Win A Free Gap Year Trip To Australia

Because escaping to the other side of the world is the answer to most problems.

Let’s face it, sometimes the UK is bad vibes. If you’d much rather be sat on a stunning beach, soaking in the sun and seeing some incredible sights and nature, you’ve probably googled how much a roundtrip to Australia costs more than once (and disappointingly closed the tab when you realised it’s not cheap).

Well, if it’s your dream to visit Australia you’re in luck as you could join the 2.3 million people who visit North Queensland every single year and go on a gap year trip of a lifetime FOR FREE.

How can I win a trip to Australia?

Clear your diary for the end of this year, as whether you have some free time before your next year of uni begins, you’re taking a gap year, or you’re finishing uni and want to relax before you enter the world of work— one lucky person could be jetting off to Australia for free this year.

KILROY the leading student, youth and adventure travel agency has partnered with Tourism Tropical North Queensland to offer the trip of a lifetime for a 10-day solo travel experience like no other.

The lucky winner will win an amazing trip to North Queensland, Australia home of the Great Barrier Reef and the city of Cairns, for an action-packed 10 days. From skydiving over Mission Beach to an overnight reefsleep experience which could see you eating and sleeping on the Great Barrier Reef this would truly be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The winner will receive:

  • A 10-day bedhopper pass from Nomads
  • Greyhound bus pass from Brisbane to Cairns
  • Skydive session with ExperienceCo
  • Round-trip economy flights to Australia

You’re also welcome to stay for longer than 10 days but at your own expense, so while your return flight would be covered you’d need to pay for alternative accommodation yourself.

So, how can you apply?

Simply sign up right here by signing up to the KILROY mailing list via the pop-up form on their website.

You have until the 31st of May to apply, so you need to be quick if this sounds like your dream trip.

The winner will be announced at some point in June and will be contacted by email by July 1st. If you’re lucky enough to win, you’re free to take your trip at a time that suits you as the flights are flexible, as long as it’s booked before the 30th of November and the trip is taken by the 31st of December 2024.

So, if you fancy a break from uni before Christmas this would work perfectly. Remember that it’s currently winter in Australia, which means that when it’s cold and dark in the UK by November that’s the best time to visit Australia for some sunshine.
