52 Ways to Win a Trip to Australia

Australia

Someday, is today. Rather than always saying that one day you’ll make it to Australia, Delta, Virgin Australia, and Tourism Australia have teamed up to give travelers the chance to take it off their bucket list with its new "52 Somedays" program. 

From a “Grape Escape” to spending a week snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef or riding a camel across ivory white sands, there are 52 experiences to choose from, and enter into here.

The beautiful visual experience of signing up is enticing enough to want to enter your name in for all of the experiences (which you can!). Place a “pin” on the map of Australia at the location and enter for a chance to win that “Someday” trip.

Australia is a must-visit destination on many Americans bucket lists to visit someday. If anything, this campaign not only encourages travelers to pack their bags—but gives them a free excuse to do so faster.
