Winter has well and truly arrived and places around Australia are experiencing single digit or even minus temperatures throughout the day.
If you're begging for a bit of sunshine and some time off work, then do we have an exciting announcement for you.
The cat food legends DINE will be sending you and one other person on a five-day holiday to Port Douglas to lap up some vitamin D, go snorkeling on the world-famous Great Barrier Reef and enjoy some R&R.
The winner of the competition will get free return flights from your nearest capital city in Australia and transfers from Cairns to Port Douglas.
You'll be staying at the stunning Peppers Beach Club, where you'll get free breakfast each day, and a Great Barrier Reef experience voucher, where you'll get to see firsthand the DINE and Mars reef restoration program featured in the video here.
How you fill in the time each beautiful day is up to you. You could do a day trip up to the Daintree Rainforest or sip mimosas by the pool. The holiday is worth up to an incredible $15,000, so it's well worth applying.
You'll be allowed to go on your trip whenever you want between September this year and September next year (subject to availability).
You have to be an Australian citizen to enter the competition and be over the age of 16. Applications will be open from today (June 7), ahead of World Oceans Day tomorrow, until the end of the month (July 30).
Here's the important part. You have to go to the DINE website online entry form to apply.
Once you're there, you'll have to watch the video that raises money for coral restoration and then answer this seemingly simple question: What word does the coral reef in the video spell and what does that word mean to you for the future of our oceans?
The judges will pick the winner based off who has the most 'creativity and originality'.
So, you better get amongst the action because, as they say, you've got to be in it to win it. A full list of the competition's Terms and Conditions can be found here.
The competition comes after DINE helped unveil the amazing HOPE coral reef off the coast of Sulawesi in Indonesia last month.
It's named that because the man-made structure literally spells HOPE and can be seen from space.
It's designed to be a 'symbol to show the world how positive change can happen within our lifetime' and is a part of the DINE mission to restore more than 185,000 square meters of coral reefs around the world by 2029; with one of the five key locations being in the Great Barrier Reef.
LADbible Australia has also been trying to protect the Great Barrier Reef through its Citizen Reef campaign.
We have gathered tens of thousands of signatures for a petition to get one of the most important natural attractions be declared an Australian citizen.
If that was achieved, the federal government would be required to look after it forever.
AU residents 16+ only. Competition starts 12.01am (AEST) 7/6/21 and ends 11.59pm (AEST) 30/7/21. To enter, watch our video & have your say. Max 1 entry per person. Best answer wins: trip to Port Douglas, including flights, accommodation, and experience (RRP up to $15k). Full T&Cs at www.dine.com.au/promotions. Promoter: Mars Australia Pty Ltd.
