It's been a bit of a wild ride lately and you deserve a break. Yep, with all the Zoom meetings, new puppies and cancelled plans, it's important to take some time for you. And what better way to do so than by booking a vacay in your own city? You know, one that's not dependent on border restrictions? And, what if we told you it wouldn't cost you a penny?

We've partnered up with City of Sydney and Destination NSW to give one lucky Sydneysider (and their mate or date) the ultimate two-day staycation in the CBD.

Should you win this prize, not only will you be put up for two nights in the four-star Crowne Plaza in Darling Harbour, but you'll also get to wine and dine on us. You'll get brekkie and dinner at the Crowne, as well as brunch at new CBD cafe Picco Leo and lunch at the Ragazzi crew's new pasta bar Fabbrica, plus get to take home a couple of its pasta packs. Then, you'll be treated to drinks and snacks at the award-winning Maybe Sammy down in The Rocks, followed by a nightcap at Vini Divini Wine Lab.

And the fun doesn't stop there. We're also throwing in two tickets to a night at pop-up outdoor gig space Sunset Piazza and tickets for a behind-the-scenes architecture tour at Sydney Opera House for you culture vultures out there.

Sound too good to be true? Enter details below to go in the running.
