Update on the TNFP Landscape Awards

Hi all, thanks for your comments on this possible competition. To make it all work I need to get at least 140 people to enter. The entry fee will be $50 and that allows you to submit 4 images, so 4 chances to pull off the big prize. What is the big prize? Read below

IMG_0595.JPGWelcome aboard the magnificent True North in magnificent Sydney Harbour. Enjoy a sumptuous dinner as you are treated to an evening cruise on one of the finest harbours in the world!
Day 1
New Years Eve
Visit Sydney’s famed Taronga Zoo or take-off in the helicopter for a scenic flight over the Harbour. Spend the afternoon swimming and beach combing on Quarantine or Store beach as the chefs prepare a barbeque lunch like no other!

Then enjoy a leisurely cruise to Middle Harbour before taking up one of Sydney’s best vantages to witness the Harbour Bridge fireworks display – Happy New Year!

Day 2
After an early morning cruise along Sydney’s revered northern beaches – enjoy breakfast in the beautiful surrounds of Pittwater. Morning activities will include a walk to the Barrenjoey Lighthouse, beach combing and a scenic cruise past the Pittwater Yacht clubs. There may also be a chance to walk from Longnose Point to Flint & Steel Bay through the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park – Australia’s second oldest national park.

A helicopter flight to the Hunter Valley and wine tasting at our feature winery is sure to be a cruise highlight!

Whilst you are enjoying lunch the True North will cruise to Maitland Bay. Enjoy a swim or a bush walk through the surrounding national park. Sunset drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be served on the beach before an evening cruise to Jerusalem Bay.

Day 3
Wake up to the shrill of the Jerusalem Bay cicadas. Join the crew for a bush walk along the Jerusalem Bay Bush Trail or head out in the tenders for sight seeing and swimming. Then savour a lunch on the sparkling waters of Cowan Creek, or join the heli-flight to the Blue Mountains and enjoy lunch at Echoes Boutique Hotel – 2007 winner of “Restaurant of the Year”!

In the afternoon the True North will anchor at the mouth of the mighty Hawkesbury. From here we head out to Glenworth Valley for your choice of horse riding, kayaking, abseiling or quad bike riding. Or, maybe a visit to a local oyster farm is more your style?

And in the evening something special – a live band to make your last night onboard a night to remember!

Day 4 The True North will cruise back into Sydney Harbour for 0800 disembarkation.

So that is the scoop on the major prize and remember it is for you and a friend, would be a great place to propose or maybe that second honeymoon or just take your mother (if you have no mates). I will be getting some other sponsors to get on board to offer a range of other big prizes so your chance to win something would be pretty good. Forget the APPA’s this comp will deliver, no printed certificates just kick @r$e prizes.
As it stands now we have had roughly 50 people put their hand up to enter, this is without knowing the cost to do so. So we need another 100 odd so if you have any friends that might like to enter and you know there is know way in hell they will beat you get them to express their interest.

So what do I get from all of this, nothing but peace, love and harmony.
