WIN 5 nights - the Facebook Challenge!


Relax on Blinky Beach - Lord Howe IslandWe’re always a bit behind at Lord Howe Island in the technology stakes - we only embraced landlines 30 years ago and have proudly rejected mobile phones. Nevertheless, due to popular demand we’ve decided to communicate more in forums such as Facebook with regular updates on Lord Howe news, entertainment, lifestyle, food and gossip, plus special events, deals and packages at Pinetrees. We’d also love to hear from you and encourage stories, tips and photos from your Lord Howe adventures. We’d like the Pinetrees Facebook page to be a noticeboard for the vast online community of Lord Howe enthusiasts.

In recent weeks we’ve posted photos of Cyclone Sandra (that went viral in media outlets around the world), recipes from our chefs, and photos of the SEXIEST man in Australian television, who visited a few days ago with his film crew. We’ll continue to post good content and promise not to bombard you with commercial stuff or mindless details about what we had for breakfast.

As an incentive to ‘like’ our Facebook page and engage with the Lord Howe community, we’re offering 5 nights’ accommodation for 2 people (twin share) in an Under the Pines room, with full breakfasts, lunches (including picnic and BBQ hampers), afternoon teas, 4 course dinners, use of all lodge facilities and island airport transfers. You’ll need to cover the cost of airfares, drinks and taxes, but they’re good value outside peak season and we can help you find the cheapest options – or you can book with FF points. If you win the competition, you’ll need to travel between 1 May 2013 and 31 August 2013 (inclusive). You’re welcome to travel during our feature food and wine, wellness or jazz weeks (subject to availability). A small surcharge applies if you’d like to join our fully-guided expedition Wilderness Weeks.

To enter the competition, all you need to do is ‘like’ the Pinetrees Lodge Facebook page and leave a comment on our Facebook competition post, in 50 words or less, about ‘the Lord Howe experience you dream most about’. Hint – a sense of humour helps. The most important detail is that you must ‘like’ our Facebook page and leave a comment on our Facebook competition post by Friday 5 April 2013. If you’ve already ‘liked’ our Facebook page, then perhaps you can encourage your travel-savvy friends to ‘like’ us as well. After a completely subjective judging process, we’ll announce the winner on Facebook on Tuesday 9 April 2013.

If you’re not a Facebook member already, you’ll need to ‘sign up’ (with the other billion people around the world), otherwise click on the Pinetrees Lodge Facebook page and submit your entry – it will take 5 minutes… Good luck!
