To celebrate the launch of SUITCASE Volume 29: The Taste Issue, we’ve teamed up with Etihad Airways and Kiwi Collection to send a reader and a friend on the holiday of a lifetime.

In what we think is one of our best giveaways yet, we’ve curated a trip to Australia so epic that we’re having second thoughts about giving it away.

Far from your standard “gap-yah” getaway featuring hectic hostels and never-ending bus journeys, this is all about giving you a taste of the good life. And that starts with return business-class flights from London Heathrow thanks to Etihad Airways (inflight spoils include luxurious fully flat beds, personalised entertainment hub and a restaurant-quality, dine any time menu). Even better, we’re letting you choose whether you fly to Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane.

Yes, really.

Will you make tracks to Melbourne to get stuck into the city’s dynamic dining scene and hip markets; set your sights on Sydney’s cosmopolitan neighbourhoods and bleached beaches or hit up the creative shores of Brisbane, aka the “Sunshine State”?

We’re not sure either, but when you’ve pinned your colours to the mast, it’s time to decide where to stay. Cue: more spoils.

Kiwi Collection is the world’s largest and most diverse selection of boutique hotels and luxury lodgings, and they’re giving you 2,000 USD hotel credit to spend wherever you please. From chic city boltholes to surfside retreats, Oz is your pearly oyster – and it’s looking particularly tasty.

So there you have it, the good life, Aussie-style. And on that note, we bid you good luck.
