WANT a beach escape on your doorstep?
Then your community newspaper could have the answer with The Star on Holidays photo competition.
All you need to do is snap a shot of you and The Star in holiday mode.
The winner will walk away with an indulgent break thanks to Shoal Bay Resort & Spa.
The getaway package, valued at $1500, includes three nights mid-week accommodation for two adults in a poolview studio, with a daily buffet breakfast, $50 SeaRock@Shoal Bay Restaurant dining voucher, $100 Aqua Spa voucher, complementary use of Aqua Spa facilities and undercover parking*.
So, whatever you do this summer, whether you are going overseas, travelling around Australia, or hanging out in your own backyard, don't forget to take The Star with you.
Then snap a shot of you and The Star in holiday mode on location and send it to us.
The photographs can be digital (but must be a high resolution with a minimum size of 1MB or 300 dpi) or printed off.
They can be sent by email to: email@example.com, mailed to PO Box 510, Newcastle, 2300 or dropped in to the office at 28 Bolton Street, Newcastle.
Each photograph must have your name, age (if the photographer is under 18 years old), holiday location, home address and daytime phone number.
