We’ve teamed up with Casino Canberra to offer you a chance to win the ultimate New Year’s Eve for you and five friends – guaranteed no Oompa Loompas!

If you ever wanted to be Charlie in Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory and find a Golden Ticket to a land overflowing with culinary delights, you’re in luck.

We’ve hidden a number of Golden Tickets in copies of HerCanberra’s Magazine around Canberra and finding this ticket will score you a place at a pre-New Year’s Eve cocktail event at Casino Canberra AND put you in the running to win a brilliant night to ring in 2017.

It’s being billed as ‘Canberra’s Most Glamourous New Year’s Eve Party’. Casino Canberra General Manager Rhiannon Bach says we’re talking a delicious grazing menu complete with an opulent gold dessert buffet, free flowing bubbly, and oodles of entertainment from musicians, DJs and dancers.

“There will be a live band downstairs – Something Like This – and they’ll be covering all the songs we know and love,” she says. “There will be showgirls, performers and after midnight, DJ Archie from Sydney will take over the music.”

Rhiannon anticipates that one of the biggest attractions will be the opulent gold dessert buffet featuring gold dusted donuts and jelly cubes with edible gold flakes…and lots of bubbly.

“To me, champagne and New Year’s Eve goes hand in hand,” says Rhiannon. “So we made sure there would be enough of it.”

If you want to take it to the next level, climb the stairs to the exclusive lounge for all this goodness plus cocktails and beers, a fresh seafood station, tunes by Magnifik (Ashley Feraude) and private poker games.

“The ‘Next Level’ package offers everything that you get downstairs, but you also get access to The Lotus Room, supported by Moet & Chandon and featuring Moet & Chandon Ice,” adds Rhiannon.

As it might very well be a big celebration, why not make a night of it? Crowne Plaza Canberra has come on board to offer an exceptional Stay & Play package so there’s no need to try and land a cab for your journey home.

If that wasn’t enough… They’re also literally giving away gold.

“Someone will be leaving the Casino with a solid gold bar worth $8000,” explains Rhiannon. “We’re also giving away an iPhone, Beats by Dre and Natural 9 VIP Dinner Experience.”
