Secret Queensland destinations revealed

HOLIDAY bookings in Queensland will be boosted by three soon when the winners of the Secrets of Queensland competition claim their prizes.

The trio added photographs to a special online photo gallery that highlighted Queensland holiday destinations visited by our website users.

One photo from each of APN’s coverage areas, from Mackay to Coffs Harbour, was selected as a finalist, with the public invited to select the top three. Those three photos secured a Queensland holiday valued at $1000 for each of the star photographers.

The winning photographs feature parasailing on Hamilton Island, soaking in a sunset at Montes Beach Resort on the Whitsundays and capturing the laid-back atmosphere of Heron Island.

Make sure you pick up a copy of next Saturday’s paper when a special five-page feature will showcase many of the almost 200 photos submitted for the competition.
