In collaboration with the Ford Ranger NZ Rural Games, Palmy BID is thrilled to announce Myah Wood as the lucky winner of the $5,000 Winter Weekend Getaway to Queenstown!

This exciting prize, organised by House of Travel The Square, promises an unforgettable adventure in the heart of New Zealand’s adventure capital.

Myah Wood and her boyfriend, Euan Kilbane, eagerly anticipate their upcoming trip. Myah works at Toyworld, while Euan is employed at Central Demolition. Their love for nature, travel, and family made them the perfect candidates for this remarkable experience.

The prize package includes a Mitsubishi Outlander SUV rental, luxurious Copthorne Queenstown Lakefront accommodation, a scenic TSS Earnslaw sightseeing trip, an exhilarating Shotover Jetboat ride, relaxation at Onsen Hot Pools, a Gondola ride with breathtaking views, and a sumptuous buffet dinner. Additionally, Myah and Euan will each enjoy three thrilling Luge rides, promising an action-packed weekend.

Matthew Jeanes, spokesperson for Palmy BID, said, “We couldn’t be happier to offer this incredible opportunity to Myah and Euan. It’s fantastic to see members of our community winning such a fantastic prize and experiencing the wonders of Queenstown.”

The competition, held in conjunction with the Ford Ranger New Zealand Rural Games, aimed to promote local businesses in Palmy’s CBD while offering participants a chance to win an exciting getaway. Myah and Euan secured their entry by spending $20 at participating stores in Palmy’s CBD and completing the entry form. Daniel O’Regan, Marketing Manager for Ford Ranger New Zealand Rural Games, says Queenstown is special to the Rural Games family.

It’s the birthplace of the Rural Games and the hometown of the late Bill Tapley, who started the New Zealand Cowpat Throwing Championship in the 1970s.
