozy apartment. You may want to make this one your permanent home, or use it for weekend getaways and unique adventures in Australia’s cultural capital.
Potts Point, Sydney
This is one of the oldest (and smallest) suburbs in the city, and now one of its most sought-after. It was originally a small point across from what is now Circular Quay, filled with mansions and members of Sydney’s high society. Over time, it became a bohemian enclave for artists and writers, and has developed into a community marked by affluence, tradition and impeccable taste.
The apartment is located on Victoria Street, ten minutes from the Sydney Opera House. It provides the finest in urban living, a sanctuary within an inner-city suburb known for its fine dining, shopping and theatres. You can attend the many functions and events at Circular Quay, or simply watch the fireworks from your private al fresco, nineteen floors above it all.
Noosa Heads, Sunshine Coast
The third apartment in the Draw #350 package is situated in the town of Noosa Heads on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. This is where people from across the country and around the world come to play. The wide sandy beaches rival the spectacular beauty of the hinterland, filled with wildlife and hiking trails for the more adventurous. The National Park, the Noosa River and the Main Beach surround this priceless piece of paradise.
The apartment is a three-bedroom executive with room for the whole family. You’ll have access to a terrific outdoor pool, spa and gym – that is if you can pull yourself away from the fantastic views of Laguna Bay you’ll get from your private patio.

Pay Attention to These Important Dates
Draw #350 is going to sell out, no doubt about it. The lure of winning three apartments in three of the most exclusive neighbourhoods in the country means you need to act now to avoid the disappointment of missing out. This draw is going to change someone’s life – and that “someone” could well be you.
November 7th, 2017: Draw 350 of the RSL Art Union Prize Home Lottery closes at 8pm AEST
November 15th, 2017: The draw for the three apartments will be held at 10am AEST on at ANZAC HOUSE, 283 St Pauls Terrace, Fortitude Valley QLD 4006.
Members of the public are warmly welcome to attend and view the draw.
The winners will be advised of the good news by registered mail. Public notices will also be placed in the “Courier Mail” and the “Australian” following the draw. You will also find a list of winners on this site after November 15th. Now there’s an early Christmas present to watch for!
Noosa Apartment Open for Viewing
Visit the Noosa apartment to see what just short of a million dollars will get you on the Sunshine Coast. The property is open for viewing until November 7th, 2017 and is well worth a look. You’ll find it at “The Rise”, 26/37-39 Noosa Drive, Noosa Heads, QLD 4567.
Come anytime between 10:00 in the morning and 3:00 in the afternoon to see this lovely home. Bring the family and take off to the beach, explore the town, or go for a hike in the hinterland. There’s a reason so many people love this unique piece of Australia’s coastline, and if you’ve never been, you’re in for a treat.
Regrettably, the Sydney and Melbourne apartments won’t be open for tours or inspection. If you want to drive by, however, you can see them at your leisure and be struck by their fantastic locations.
What Will You Do with All Those Apartments?
Who says you can’t be in three places at once? If you want the thrill of jet-setting around the country while still sleeping in your own bed every night, hang onto all three apartments and switch between the sights of Sydney, the allure of Melbourne, and the laid-back lifestyle on the Sunshine Coast.
On the other hand, many past winners have sold their property and used the proceeds to build exciting new lives for themselves. If you follow their example, you’ll be an instant multi-millionaire and can do pretty much anything you want with the money. Get out of debt, walk away from your job, or help family members get their head above water. Take a year to see the world, and another to see your own country. Get the best seats at the Opera House, the finest wine with dinner, and that fancy sportscar you always dreamed of driving down the Great Ocean Road with the top down. If you win big – be prepared to dream even bigger.
If you sell now, you can expect to receive over 3 million dollars by putting the 3 apartments on the market. But what if you decide to rent them for awhile first? Current estimates would indicate that you could receive an annual income of $155,000 as a landlord. That’s enough to quit your job, get out of debt or live a little – and still own the properties as a long-term investment.
Over time, it is expected that property values in all three locations will continue to rise. Living in one and renting the other two provides short term benefits and preserves the long-term objective of selling at an even higher rate later on.
Move, sell or rent. Any and all combinations are within your reach if you’re the lucky ticket holder in this unbelievably versatile draw.
