This is not a drill. Gold Coast Airport is giving away one million Qantas Points to make a lucky adventurer's travel dreams come true. 

Dubbed 'Won Million', this awesome prize is up for grabs to celebrate the opening of Gold Coast Airport's international terminal expansion. The ribbon will be cut sometime over the coming months to reveal a bigger and better multi-level terminal, complete with six extra gates to streamline your next trip. 

The expansion isn't all function and no flash. Expect 18-metre high ceilings, a timber decked forecourt, a spacious departure lounge, and glass aerobridges to see you off with a view. It's a celebration of all things Gold Coast while giving jet-setters more options to connect with the world after our recent stint of being homebound. The chance to win one million Qantas Points is just the cherry on top.

One million Qantas Points is no joke, it's your ticket aronud the world. To put it in perspective, here are a few things you can do with a cool one million of those coveted Qantas Points.

Let's start with the obvious choice: a first-class trip around the world for two. Coming in at just under a million points*, you and a pal can hit up Singapore, Japan, London, New York, and back again in style. Bask in the novel experience of a long-haul flight with champagne in one hand, a gourmet menu in the other, and more legroom than we economy regulars would dare to dream of.

Want to explore our own backyard? Qantas Frequent Flyers' partnership with Journey Beyond lets you book your spot on a cross-country rail expedition using points alone. Spend four days travelling from Darwin to Adelaide on The Ghan Expedition in one of their Gold Cabins for a casual 285,000 points. The Indian Pacific route will take you from Perth to Sydney for a cheeky 225,00 points, or hop aboard the Great Southern to venture from Brisbane to Adelaide for just 210,000 points. 

Or, if you wish to be thrifty with your newfound travel budget, one million points will take you a long way. Book a return economy flights from the Gold Coast to Tokyo for under 100,000 points and book a room in a Qantas-partnered hotel for two weeks for under 200,000 points—all with enough points in the bank to retake the trip two times over. 

For the homebodies, one million points won't go to waste. You can shop movie tickets, Apple products, electronics, jewellery, R.M.Williams, and much more—all using Qantas Points. 

Now for the big question. How do you enter into the running to win this mother of all travel prizes? All you need to do is complete the form here, and you're in the running—too easy.
