Travel: Win a holiday

The Independent and Independent on Sunday, in association with Independent Travellers World, the UK's premier consumer travel show are giving readers the opportunity to win one of three fantastic holidays. You could experience the east coast of Australia, a South African safari or a glacial adventure.

THE AUSTRALIAN EXPERIENCE

Win two tickets to Sydney courtesy of Lauda Air (stand 20), Europe's fastest growing airline, from where you will spend two nights in the new Sydney Central YHA Hostel before exploring the Blue Mountains with Oz Experience. Then taking the 'Fair Dinkum' bus you will travel up the East coast and through the red centre of Australia. The lucky winners will experience 200ft of rush jumping from Australia's highest Bungy at Airlie Beach, all arranged by "Barrier Reef Bungy" and the feeling of free fall by tandem skydiving from 8,000ft and landing on Mission Beach, courtesy of "Jump the Beach Skydives". The Oz Experience (stand 78) pass includes a flight from Cairns to Darwin and transport down to Alice Springs, Cooper Pedy, Flinders Ranges, Adelaide and Melbourne from where they will take the Lauda Air flight home.

Dates subject to availability. Flights have to be taken by 31 October 1998 and are valid for 1 year. Winners responsible for departure and other taxes on the ticket.

Excludes airport tax. No cash value. Non-transferable, non-refundable.

Flight and tours must be taken together and the winner must travel out and return together. Oz Experience pass is valid for 1 year and takes a minimum of 23 days to complete.

Competition not open to employees of Lauda Air or Mantisflow publications.

SPECTACULAR SOUTHERN AFRICA

One lucky Independent reader will spend 15 nights in South Africa courtesy of STA travel (stand 143), specialists in student and young independent travel, and Kumuka Expeditions (stand 32). This adventure includes an in depth look at Zimbabwe, taking in the mighty Zambesi river, the spectacular Victoria Falls and some of Zimbabwe's finest game parks.

GLACIAL ADVENTURE

The winners will enjoy a skidoo journey across the glacier over the three days, where you'll stay in a comfortable mountain lodge at the edge of the glacier.

A day will also be spent in an Icelandic "Super Jeep" travelling from Reykjavik into the highlands, visiting Gullfoss, the golden waterfall and Geysir, the hot spring area, en route.
