We Need A Giant Boost Of Queensland’s Vitamin Me

We Need A Giant Boost Of Queensland’s Vitamin Me

Queensland is our favourite travel destination in Australia and we’ve visited there several times in the last few years, experiencing the vibrancy of Brisbane and the glitz and glamour of the Gold Coast.

It’s where us Victorians go for adventure, natural beauty, nicer weather and a place to unwind.

The two of us have been itching to get back to see more of the Sunshine State and already have plans to visit Hamilton Island for the first time in May.

Recently we were informed that the awesome team over at Nuffnang were running a competition that asked the following question…

“How would you boost your ‘Vitamin Me’ levels with a $5,000 dream holiday to Queensland?”

Firstly, what is Vitamin Me?

Vitamin Me is the name given to that special feeling of relaxation, connection with loved ones and inner shine of the “real you” that you can only get on a Queensland holiday.

We definitely need more of that!

So we started brainstorming and came up with an endless list of things that would boost our Vitamin Me levels on a $5,000 dream holiday to Queensland.

Here’s why we need a giant boost of Vitamin Me

We’ve also come up with a list of the top four specific things that would boost our Vitamin Me levels significantly on a Queensland holiday.

The increase in our Vitamin Me levels is measured and shown next to each item.

Ultimate Relaxation: Six-Star Luxury Hotel Accommodation Vitamin Me +600

To help us relax from the pressures of daily life and achieve that ultimate feeling of relaxation, we would spend the first part of our Queensland Holiday at the luxurious Palazzo Versace on the Gold Coast which is renowned for being “a destination within a destination”.

It’s often described as Australia’s only six-star hotel and it’s somewhere we’ve always wanted to stay one day. Look! Our Vitamin Me is up 600 already – whooo!

Become an Antarctic Adventurer at SeaWorldVitamin Me +500

For those who have been reading our blog for a while, you’ll know that our interaction with Beluga Whales at SeaWorld San Antonio was the highlight of our entire around-the-world trip.

Our animal experiences have created some of our best memories and the opportunity to become an Antarctic Adventurer and get up close and interact with King and Gentoo Penguins, Kieron’s favorite animals, just can’t be passed up.

A Romantic Scenic Flight Over Heart ReefVitamin Me +800

We recently asked our Facebook Fans where they would go if they could take a helicopter flight anywhere in the world.

Our answer: Heart Reef in the Whitsundays, which is located in beautiful Queensland. Ticking something off the bucket list is sure to boost our Vitamin Me levels and you never know what might happen if those levels are raised high enough.

Experience Australia’s Highest Tandem SkydiveVitamin Me +1000

Sunshine Coast Skydivers offers Australia’s highest tandem skydive. If we’re going to lose our skydiving virginity, why not lose it in style with an adrenalin-pumping beach tandem skydive?

Stepping outside of our comfort zone in the ultimate positive thinking activity is sure to give us a huge boost of Vitamin Me as currently the thought of jumping out of a plane absolutely terrifies both of us. If permitted, one of us will record the entire experience on our GoPro HD Camera to share with all of our readers.

So that’s how we would boost our Vitamin Me levels with a $5,000 dream holiday to Queensland.

Tourism Queensland – can you please help us boost our Vitamin Me levels?

    Ooh your Vitamin ME holiday sounds like so much fun. The Heart Reef looks so cute!

    Definitely stay at the Palazzo Versace – it is stunning! Try and get a private condo on the ground floor and you’ll get your own private pool (overlooking the main pool) or if you get a top story one you’ll find it has a spa on the roof and that they are generally double story!

    Good luck!!!

      Thanks Nicole! We love Queensland so much and can’t wait to get back up there soon.

      Very lucky you’ve stayed at the Palazzo! Thanks for the tip, we may just splurge on that the next time we’re up there and live like kings for a day.

      Look forward to seeing your entry! :)
